DLT, blockchain and smart contracts: exploring the evolving legal landscape


May 23, 2017

Interest in distributed ledgers, blockchain and smart contracts has grown dramatically over the past 2 years.

With these technologies representing a radical departure from traditional operating models, companies will need to carefully consider the legal implications when moving from research and development to deployment.

We invite to you join our seminar which will explore some of the key legal issues that frequently arise in relation to these technologies, and the challenges and opportunities these present for financial institutions and other industry players.


The seminar will include presentations from members of our global distributed ledger and blockchain team.
