First Canadian Law Firm Accepting Bitcoin
In another breakthrough for Bitcoin, Wildeboer Dellelce is the first corporate finance Canadian law firm to accept cryptocurrencies for legal bills. The precedent will encourage competitors, particularly legal teams who are working with entrepreneurs, to investigate Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin as well as other cryptocurrencies as a method payment.
One of Canada’s premier transactional business law firms and a partner of choice for entrepreneurs and leaders driven to grow or transform businesses, the Toronto-based Wildeboer Dellelce will start accepting cryptocurrencies on its 25th anniversary, February 1st.
It will allow clients to “pay 25 per cent of their outstanding legal bills in such currencies up to a maximum of CAD$25,000 per month.”
“Given the rapid growth of our blockchain and digital currency practice and our long history of innovation and firsts in providing legal services to the technology sector in Canada, moving to accept digital currency towards payment of its legal fees is a natural progression for our firm,” stated Perry Dellelce, Managing Partner.
