Get a legal memorandum / legal opinion on the qualification of any crypto token under Swiss regulatory law and FINMA’s ICO Guidelines – whether NFT, security token, asset token, utility token, stable coin, cryptocurrency, governance token or any other type of token, our blockchain legal experts provide you with a written memo.
Are you about to sell your token in private sale via SAFT, in a public ICO, STO or IEO, or simply via airdrop? Qualifying your token is a crucial step to understanding your legal obligations, from AML/KYC duties to prospectus requirements.
To list your token, most crypto exchanges require a legal assessment from a reputable law firm confirming that the token does not qualify as a security or financial instrument. We focus our in-depth legal analysis to thoroughly address this key question.
Security tokens are subject to trading restrictions; Swiss crypto brokers and exchanges have to first assess the nature of the tokens they intend to offer to their clientele. Have our experts analyze and classify any number of tokens to mitigate the compliance risk under Swiss securities law.
To get full certainty on the legal qualification, we can obtain a no-action letter from FINMA on the token qualification for an additional CHF 2’500. Please note that this typically takes 2-6 months.
