Aaron Krowne is an attorney who arrived at the practice of law following a career in computing and technology, where he worked as a research data scientist. He founded a series of online startup ventures, several of which attained global recognition. His pre-law career also includes establishing multiple online libel law precedents, as well as participating in the early development of the Creative Commons IP license system.
He now brings this experience to his practice of law at Krowne Law and International Blockchain Legal, with a focus on blockchain, startups and small to medium-sized enterprises. He was one of the first lawyers globally to focus on blockchain, having initially familiarized himself with Bitcoin and its underlying technology in its early days (2009-2010). Today, he advises a diverse array of blockchain and “crypto” companies, covering areas ranging from money services and AML law to NFTs, and works at the forefront of the professionalization and expansion of the rapidly-growing cryptocurrency finance and “DeFi” space.
Aaron also has a full legal academy background in intellectual property law. Beyond crypto, he enjoys assisting emerging enterprises of all types in obtaining the vital financing they need and in overcoming their regulatory and business legal challenges.
