Blockchain Technology

Embracing distributed ledger technology.

Recognizing the tremendous impact that distributed ledger technologies will have on businesses and governments, DRM’s blockchain lawyers are poised to assist with their adoption and implementation. Distributed ledger technologies will be adapted in most industry sectors as a means of improving reliability, efficiency and trustworthiness. Government units will also find applications that create efficiencies and reduce cost. DRM’s blockchain lawyers are able to assist businesses in navigating the legal, intellectual property and regulatory challenges that companies face in seeking to employ distributed ledger technologies.

Our lawyers have advised a number of clients on issues involving the use of blockchain technology, and consulted with interested clients on how distributed ledger technologies might be useful in their businesses. Our team was also actively involved in the legislative initiatives to promote the use of blockchain technology in the State of Vermont, including the development of an innovative bill that allows companies to form blockchain-based limited liability companies.
