The emergence of cryptocurrencies continues to transform the market through digital distributed ledger transactions. However, the current crypto market crash forced several cryptocurrency trading platforms to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Thus, leaving uncertainties and a myriad of issues and challenges to the already highly volatile crypto market.

Emerging decisions from the bankruptcy court are expected to shape the future security of crypto assets. This underscores the need for crypto owners to stay current with the emerging developments surrounding the crypto market to mitigate further pitfalls.

In this CLE Webcast, The Knowledge Group presents experienced finance lawyer James M. Sullivan (Windels Marx Lane & Mittendorf, LLP) and business restructuring and reorganization practitioner Matthew J. Gold (Kleinberg, Kaplan, Wolff & Cohen, P.C.) for an insightful discussion of the most significant and relevant issues surrounding cryptocurrencies and chapter 11 bankruptcy. The distinguished speakers will also share actionable tips for minimizing risks amid the rapidly evolving crypto climate.

Key topics that will be covered in this discussion are:

  • Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Filings
  • Critical Bankruptcy Processes Involving Cryptocurrency
