Cryptoassets and Smart Contracts
On Monday (18th November) the Government’s UK Jurisdiction Taskforce published its ‘Legal Statement on Cryptoassets and Smart Contracts’. This ground-breaking initiative is intended to provide clarity on a number of legal issues which can arise as the result of the increasing use of cryptoassets (such as cryptocurrencies) and smart contracts. The UK is taking a markedly different legal and regulatory approach to these technological innovations and the Legal Statement is an important development. The seminar will walk you through the Legal Statement, explore some of its conclusions and will also put in the Legal Statement in context by reference to recent global case law.
The seminar follows on from the hugely successful series of seminars previously run by Christopher Lundie and George Hilton in the UK and the Middle East on cryptocurrencies which explored some of the issues now addressed by the Legal Statement.
If you need to ‘future proof’ your legal practice, this seminar is one which should not be missed.
We would be delighted if you could join us. We will start promptly at 6pm. The seminar will last about 1 hour and will be followed by drinks and canapés at 7pm.
This is a free event which qualifies for 1.5 CPD hours.
