We have been engaged in advising both buy and sell-side clients in the cryptoassets arena since our inception. In this new and fast developing space, we have helped our clients analyse the implications of increasing regulatory oversight, including as a result of registration requirements (under anti-terrorist and money laundering legislation), advised on how to work constructively with regulators and aided the consideration of the impact of engaging in cryptoasset business in light of the overarching nature of a regulated firm’s adherence to its authorisations and permissions. Our extensive experience in the derivatives and securities finance space means we are extremely well placed to consider and advise on transaction structures, and to this end we have both drafted bespoke trading and custody agreements and negotiated the underlying documentation (both cash and OTC) to be entered into with custodians, counterparties, intermediaries, issuers and our clients’ own customers.
