Top-Rated Crypto Currency Barrister & Cyber Security Legal Consultant
Dean Armstrong QC is a London, UK-Based barrister and world-authority and author on cryptocurrency. His book, The International Legal and Regulatory Challenges of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency was published in 2019.
Dean first came to public prominence following a highly successful career as a criminal and commercial advocate, having written the first legal text book on Cyber Security in 2017.
Cryptocurrency in a Multi-jurisdiction World
Dean is recognised both by professional colleagues and corporate and national governments as a leading authority in this complex and ever changing area of cyber security and cryptocurrency law. He is the only British lawyer to have contributed to the crafting of proposals for the regulation of virtual assets and his role as a cryptocurrency advisor and lawyer has spanned across diverse cryptocurrency matters – such as the establishment of Cryptocurrency Exchanges across multiple jurisdictions and Security Token Offerings (STO’s)
In Dean’s prior role working for a City of London financial institution and then in his capacity as a top London, UK-based criminal defence barrister, he developed specialist expertise in respect of financial crime and international money laundering issues in particular. This has given Dean a deep appreciation of the legal challenges to those involved in dealing, and arranging deals, in cryptocurrency. As cryptoassets are now regulated by AML , this will bring cryptoassets into a regulated regime for the first time, which only highlights the need for expert legal multi-jurisdiction interpretation of the AML guidelines and their compliance - particularly in relation to cryptoassets.
When you need the legal advice of a top-rated cryptocurrency barrister or a cyber security legal advisor, whether for matters like the paying of ransomware in Bitcoin, or the multitude of other crypto-related matters, or indeed for other cyber security matters like data breach or blockchain, Dean Armstrong QC is your go-to first choice.
