German Crypto Currency Lawyer

In the world of cryptocurrencies and crypto securities, an impressive transformation has taken place, especially in recent years. Not only have cryptocurrencies developed as a possible alternative to the conventional monetary system and as a new asset class. The crypto world has also been enriched by novel fields of application through blockchain technology in general, as well as a variety of innovations such as decentralised applications, up to decentralised trading venues, non-fungible tokens (NFT) and crypto securities, to name a few.

Providers of financial services, trading platform operators and issuers are also confronted with various legal challenges in the area of cryptocurrencies and crypto securities.

From a lawyer's perspective, the aim is to minimise legal risks and to promote the success of the business model, also in communication with the financial supervisory authority.
