SAN FRANCISCO, CA – January 10, 2014.   Joseph & Cohen, Professional Corporation, a San Francisco based law firm, announced today that the firm is now accepting Bitcoin as a legal services payment option for approved clients. The addition of this payment option coincides with the firm’s core focus on banking and financial services and supporting clients in connection with complex issues in the financial sector.

Jonathan Joseph, Joseph & Cohen’s Managing Partner states, “With the bitcoin economy continuing to evolve into a potentially significant payment and financial tool, we have decided to accept Bitcoins (BTC) as payment for legal services.”

Clients interested in paying for legal services with Bitcoin will be pre-approved by the Firm in much the way a Bank underwrites new customers.  Mr. Joseph noted, “While we know that many banks are wary of bitcoin businesses, given our core expertise with money transmission, banking and venture capital, we are comfortable with the decision. We look forward to working with digital currency entrepreneurs and VC’s in connection with private equity investments and state and federal legal and compliance issues.”
