As the cryptocurrency market has developed explosively over the past decade, the legal community has been facing various challenges. Particularly, as a result of the sudden collapse of FTX, the legal community now faces various unprecedented legal issues associated with the cryptocurrency market. This webinar will help you navigate those issues and help you protect your clients from the ongoing FTX case.

Howard Fischer of Moses Singer, a former senior trial counsel at the SEC will discuss the SEC and criminal cases involving FTX and outline what they mean for the future of crypto exchanges, especially in light of the recent enforcement actions relating to Binance and CoinBase.
Piotr Wojtowicz of Allegra Law, f/k/a Heuking Kuhn Luer Wojtek Switzerland, will discuss how the EU’s MiCA and Swiss DLT frameworks focus on a “before the fact” regulation, creating a favorable environment for innovation, and introducing comprehensive regulations, in lieu of the “after the fact” enforcement of the SEC acting against the backdrop of a fragmented regulatory landscape with multiple agencies overseeing different aspects of crypto-assets. He will also discuss the FTX case from a Swiss FTX subsidiary’s perspective.
