Specializing in Arbitrations against Coinbase

  • We have a successful practice representing Coinbase account holders, whose cryptocurrency assets--Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and more--have been stolen from their accounts due to Coinbase negligence.  Some of these clients had large amounts of crypto stolen, ranging from crypto worth several hundred thousand to several million dollars.
  • Over the past three years, we have recovered 100 percent of the value of the cryptocurrency as of the date of the theft; an amount in excess of $5 million. 
  • Recently, the New York bank regulators fined Coinbase $100 million for failing to operate in a safe and sound manner.
  • We work with one of the very best cyber security experts in the United States, Joseph Steinberg, who serves as an expert witness in our cases.
