Bitcoin set in motion a global movement that is now reshaping how we save, spend, and ultimately organize our lives. We are at the beginning of a new wave of innovation.

I work for small teams that change the world. My work has been used for hundreds of millions of dollars of transactions. I design pioneering contracts and business strategies that ensure that my clients can scale and withstand regulatory scrutiny. My own story begins in 2014 with the Ethereum founding team and a Bitcoin core developer. I hope the next chapter involves you.

True innovators don't want ivory tower legal advice. I've run a crypto wallet company with over 750,000 users, started several legaltech ventures, and deeply understand the technical details of my client's products. I believe that technical knowledge is not a value-add, it is essential for providing legal advice in the cryptocurrency sector.

Regulatory Strategy Advisor

Do you love your current lawyer but need extra help navigating the complexities of Canada's shifting regulatory environment? A lawyer who stays on top of the minituae and can provide strategies for staying on the right side of regulators can be the difference between high growth or an expensive dance with one of Canada's many regulators. Stay on the right side by adjusting your product, marketing, and services with detail-oriented strategy.

As the Founding Director of the Bitcoin Foundation, and CEO of one of the first Bitcoin startups, I know who the experts are. Addison Cameron-Huff has deep expertise in this space and is a pleasure to work with.

Learn from someone who has been there so you can offer better advice and stay on the right side of blockchain trends. Mr. Cameron-Huff has provided extensive professional development support for a major regulator of Canada's securities industries, an investor protection SRO, the US water industry, the Law Society of Ontario, and given many unpaid talks to community groups that promote blockchain technology.

Advisory Engagement & Ad-hoc Legal

A few hours of learnings based on thousands of hours in the trenches can save enormous amounts of time and money. Some engagements are best handled on an ad-hoc basis, and these are often in the form of added firepower to your existing legal team.

Addison is an absolute pleasure to work with and his attention to detail is fantastic. He was instrumental in helping us close our acquisition on time and making the process extremely smooth.

Canadianization of Product

Canada is a significant player in the global cryptocurrency space. We don't always make as much noise but many companies recognize the opportunities in Canada from either a market, R&D tax credit or regulatory homebase perspective.

Addison has played an integral role in helping Unocoin explore and assess the feasibility of launching our trading platform in Canada. He's professional, straightforward, conservative and very knowledgeable about crypto.

Why Flat Fee Billing? Why Not Hourly?

Flat fee billing provides a predictable cost for clients and helps create a long-term alignment between lawyer and client. Clients should never think twice about picking up the phone or asking a question by email, and with fixed fee billing that's not an issue.

You deserve a lawyer who's invested in your long-term success and deeply understands your products, not a bill for every five minutes of time. This is a model that's particularly well-suited to the complex needs of blockchain companies' products and ensures that your lawyer will always have time for you.

What Else Do You Do Differently From Other Law Firms?

  1. No referral fees ever paid to other professionals or collected from them. You will only ever be referred to other professionals who are the right fit for you, and not because of any financial interest. Thay may be a global law firm, a boutique IP firm, or legal counsel in other countries.
  2. No surprise fees. You'll never see a $5 charge for "photocopying" or long-distance calls. It's 2021. You deserve a lawyer who uses technology effectively and can use Google Docs/Office/etc.
  3. No receptionists. You'll be connected directly.
  4. You won't need to explain "Blockchain 101". Or "201". But you will have a lawyer by your side who's committed to learning.
