Former New York Congressman Joe Crowley is representing Bullish US LLC, the technology company that operates the regulated cryptocurrency trading platform Bullish exchange.

In his role as senior policy director at Dentons US, the 10-term Congressman handles financial services and cryptocurrency policy matters for Arlington, VA-based company that has about 400 employees.

Bullish is in the process of merging with Far Peak Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company.

The companies have extended the deadline to complete the deal from July 8 to Dec. 31.

Crowley was the fourth-highest-ranking Congressional Democrat when he was defeated in the 2018 primary by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Matthew Cutts, Dentons' head of US policy and government relations; Callie Fuselier, former aide to Democratic Senators John Breaux and Harry Reid; and Pat Kirby, who worked in the Treasury Dept.’s financial crimes enforcement unit focused on cryptocurrencies, also serve on the Bullish team.
