The Law and Blockchain: Episode 5: Jason Gottlieb on Regulatory Enforcement and Defense

26 Min Listen By: Amy Wan

Blockchain and cryptocurrency-related companies are considered the wild west—they often operate oftentimes in a void of regulatory guidance. Jason Gottlieb talks about the building precedent of regulatory enforcement against blockchain and cryptocurrency companies, and the evolving interpretations of laws relating to token offerings (such as initial coin offerings, initial exchange offerings, and security token offerings).

Jason is a Partner in Morrison Cohen’s Business Litigation Department and Chair of the White Collar and Regulatory Enforcement practice group. His practice focuses on regulatory enforcement, litigation, and arbitration relating to securities, commodities, cryptocurrency, futures and derivatives, and structured finance.

Jason is the principal author of the MoCo Cryptocurrency Litigation Tracker, and was named to the National Law Journal’s inaugural list of 2018 Cryptocurrency, Blockchain and Fintech Trailblazers. He has been widely quoted for his expertise in the media, including CNN, CNBC, Bloomberg Law, Fortune, the National Law Journal, The New York Law Journal, The Real Deal, and many more.

Jason has defended corporate entities, individual officers and directors, and employees in dozens of investigations and enforcement actions conducted by the SEC, CFTC, Department of Justice, New York Attorney General’s Office, FINRA, ICE, CME, NYMEX, Arca, and other governmental and self-regulatory agencies.
