Lowenstein Sandler has announced that Bryan I. Reyhani has joined the firm as partner in its Investment Management and Lowenstein Crypto groups. He will be based in the firm’s New York City office, and will apply his diverse background as lawyer, entrepreneur, board member and advisor, and management strategist to advising financial services, technology, and other clients on complex regulatory matters.
Ethan L. Silver, Chair of the firm’s Broker-Dealer and FinTech practices and Co-Chair of Lowenstein Crypto says: “Bryan is well known as a seasoned advocate and founder in the crypto industry. He led the first federal private crypto litigation in the United States in 2013 in the S.D.N.Y and in Bankruptcy Court, and he also co-founded a venture-capital backed crypto financial services business. The perspective he has gained from these diverse experiences make him uniquely qualified to counsel clients involved in this rapidly evolving industry.”
For over two decades, Reyhani has represented Fortune 500 companies, start-up and growth stage businesses, family offices, and individuals in sophisticated regulatory and capital markets matters. An alumnus of Merrill Lynch and a former partner at Loeb & Loeb, his experience spans both traditional and disruptive industries such as cannabis, esports, gaming, data, and crypto. Since the inception of the crypto asset class, he has advised institutional investors and traditional businesses worldwide on crypto-related strategies, technological opportunities, and risk mitigation.
Reyhani has also represented national and regional financial services firms and investment advisers facing regulatory and enforcement proceedings before the SEC, FINRA, and other state and federal agencies and dispute resolution forums, on issues involving securities fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and assorted complex financial instruments, as well as risk mitigation/regulatory preparedness, compliance, and employment related matters. In addition, he has significant experience with the U.S. and Canadian capital markets, up-listings to the U.S., capital-raising opportunities, and various M&A transactions.
Robert G. Minion, Chair of Lowenstein’s Investment Management group, says: “Bryan’s entrepreneurial spirit and keen understanding of the practical realities at the intersection of law and business are reflected throughout his career experiences, including launching a boutique law firm, a crypto start-up, and a management consulting and advisory business, as well as serving as a partner at a leading national law firm.”
“Lowenstein’s entrepreneurial and cross disciplinary culture is a perfect match for my eclectic background and diverse interests,” says Reyhani. “I look forward to working with my new Lowenstein partners across a wide range of practice areas as we help entrepreneurs develop dynamic new products while complying with a constantly changing regulatory landscape.”
