Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Legal Advisory Services

Blockchain technologies and cryptocurrency projects are a growing presence in Western Canada’s tech sector. Regulations are still in their infancy but have already touched areas of tax, securities, anti-money laundering, and cybersecurity laws.

As these technologies gain mainstream presence and adoption, we should expect the regulatory regimes to become more comprehensive, and potentially, more restrictive. Nevertheless, the prospect of future limitations to crypto, metaverse, and blockchain activities have not slowed entrepreneurial innovation nor the industry’s overall optimism for what’s to come.

Client Reviews

Friendly and Helpful

I have been a client of Gus Lu for 3 years for both personal and business matters. He has been involved with share purchase agreements that required negotiating with the seller, doing the paperwork, and ensuring that things were kept on track with any necessary reminders — to both parties as I have been known to procrastinate. His polite insistence on getting what I needed to be ensured that the other parties knew that we meant business — while maintaining good relationships. I really appreciate the patience he shows when I want to understand every bit of legalese — I can count on him to clearly explain matters. Mr. Lu’s lawyerly skill at stating things in a tactful and concise manner has helped me out in many of my business communications and documents. I very much appreciate how Gus would always deal with my requests in a prompt and friendly manner. He truly made me feel cared for and supported in any dealings with him.
