November 29, 2018

2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. (ET)

Blockchain technology is dominating news headlines as it is beginning to change the way corporations operate across the world, in much the same way the Internet did. Join Sheppard Mullin attorneys Jim Gatto and Richard Friedman for an informative webinar program on this emerging technology. The goal of this webinar is to help you understand the basics of blockchain technology, the business opportunities it provides and the various legal and regulatory challenges it poses.

The speakers will discuss various components and advantages of blockchain platforms, including the use of tokens, digital currencies and smart contracts, as well as the benefits of implementing blockchain technology in business operations, such as supply chain logistics. The speakers will also provide examples of real world use cases to demonstrate the applicability of blockchain in nearly every industry and explain the legal and other regulatory issues relating to the proposed issuance and/or sale of digital securities, smart contracts, intellectual property and privacy and other legal issues.
