The event will first feature a networking portion with various technology companies and law firms representing themselves as part of this growing community. Then there will be a panel featuring recognized thought leaders for a discussion on the types of challenges that existing legal frameworks are facing with introduction of blockchain and the types of issues on the horizon. The event will conclude with a keynote presentation from Sheppard Mullin’s Jim Gatto, a legal expert in blockchain, who will provide a macro perspective on crytptocurrency, blockchain, and the possible legal solutions they may enable.
