Legal Services - Currently Available

Mr. Cameron-Huff is currently accepting new clients: reception@cameronhuff.com.
Typical rates are 0.2 BTC/mo for monthly fixed fee engagements.

He knows other expert lawyers if he's not right for you or fully booked.

What Else Is Different From Other Law Firms?

  1. Crypto Knowledge: You won't need to explain "Blockchain 101". Or "Blockchain 201". He's taught crypto law at U of T law school. He oversaw the development of a new cryptocurrency wallet (Jaxx Liberty) while President of Decentral Inc. in 2017-2018. He's consulted for key regulators in Canada, law enforcement, and provided advice to hundreds of private clients.
  2. Fast: Every client is different, but a decade of intense work in the crypto sector means most problems can be addressed immediately. You won't be paying for research or waiting weeks like with other firms.
  3. Dynamic Teams: Mr. Cameron-Huff practices in dynamic teams with the right lawyers for the job, introducing professionals as needed. He knows the right people that you need.
  4. Tech Native: You deserve a lawyer who uses technology effectively and can use Google Docs/Office/etc. Mr. Cameron-huff is the programmer behind several online businesses, and makes legal-related programs in his spare time. Thinking like a programmer, a lawyer, and a startup founder, Addison's advice is precise and useful.
  5. In-depth Advice: High-level advice that solves problems, and then the follow through to commercial drafting, updating policies, or addressing the marketing team. Strategy followed by action.
  6. Fiercely Independent: no referral fees ever paid to other professionals or collected from them. Referrals only to the experts in Canada and abroad who are the best in the business.
  7. Forthright Communication: You deserve a lawyer speaks up when they don't know. Even highly experienced lawyers don't know everything because the world's a big place, and laws that interact with blockchains cross many areas of legal expertise. False confidence or overly optimistic advice is damaging to business teams that are trying to move fast. Solving legal problems promptly so they don't weigh down the business is essential for high-powered teams.

A Different Legal Practice: “Long-Term Law”

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.

Addison has spoken at venues ranging from Bay St. law firms, the Ontario Bar Association, law schools, the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association National Conference, and many other events since 2014. He knows what's happening, what's happened, and why it matters to you. Very few lawyers can claim this level of involvement in the industry since 2014. If you're not ready to be a client yet, or you'd just like to find out what he's interested in: follow him on Twitter.
