ICO Legal Services

Having a strong legal team is vital for every ICO. There is a general misconception that you only need an ICO Lawyer to review your T&Cs. This could not be further from the truth.

One of the most vital issues of every ICO is the token design. Your token’s utility might make it seem like a Utility token, but legally this is not enough. A security token isn’t just a token that gives a return, interest or rights. The way you present your ICO is enough to legally give your token a security nature. This implies that you must pay attention to the way you will draft the documents. It is of utmost importance that you ensure that you do not fall foul of regulations, so that the token would not be considered a security. Clients also ask us how to carry out a legal review of ICO documents. Following this legal review, we would issue a legal opinion.
