Highly valuable and easily transferrable, digital asset disputes require lawyers that understand the products and underlying blockchain infrastructure, and have an ability to move fast, often across different jurisdictions. The first step against dishonest parties is often to freeze the assets by Court Order so they cannot be moved or traded.
CANDEY has a track record of acting for clients all over the world to recover control of cryptocurrency against a range of opponents including individuals who control online wallets, and exchanges. We have experience in proceedings concerning
(i) the failure by exchanges to fulfil transactions;
(ii) the disputed ownership of ICO proceeds; and,
(iii) the recovery of cryptocurrency from opponents who have moved currency from shared wallets.
We have secured worldwide freezing injunctions – notably in offshore jurisdictions (British Virgin Islands) - to protect our clients’ digital assets including both Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Our ability to deliver results is simple: we have expertise in offshore and English jurisdictions, understand the asset class enabling us to communicate complex products and concepts in simple language – and most importantly we move quickly.
