Please join us for the second in a series of programs focused on 2019 blockchain developments. Investor interest in blockchain token offerings has increased exponentially; market volatility is rising. Federal and state laws lack clarity, but regulators are commencing investigations and bringing enforcement actions. In parallel, the courts have pending cases that may set precedents for years to come. Conditions are ripe for a wave of securities fraud and class action lawsuits tied to blockchain projects and token offerings.
Lawyers from Sidley's Blockchain, Securities Enforcement and Securities Litigation practices will share their in-depth experience and perspectives regarding:
- Recent blockchain regulatory guidance, enforcement actions and class actions and their implications for your business
- Risk management to avoid being targeted by the regulators or disgruntled investors – with a sidebar on “parallel proceedings”
- Minimizing the chance of negative enforcement or litigation outcomes through preparation
Lilya Tessler, Partner, New York Head of the Blockchain and Fintech Group
Barry Rashkover, Partner, Co-Leader of the Securities and Derivatives Enforcement and Regulatory Group
Kristen Seeger, Partner, Deputy Head of the Chicago Litigation Group
