Chloe Bell and Jeremy Scott-Joynt have been invited to be guest speakers at an international forum focusing on cryptocurrency fraud. The event will be held online from 4pm GMT on Monday, 29th November.
The webinar will consider a number of the main issues relating to the rise in crypto-related fraud, including cryptocurrency theft, problems associated with decentralised finance (DeFi) and ransomware attacks. It will also examine the challenges involved in bringing either civil or criminal action in such circumstances.
The event has been organised by information management experts Open Text, Outer Temple Chambers and the Crypto Fraud and Asset Recovery network (CFAAR). CFAAR was founded to help professionals at the forefront of crypto-related disputes develop and share best practice and to ensure the UK is the dispute resolution centre in the world of cryptocurrency.
Other speakers include Dan Wyatt, a partner at RPC; and Syed Rahman from Rahman Ravelli’s.
