Introducing BCF’s Blockchain Team
A robust hydroelectric infrastructure, competitive electricity rates, world-class university and research centres as well as a favorable banking and regulatory environment are only some of the many features that position Quebec as a data centre and cryptocurrency mining hub. Stakeholders in this ecosystem require, among other things, commercial, regulatory, tax, environmental, and banking advice from lawyers who are well versed in the field.
BCF LLP’s Blockchain Technology Group has the team of legal advisors to accompany and counsel any stakeholder in the field of cryptocurrency, be it data center owners and operators, businesses built on a blockchain model or using cryptocurrency to transact, regulatory bodies, energy generators and suppliers, public and para-public research institutions and financial institutions.
We have developed our expertise alongside the clients we serve as well as through our strategic alliances with research centres studying blockchain technology, blockchain auditors, blockchain incubators, leading industry experts and legal counsel in other jurisdictions in North America to assist new and existing companies integrate this technology into their business model. We are presently advising some of the most active blockchain companies in Quebec on a variety of projects ranging from the protection of intellectual property rights, to establishing mining sites, to the development of cryptocurrency custodianship and indices.
