Partner Brian Klein Named One of the Top Crypto and Blockchain Attorneys By Business Insider

Partner Brian Klein was named one of the nation’s top 19 crypto and blockchain-focused attorneys by Business Insider in a July 28, 2021 article …

The fast-evolving arena of digital assets “is a very difficult space to get a good lawyer,” one chief legal officer told Business Insider. “You have to have a working knowledge of just about everything.”

“Klein, a former federal prosecutor, is ‘the guy’ in crypto enforcement, said one litigator in the space,” wrote Business Insider. “Marvin Ammori, the general counsel of Uniswap, compared him to Arya Stark, the cunning and deadly heroine of the Game of Thrones series.”

The profile noted that Klein’s clients have included (the developer of the EOS blockchain protocol) in litigation and an SEC settlement that was far more lenient than precedents; the founders of Tezos (which raised more than $220 million in a 2017 offering) in class actions; and Virgil Griffith, the Ethereum developer fighting charges that he violated sanctions on North Korea.
