Focus on the ever-expanding world of digital assets

Welcome to Russell-Cooke's digital assets hub, an online resource for our insights and updates on digital assets.

This is a complex area which touches on many aspects of our lives, yet it is poorly understood or defined.

At its widest, "Digital assets" is a term that covers all things digital, including the mundane such as email accounts, social media accounts and online photos.

However it is also a maturing asset category, which includes cryptoassets such as Bitcoin, and NFTs (non-fungible tokens). The dynamic nature of developments in this area is regularly producing new issues of law and legal practice for solicitors and their clients to grapple with.

Whilst many of these can and are being resolved within the existing framework of English law, there is a real possibility that the rapid development and increasing sophistication of digital assets over a relatively short period of time will lead to far more fundamental changes.
