Gordon Einstein

Blockchain and Crypto Legal Counsel

Gordon Einstein is a hybrid technologist and licensed attorney. Gordon received his undergraduate degree in Politics in 1991 from Brandeis University in Boston and then received his JD in 1995 from the USC Gould School of Law in Los Angeles. Gordon is also a proud Eagle Scout, having gratefully served in Boy Scout Troop 223.

At the beginning of his law practice, Gordon focused on startup, venture capital, investment banking, regulatory compliance, intellectual property and general business law. As an avid computer and programming hobbyist, in 2012 Gordon was intrigued by Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and all the related technologies. By 2014, he was providing legal services to several individuals and companies operating in this space. And by 2016 the majority of Gordon’s law practice at CryptoLaw Partners involved working with crypto, blockchain and FinTech startups and funds. Gordon frequently speaks and educates both in the United States and aboard, quite often in Ukraine, on cryptocurrency, security, the interaction of law and FinTech, structuring blockchain startups and token transactions, AML and KYC compliance, and other topics.

Gordon’s “spare time” is dedicated towards (very slowly) improving his Russian and German language skills, traveling, free weight strength training, and various recreational programming projects. Rumor has it that Gordon loves caviar (ideally with a chilled beverage), especially when consumed on the shores of the Black Sea in Odessa, Ukraine.
