Considering an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) requires expert legal strategy due to the dynamic nature of applicable laws, including, securities, taxation, corporate structure and agreements. An ICO is also considered as a Token Generation Event (TGE), which refers to a novel way to raise capital by issuing crypto tokens. Companies issuing tokens or coins via ICO generally structure the offering in a manner such that the tokens or coins are linked to a smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain or similar platform.

ICO Blockchain Attorney Lawyer Law Firm Consultant

In essence, the tokens or the coins are issued as a right to use the technology that is being funded by the ICO. It would be apt to compare an ICO with an Initial Public Offering (IPO), wherein shares of a company are issued to the investors. It is a common belief that tokens or coins issued by way of ICO are equivalent of securities, whereas mostly they are different from securities, and hence, it is important for companies to highlight such difference to their investors and token buyers. Since the tokens or coins do not represent equity shares of the company, issuing these during ICO shall not affect or dilute the equity of the founders.

ICO Structuring – Blockchain Law

A crucial strategy to structure ICO involves having separate legal entities to issue the tokens or coins and to operate the business. This can ensure minimum legal liabilities and further allow the founders to have flexibility to opt for desired legal structures for both the entities. For example, ICO can be executed using a trust or a foundation, whereas operating entity can be a private limited company capable of issuing equity shares to the founders and investors. In addition, it may be more advantageous to incorporate both the entities in different jurisdictions to avail the advantages of local laws and regulations. For example, ICO operating entity can be incorporated in any of the jurisdiction selected from, Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Isle of Man etc.

Blockchain and ICO – Role of Lawyers

Legal aspects of Blockchain and ICO are crucial for business consideration due the dynamically changing nature of this field. Beginning from ICO legal opinions to ICO structuring, to legal entity incorporation, and further including international legal compliance, ICO lawyers and Blockchain attorneys always work on the edge to assist their clients.

Technology lawyers and law firms that are required to review legal aspects of Blockchain and ICO focus primarily on laws applicable to a business that is on the verge of implementing a Blockchain technology for business operations. This legal analysis also includes determining the best jurisdiction to incorporate legal entity, obtain the required licenses and permits, ensure local and international legal compliance (KYC and AML compliance) etc.

For issuance of coins or tokens during the ICO, lawyers assist clients by reviewing and auditing the ICO legal structure, application of the Howey Test, Family Resemblance Test, Risk Capital Test etc. Additional services include review and audit of the ICO White Paper to ensure compliance with domestic and international laws.

Global Blockchain Lawyers are also required to draft legal documents (agreements and contracts) for the sale of ICO tokens and coins, including website terms, privacy policy, terms of use, ICO Private Placement Offering Document, pre-Crowd Token Offer (Pre ICO), Crowd Token Offer Agreement (ICO), in addition to writing ICO legal opinion letters.

Startup deals across various business and technology sectors are exposed to legal and regulatory landscape at various levels. Venture capital is constantly powering private equity investments through venture funding by VC firms and angel investments by angel investors.

startup business corporate lawyer attorney india gurgaon delhi

Indian government under the leadership of PM Modi has announced Startup India Action Plan and Policy, which includes multiple tax incentives, RBI incentives, incentives for ease of doing business in India, Intellectual Property Rights Incentives to file patents and trademarks via IP Facilitators etc.

Originally published here.

A crucial step for startup includes incorporation of the legal entity in India for doing business. Structuring of a startup business can follow different models, including, global business led by intellectual property, investments by promoters outside India, conducting business using offshore company in India, etc.

Most preferred legal entity for doing business in India is a private limited company, which can be incorporated under the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013. Startups can select between a private company that requires at least two directors or a one person company (OPC), which requires one director. Once a company is incorporated, post incorporation steps are required as guided by a chartered accountant (CA) and a corporate lawyer.

If business includes providing services to consumers, limited liability partnership (LLP) can be incorporated having two or more partners, who can be individuals or corporate entities.

While doing business, startup needs to execute various legal agreements and contracts, including, confidentiality & non-disclosure agreement (NDA), offer letter, employment agreements, non-competition agreements, non-solicitation agreements, intellectual property (IP) assignment agreements, employee stock options (ESOPs) plans, investment agreements, shareholder agreements, founders agreement, term sheet, and advisor agreements.

For startups conducting online business using internet, websites and mobile apps, additional measures are required for risk management, including IT Act Compliance, Content Regulation, Online Payment Gateways etc.

Startups leveraging intellectual property can secure corresponding IP rights (IPR) by way of filing patents, trademarks, copyrights and industrial designs in India and abroad under various mechanisms as allowed by WIPO, such as, the patent cooperation treaty (PCT), Madrid Protocol etc.

Lawyers with expertise in corporate law keep a track of startup developments worldwide along with niche across different technology sectors, including, but not limited to, Enterprise Infrastructure, Enterprise Applications, Internet of Things (IoT), Wearable Technology, Smart Homes, Smart Cars, Smart Cities, Semiconductors, 3D Printing, Consumer Robotics, Industrial Robotics, Drones, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Space Technology, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Advanced Materials, Chatbots, Display Technology, Marketplaces, Hyperlocal Delivery startups, Food Tech, Auto Tech, Online Travel, Logistics tech, Real Estate Tech, Online Retail, eCommerce, Online Grocery, Mobile Commerce, FinTech (Financial Technology), Mobile Communication, Online Dating, Matchmaking, Sports Tech, Wedding Tech, Mobile Gaming, Fashion Tech, Mobile Apps, Social Networking, Social Platforms, Big Data, Mobile Payments, Mobile Advertising, Payments, Crowdfunding, Bitcoin, Finance & Accounting, AdTech, HealthTech, Mobile Health, Telemedicine, Fitness & Wellness, Healthcare Information Technology (IT), Healthcare Analytics, Biotech, Pharma, Life Sciences, Medical Devices, Energy, CleanTech, Telecom and SaaS (Software as a Service).

Talk to any working professional who has worked for 5 years or more seeking career advice, and majority will give you a common answer about how they committed blunders during their early stages, or how they focused too much on resume and ignored the skills, or how they lost a chance to secure their dream job.
No matter what subjects we study, everyone has a dream job and a life goal somewhere lost between daily nuances of college life. What we miss during college days is a blueprint or master plan to ensure that our acts are in sync with our dream job and life goals.

List Down Your Interests

A common issue faced by many students is finding answer to a question that bothers them throughout their college journey:

“How to find a dream job?”

To find answer to this question, we seek guidance of anyone and everyone we know. But we miss one crucial point, no one can help us find our dream job unless we know what exactly our dream job is.

Do we ever make a list of 10 things we want to do after college?

Do we ever make a list of our interests?

Do we list down 20 companies we want to work for?

No, most of us don’t do this.

Well, in a perfect world, we should answer questions like these before pursuing our job search.

law school campus students job placement internship training program

There’s a movie starring Tom Cruise, Jack Reacher (2012), which has a scene wherein Tom’s character talks about people and life by saying:

“Look at the people. You tell me which ones are free. Free from debt. Anxiety. Stress. Fear. Failure. Indignity. Betrayal. How many wish that they were born knowing what they know now? Ask yourself how many would do things the same way over again, and how many would live their lives like me.”

Time teaches us everything and during various stages of life, we become mature enough to find our mistakes from the past.

So what’s the way out? How to ensure we don’t make any mistake that can derail our career? Well, we don’t live in a perfect world and mistakes are bound to happen. Making mistakes and learning from them is the only way to graduate in real life.

Focus on Skills

We treat dissertations, projects and internships as a part and parcel of our course syllabus. However, these are hidden gems that can add significant value to our career path. After making a list of our interests, dream companies to work for, things to do after college; we should try to focus on skills that are required to achieve these goals.

For example, if our dream company is Apple, we should focus on its core aspect like reasons to fall in love with every apple device, which is mainly because of its dazzling design and intuitive user-interface. Search about people working in Apple’s design team, read about their work experience, interviews and so on. This way we can list the necessary skill set that can help us achieve our professional goals.

One key thing to note is that the skills will be different from our college curriculum.

This does not always mean that what we learn during college will not help. It is important to understand that academics provide a strong platform to pursue industry skills. Therefore, one should always ensure that academics and skills go hand in hand to achieve success in life.

If you are looking for some motivation, read about founders of companies like Microsoft, Facebook, Dell and Google. All of them started working towards achieving their life goals early in college and see how they are positioned today.

One small piece of advice:

Dropping out of college sounds really cool, only if it’s Harvard

Make the most out of your college journey and don’t focus on resume much, because if you can blend academics with skills, resume will take care of itself, but not vice versa. All the best.
