Founders and management teams hire me to bring new products to market in the cryptocurrency industry. Clients know our work together is informed by experience working with some of the best in the industry. I am determined to find solutions that reduce risk and ensure compliance for innovative businesses in the digital asset space.
My commercial agreements and guidance has been used for billions of dollars of transaction volume. Designing agreements, workflows, and means of doing business are areas where I can deliver value. As a result of my work with great clients, several percentage points of the Canadian population has been onboarded into virtual currency dealers & marketplaces using processes I've worked on as a lawyer. Since 2014, I've been design pioneering contracts and legal strategies that ensures clients can grow within evolving legal frameworks for cryptocurrency.
Clients most appreciate advice aligned with their business reality, the opinions of other legal counsel, and regulators. Sound, practical, business-minded solutions that scale well are the best legal solutions.
Unfortunately Addison has a full client list at the moment. You can sign up for the waitlist here. Availability is expected in fall, 2022.
Almost all of Addison's work is what he calls "long-term law", an in-depth engagement between the client and lawyer, that speeds up engagements and gets far better results than the typical approach to legal advice. The pay-by-the-hour model is dominant in law today, and serves many people well, but isn't the same sort of advice that can come from being deeply embedded in a client's business through close work on Slack, regular video calls, and impromptu phone calls. Knowledge work and quick replies are easier with a tighter focus on the client than what is possible for most lawyers. This goes hand-in-hand with developing the in-depth product knowledge that cryptocurrency startups need.
Clients appreciate legal advice that's based on work for the early days of Ethereum, pillars of the Canadian cryptocurrency industry including one of the largest cryptocurrency dealers, and over a hundred other companies large and small in the emerging digital asset space. Having been involved in groundbreaking legal work defining the DeFi industry in Canada recently, and stablecoins, Addison is dedicated to a law practice at the forefront of digital asset technology.
