In January-February 2018, representatives of the publication sent requests to more than 400 law firms with a request to tell them about the completed and unfinished ICOs that they accompanied, and what their clients are interested in in the field of blockchain and cryptocurrency transactions. 17 law firms answered them, and only three of them were able to provide information on completed ICOs, including Nadmitov, Ivanov and Partners.
The company's largest projects in this area include:
December 2017: representing a foreign company in a deal to acquire shares in an American company that were paid for in bitcoin. The firm was the first to advise on an M&A transaction where cryptocurrency was used as a counter-satisfaction. The deal was subject to New York State law.
July 2017: Advising Giga Watt, a Singaporean company, on a project to build the largest cryptocurrency mining farm in North America. The ICO ended and $ 22 million was raised as a result.
Advising Singapore-based Cryptonomos (Cryptonomos.com), a popular ICO platform.
In addition, Alexey Ivanov, co-founder of the firm, and Maxim Bashkatov, financial advisor, co-authored the book "Blockchain at the peak of the hype: legal risks and opportunities", which was released in 2017.
Law Firm Nadmitov, Ivanov & Partners actively advises clients on M&A transactions, blockchain, cryptocurrencies and ICOs.
