A UK-based firm offers significant advantages when addressing disputes, claims and AML investigations (including proof of source of funds and source of wealth declarations) with crypto exchanges as well as in navigating fraud cases, given the well-defined regulatory landscape governing crypto assets in the country under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2023. Recognising crypto assets as property, this regulatory framework subjects them to comprehensive regulation, aligning with existing property laws. This ensures clarity through explicit guidelines and provisions governing their treatment and ownership.
Engaging the services of such a firm in the UK not only leverages the clarity provided by the Financial Services and Markets Act 2023 but also taps into a broader legal landscape encompassing other pertinent legislation. This strategic approach grants clients the distinctive advantage of accessing legal protections enshrined in the aforementioned act and beyond. These safeguards empower clients with rights and entitlements analogous to those associated with traditional forms of property, thereby fortifying their legal position in matters pertaining to crypto assets.
What sets Crypto Legal apart is its distinctive structure and size, enabling it to offer a genuinely personalized service to its clientele. The firm’s partners and principal associates are dedicated to ensuring efficiency at every phase of the process, guaranteeing the highest level of protection and safeguarding clients’ investments.
