Karmen Turk, Katri Tomson and Maarja Pild, lawyers in the TRINITI Law Firm, represented their client in the European Union’s first ICO case. In the case regarding Santiment ICO (Bloomberg in the crypto world), the parties reached a mutually acceptable compromise. In the event of a dispute, whether and how can the other party be required to transfer the crypto assets (tokens), whether a default interest can be charged for delay (if no money is involved), and what are the bailiff’s tools for enforcing a judgment rendered in a crypto asset dispute – those were some of the topics hotly debated.
TRINITI’s lawyers have also discussed the risks and disputes related to crypto assets and ICOs in the Äripäev Radio broadcast “TRINITI eetris” (TRINITI On Air).
