Uniondale, NY – April 4, 2023 – Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, P.C., announced today that the firm has formed a Blockchain Technology and Digital Asset Practice Group. The group will draw upon the expertise of attorneys across the Firm’s practice areas to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to matters in this rapidly evolving space. The firm is poised to represent clients in, among other matters, criminal and regulatory investigations and prosecutions concerning digital assets, bankruptcy proceedings involving cryptocurrency exchanges, lenders and custodians, and corporate and securities transactions.
The new Blockchain Technology and Digital Asset Practice Group will be chaired by Jessica M. Baquet and consists of members from many of the Firm’s core specialties. This includes a number of practice area leaders—Michael Amato, chair of the Firm’s Corporate Restructuring and Bankruptcy Practice Group, Alexander Bateman and Andrew Garbarino, co-chairs of the Firm’s White Collar Crime and Investigations Practice Group, Steven Kuperschmid, co-chair of the Firm’s Corporate and Securities Department and chair of the Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Practice Group, and David Schoenhaar, co-chair of the Firm’s Trusts and Estates Department—as well as attorneys Michael Faltischek, Stephen Fox, Richard Frankel, Samantha Guido, Nicole Osborne, Alexandra Piscitello, and Daniel Shapiro.
“The members of the Blockchain Technology and Digital Asset Practice Group have been representing clients in diverse matters concerning digital assets and have been writing and lecturing on related topics for some time now. The founding of this practice group is a natural outgrowth of our Firm’s commitment to being at the forefront of legal developments that affect our clients, especially as Federal and state governments ramp up their efforts to regulate in this area,” said Adam Silvers, Managing Partner, Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, P.C.
“I am thrilled to serve as the chair of the firm’s Blockchain Technology and Digital Asset Practice Group, which is one of the first groups of its kind on Long Island. My interest began several years ago when I became involved in the cryptocurrency markets. This provided me with unique perspectives as someone with both an understanding of the law and practical knowledge of blockchain technology and digital asset ownership. My colleagues and I look forward to guiding our clients as they engage with these technologies in their business dealings and personal lives,” said Jessica Baquet.
