Ariel E. Givner, Esq.
Ariel is of counsel to BorgerMatez, P.A. and works part-time assisting our attorneys in all aspects of representation. She previously worked as a Law Clerk for the firm while in Law School.
Currently, Ariel operates her own practice aside from the work she is doing for BorgerMatez, P.A. In her solo practice she concentrates on intellectual property, fintech, and related business issues confronting companies and individuals in numerous industries. Ariel started her practice because she wanted to serve a very specific type of client – a client that was passionate about an idea or a product or a service, and seeks a more personalized and affordable legal experience than can typically be found in “big law”, without sacrificing quality of service.
Prior to opening her own firm, Ariel was an associate editor at thefashionlaw.com, clerked for the presiding civil judge in Ocean County, served as in-house counsel for a private equity startup, and practiced as an associate attorney for a private practice law firm. She is experienced in dispute negotiations, mergers & acquisitions, has participated in multiple settlement conferences, led a start- up company through its first year of existence, and has attended numerous mediations and arbitrations.
While simultaneously honing her legal skills, Ariel discovered Bitcoin in 2020 and became, what some would call, obsessed. Ariel has since become a recognized trader and legal mind in the online cryptocurrency community by immersing herself in the world of crypto trading, blockchains, NFTs, legitimate and scam crypto coins, and bitcoin mining. After being contacted by a dozen crypto investors for legal help, Ariel recognized a lack of legal clarity in the cryptocurrency world that often leads to scam coins, “rug-pulls,” and failed projects. Because of this, she combined her hobby and her legal skills to help pave the way in the quickly developing cryptocurrency legal world.
Ariel comes from a family with over 30 years of small business ownership and experience all across the United States. From a very young age, she saw her parents build a very successful small company from the ground up, and quickly learned what it took to make a small business excel. Ariel uses this experience to provide high quality legal services to clients that are looking to bring their business to life.
