Description
Blockchain, smart contracts, cryptocurrencies, virtual wallets, machine learning and FinTech will be covered from a regulatory perspective. This course will enable both in-house and outside counsel to expand their skills and be more valuable to their clients by covering the why, what, when, where and how of these new technologies, business processes and asset classes. Lawyers who practice in finance, securities, lending, M&A, litigation, anti-financial crimes, compliance, risk, investment management and regulatory areas need to increase their knowledge of these new and rapidly evolving disruptive products and technology to effectively advise new and existing clients.  The panel will discuss ethical issues relating to these new regulations, policies and enforcement initiatives.
