Sidley is delighted to announce that The National Law Journal named Nathan A. Howell and David E. Teitelbaum “Trailblazers” in its inaugural “Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, Fintech Trailblazers” special supplement.
Nathan, a partner in Sidley’s office in Chicago, was recognized for his “first-of-its-kind financial work” on custodial issues for banks hoping to hold custody for regulated entities, as well as for working with infrastructure providers wanting to deploy blockchain for the settlement space. He was further recognized for his work with offshore financial institutions doing business in the U.S. and seeking to hold custody in an SEC-compliant manner.
Washington, D.C. partner David was recognized for his work with Apple on the development of the stored value and P2P payment service Apple Pay Cash, as well as for working with Tagomi Holdings Inc., a platform designed to function as a broker-dealer for cryptocurrencies. He was also commended for representing PayPal in the multi-billion dollar restructuring of its online point-of-sale financing product, PayPal Credit, with Synchrony Financial.
The inaugural “Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, Fintech Trailblazers” special supplement recognizes individuals who are making “great strides” as finance and technology grow increasingly intertwined. The supplement profiles those who have “truly moved the needle” in facilitating new technologies and digital currencies.
