Business Disputes

In the realm of business disputes, especially those involving partnerships, contracts, or financial transactions, cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology introduce a layer of complexity that traditional forensic analysis might not adequately address. The immutable and transparent nature of blockchain can serve as a double-edged sword—offering a clear record of transactions that, on one hand, can prove invaluable in disputes over financial transactions, asset transfers, or breaches of contract, but on the other, may require specialized skills to interpret accurately. A blockchain-forensic expert becomes indispensable in such scenarios.

Consumer Protection

Cryptocurrency-related cybercrime frequently gives rise to consumer protection claims against third parties such as cryptocurrency exchanges and telecommunications companies. Victims allege negligence on the part of these third parties, asserting that their actions or lack thereof facilitated cybercrimes, ultimately resulting in financial losses. On the other hand, cryptocurrency exchanges, wallet providers and telecommunications companies find themselves defending against these allegations by demonstrating that they took all proper precautions and no action they could reasonably have been expected to take would have prevented the incident.

Our experts have served both defendants and plaintiffs in such lawsuits by providing an independent reconstruction of the events and analysis of the causal chain, as well as assessment of the parties’ actual and alternative courses of action, facilitating a fair and just resolution by elucidating the complexities of the individual incident at hand.
