Gotham Tech

With Web 3.0 at the core of an extensive technology movement, a struggle between possibility and regulation has emerged. In seeking to create a secure space that connects users and software without the use of intermediaries, Web 3.0 is ushering in an entirely new approach to commerce and exchange. At the same time, it is clear that existing policies, government agencies, and legal foundations cannot keep pace. As a result, those operating within this new phase of the Internet are being required to comply with long-established, albeit ill-fitting, structures that often slow, prevent, and stifle innovation.

At Gotham our team is committed to offering legal, regulatory, advocacy, and policy support for those pioneering the technology of tomorrow. Our solution-based strategies are designed to educate policy makers, challenge old models, and ultimately, clear the path for success.

Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains

Alongside the rise of virtual currencies and blockchain technologies, comes new opportunities for those who invest in, use, and/or develop them. However, as with all new markets, navigating the legal and political landscapes in which they exist can be challenging.

The experts at Gotham Government Relations can offer individualized plans, advice, and inside understanding to clients that seek to assimilate these technologies into either their current or prospective business models. Here are some of the ways we can help:

  • Advocacy support for regulatory change
  • Representation in state and federal enforcement actions
  • Guidance and legal aid with respect to:
    • Regulatory processes
    • Contracts
    • Privacy and security concerns (corporate, consumer, and investment)
    • Initial coin offerings (ICOs) or token generating events (TGEs)
    • Tax concerns
