Hatstone Lawyers becomes first Jersey law firm to accept Bitcoin payments

Hatstone Lawyers is excited to announce that we now accept payment for legal advice in Bitcoin.

Partner Carl O’Shea explains:

“Our decision to accept Bitcoin shows our commitment to the growing digital economy. The real advantage will be to our international clients due to the fact that Bitcoin trading fees are much lower than international bank transfer fees. With more and more entrepreneurs setting up Bitcoin related businesses, we are seeking to provide greater flexibility to our clients who can choose to pay us using whichever currency is most convenient to them.”
