David A. Lopez-Kurtz


David focuses his practice on corporate and securities matters with an emphasis on private and public securities transactions, compliance, and disclosure obligations. He also represents both large and small companies on all aspects of business formation, fundraising, commercial contracts, mergers and acquisitions, and regulatory compliance.

He represents clients in the digital currency and blockchain ecosystem, working as outside general counsel and drawing on the firm’s national platform and comprehensive range of capabilities as he advises on a broad range of matters, including company formation and financing, federal and state securities laws, token fundraising (ICOs and SAFTs), and alternative securities offering options (Reg A+, Reg D/506(c), Reg S, and Equity Crowdfunding). 

When counseling clients, including those navigating issues surrounding and arising from digital currencies and blockchain technology, David maintains focus on building relationships based on trust, communication, and responsiveness.

David leverages his past professional experiences, whether working on the line as a cook and a chef in Cincinnati and New York City or picking salmon out of a net in Alaska as a commercial fisherman, to relate to clients who are working hard to create new and exciting possibilities for themselves and for the industries and markets they participate in.
