As an attorney at Byrne & Storm, P.C., Preston Byrne advises fledgling technology companies on an array of legal cross-border issues. The former securitization and derivatives lawyer also co-founded Monax Industries (formerly Eris Industries), a company known for building the first permissioned blockchain in 2014.
Preston Byrne's 2019:
2019 was a productive year for Byrne. In February, Byrne & Storm, P.C. was announced — a joint legal practice founded by Byrne and Lawyers Without Borders founder Christina Storm. Later in the year, Bryne was admitted as an attorney-at-law in the state of New York, expanding the scope of his legal practice beyond Connecticut and the U.K.
What Cointelegraph expects for 2020:
We anticipate that Bryne & Storm, P.C. will continue advising a wide range of crypto startups dealing with the cross-jurisdictional complexity of internet-native ventures. Byrne himself will continue providing commentary (not legal advice) on the changing landscape of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
