Crypto M&A: Current trends and unique legal and regulatory considerations

Partner Dario de Martino and associate Mara Goodman co-authored a chapter in the new book Global Legal Insights - Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Regulation 2023, focused on government regulation of blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies. The new collection covers everything from government regulatory approaches to mining, border restrictions, taxation, and money laundering requirements.

De Martino and Goodman’s chapter highlights the unique legal and regulatory considerations in crypto-related mergers and acquisitions that have arisen due to the new transaction strategies companies have adopted amid challenging markets and increased interest in the metaverse.

They look not only at the approaches various agencies and governmental bodies have taken but also highlight the privacy and cybersecurity, intellectual property, and tax implications companies must consider.
