FINANCIAL TECHNOLOGY

Our passion for innovation and new technology has led us into acquiring in-depth knowledge, practical know-hows and hands-on experience in the area of financial technology, particularly that of blockchain and cryptocurrency.

We regularly advise clients on Initial Coin Offerings (ICO), Security Token Offerings (STO) and Initial Exchange Offerings (1E0). Whilst presenting a seemingly more efficient method of fund raising than the traditional Initial Public Offerings (IPO), these new fund-raising mechanisms also come with an unprecedented level of risks that deserve expert attention. Our experienced blockchain lawyers are well versed with these related risks and we offer comprehensive legal services to guide our clients through these land mines.

We also work closely with other service providers including cryptocurrency exchanges and cryptocurrency fund managers. Not only do we provide support on a wide range of matters including company structure, legal compliance and general taxation advice, we further offer advisory and consultancy services on various licensing matters, including but not limited to:
  • SFC Regulatory Sandbox
  • SFC Type 1 to Type 10 licenses
  • Money Service Operators License
  • Money Lender License
  • Stored Value Facilities License
  • HKMA Virtual Bank License

Our services include, amongst other things:

  • Revising and reviewing whitepapers
  • Drafting of legal opinion on the characterization of the tokens
  • Devising optimal corporate and offering structures
  • Drafting of offering memorandum and related documents
  • Providing technical support on the issuance of the tokens
  • Providing KYC and AML solufions
