ClearToken x Fuse

ClearToken x A&O Shearman Fuse



We are very pleased to announce that ClearToken has been awarded a place to participate in this year’s A&O Shearman Fuse incubator. Fuse is a highly competitive innovation incubator specialising in LegalTech and digital assets. ClearToken is proud to have been selected for the final 10 from 80 key client nominations for the digital assets stream.

Growth of digital assets that will drive the future for finance is not just about new technology and cryptocurrencies; realizing potential depends upon the legal and regulatory structures that must evolve to support and legitimise new opportunities. Hence, ClearToken’s relocation to the Fuse space at A&O Shearman’s London headquarters at Spitalfields means it is perfectly placed to benefit from the support that Fuse provides. Equally, we look forward to a deep knowledge exchange about digital assets with A&O Shearman’s lawyers and clients in support of our common goal of influencing this quickly evolving space.
