iLaw lends blockchain expertise to international conference

iLaw was recently asked to share its specialist knowledge of legal issues relating to blockchain investments, at an international conference hosted in London.

Tom Clark, a Director at iLaw was invited to address delegates at the 8th Annual OffshoreAlert Conference Europe, at a session entitled ‘Busting the Blockchain: How to Trace & Seize Virtual Assets & Evaluate Risk in a Pseudo-Anonymous World’?

More than 250 investigators, providers, and buyers of high-value, cross-border financial products and services, as well as regulators, law enforcement and journalists attended the event to discuss key offshore issues.

The exclusive two-day industry event took place at the Leonardo Royal Hotel London St Paul’s on 11 – 12 November 2019.

Tom was joined by fellow solicitors Warren Gluck and Joe Dewey of Holland & Knight to look at some of the key implication of blockchain and its impact on investments.

Speaking about his attendance at the conference, Tom said: “It was a real honour to be asked to take part in the conference this year and to speak to delegates about an area that is of growing interest to many.

“We are carving out a niche in the UK as a go-to firm for the latest issues to be emerging from various markets, including the blockchain and cryptocurrency sectors.”
