Cryptocurrencies, Blockchain, and ICOs: What Securities Litigation Lawyers Need To Know
Cryptocurrency, blockchain, and ICOs –these terms are frequently tossed around in conversations, but what do they actually mean? This CLE presentation will provide securities litigators a user-friendly introduction on cryptocurrency, blockchain technology and initial coin offerings (ICOs).
The focus of our presentation will be on the recent rise of cryptocurrency securities lawsuits, which increased threefold in the first two quarters of 2018 compared to all of 2017, and the impact they are having on the legal industry. Our presentation will include a basic overview of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, a discussion of recent cryptocurrency securities lawsuits, and a forecast for the coming year on cutting edge legal issues in this under-regulated field.
This presentation will be conducted by Carly Kessler and Chelsea Walcker, business litigation associates at Robins Kaplan LLP in New York City.
