CNP Law Addresses Need for Cryptocurrency Advice
Interlaw firm Colin Ng & Partners LLP (CNP Law) has recently launched a cryptocurrency law service. Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin have been in the news a lot over the past year and the new team offers end-to-end legal services for various aspects of blockchain applications, crypocurrency businesses and ICOs.
The team is advising issuers of tokens, ICO advisors, crypto exchange operators, venture capital firms and entrepreneurs on Singaporean legal issues and regulatory compliance for a range of planned business activities.
“Whilst this is a nascent area of business in Singapore, it is also an area of increasing interest for many of our clients,” says partner Quek Li Fei who heads the cryptocurrency team. “It can affect all sectors including financial, entertainment, employment, logistics and energy, and in a rapidly developing environment set against the applicable regulatory regime, the right legal advice is crucial.”
