Bitgo Reacts to Galaxy Digital’s Statements, Company’s Attorney Says Galaxy’s Attempt to ‘Blame the Termination on Bitgo Is Absurd’
After the announcement Galaxy Digital made on Monday, concerning the terminated acquisition of Bitgo, the Palo Alto, California-based crypto financial servicesütlesGalaxy was “legally responsible for its improper decision to terminate the merger.” Bitgo details that it has hired the Los Angeles-based litigation firmQuinn Emanuel“to take appropriate legal action.”
Quinn Emanuel is one of the world’s top-ranking global white shoe law firms with roughly 23 offices located in a myriad of countries. After Galaxy’s press release had published, R. Brian Timmons, a partner with Quinn Emanuel, spoke about the issues between both companies.
“The attempt by Mike Novogratz and Galaxy Digital to blame the termination on Bitgo is absurd,” Timmons wrote in a statement. “Bitgo has honored its obligations thus far, including the delivery of its audited financials. It is public knowledge that Galaxy reported a $550 million loss this past quarter, that its stock is performing poorly, and that both Galaxy and Mr. Novogratz have been distracted by the Luna fiasco. Either Galaxy owes Bitgo a $100 million termination fee as promised or it has been acting in bad faith and faces damages of that much or more.”
