Experience Legal is reimagining the user experience of legal services. We run our practice like our clients design their products – with an intense, singular focus on user experience. 

In other words, it's not about us – it's about your experience with us.

Your Goals

You’re a developer with a great program, you’re a mathematician with an innovative algorithm, you’re the CEO of a budding start-up. Your goal is to implement your brilliant idea and ensure that your startup is successful. Your goal isn’t to form a business, hire employees, seek fundraising, register your securities, protect your intellectual property or challenge government enforcement actions. Don’t worry – that's what we're here for. Experience Legal will leave you free to focus on your goals while we ease you through the legal and entrepreneurial lifecycle of your business.

Our Solutions

For Entrepreneurs, by Entrepreneurs

Although we were trained as lawyers at some of the largest law firms in the world, we're really entrepreneurs at heart who happen to be lawyers. That's why we're passionate about shepherding tech startups and early-stage companies through their entire life cycle of legal and business issues, from entity formation (onshore and offshore), venture financing and other capital raises, strategic partnerships, through (hopeful) exit. 

So sure, we know all the legal stuff: we routinely prepare offering documents, including private placement memoranda, partnership agreements, and seed capital agreements. We stand out because we provide the same depth of legal experience and quality of advice as large law firms, but augment it with a superior understanding of business and a more creative touch in getting our clients to "yes" (not "maybe"). 

We are globally-minded people, and we love working with entrepreneurs from around the world. We collaborate with counsel from Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Cayman Islands to achieve holistic, global solutions for our global clients. 


Experts in Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

While we work with innovative companies of all stripes, we have a particular fondness for companies in the enterprise blockchain and cryptocurrency space. We have helped dozens of such companies with:

  1. Understanding the United States securities laws, including over $100 million of token sales through exemptions: 
    • Regulation A+ (mini-IPO)
    • Regulation D/Rule 506 (accredited investors)
    • Regulation S (offshore investors), and 
    • Regulation CF (crowdfunding); 
  2. Analyzing digital assets under the securities laws for possible listing on exchanges;
  3. Reviewing white papers, marketing materials, and assisting with accredited investor certification; 
  4. Proactive remediation of non-compliant initial coin offerings (ICOs);
  5. Developing anti-money laundering (AML), know-your-customer (KYC), and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) compliance programs; 
  6. Broker-dealer registration with FINRA; and
  7. Money services business registration with FinCEN.

We also have a robust investigations and regulatory enforcement practice. We have represented crypto and other clients who have received subpoenas and are facing investigations or enforcement actions by the U.S. Department of Justice, SEC, CFTC, and FINRA.
