Digital Asset & Blockchain Technology

It’s about Bitcoin – and a whole lot more.

Digital assets and the blockchain have come a long way since Satoshi Nakamoto published that famous white paper in 2008 introducing the world to the concept of Bitcoin.  And Capes Sokol is at the forefront of providing knowledgeable legal counsel to clients involved in or interacting with the digital currency space.

As the first St. Louis area practice group to focus on virtual currencies and blockchain technology, we have assembled a diverse group of nationally recognized attorneys and paralegals with expertise across many practice areas impacted by cryptocurrency. This deliberate mix of skill sets provides clients with a collaborative group of professionals uniquely situated to deliver the guidance necessary to deal with the cutting-edge legal issues related to digital currency or blockchain transactions.

The cross-practice team includes members of the following practices:

  • White Collar Criminal Defense & Internal Investigations
  • Civil & Criminal Tax Controversy & Litigation
