Cryptocurrency and Digital Asset Disputes
The Digital Disputes team at JMW are experienced solicitors who act for individuals and corporate entities in circumstances where digital assets such as cryptocurrencies or Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) form the subject matter of a commercial dispute.
JMW have acted on high value civil fraud matters obtaining proprietary injunctions, worldwide freezing orders and disclosure orders including in relation to cryptocurrency exchanges. This has involved acting urgently and without notice in order to ensure that online wallets are frozen without further dissipation of the crypto-assets involved.
JMW is one of the first firms in England and Wales to successfully obtain a disclosure order and then subsequently a worldwide freezing order over crypto-assets in the High Court.
We have good relationships with specialist counsel and market-leading asset tracing experts who are able to trace cryptocurrency and wallets associated with the fraudsters along the blockchain.
JMW have also been instructed with regard to misrepresentation claims, including where there has been inducement into investing in cryptocurrency products, and contractual disputes (including smart contracts) where cryptocurrency is involved.
