CLE Program Addresses How Crypto Companies Can Avoid DOJ Scrutiny

November 17, 2021

Elizabeth Davis, Joseph Facciponti, Steven Feldman, and Robertson Park of the firm’s White Collar Defense, Investigations & Compliance Counseling Practice will lead a CLE event, "Prosecutors Target Crypto: Explaining the DOJ’s National Cryptocurrency Enforcement Team," on Tuesday, November 30 at 12:30 pm ET. This program will be held virtually and offers 1.5 CLE credits.

With the announcement of the formation of the Department of Justice’s National Cryptocurrency Enforcement Team (NCET), many players in the blockchain space are searching for legal guidance on what steps they should take to avoid prosecutorial scrutiny. The NCET will "tackle complex investigations and prosecutions of criminal misuses of cryptocurrency, particularly crimes committed by virtual currency exchanges, mixing and tumbling services, and money laundering infrastructure actors," according to the DOJ press release.  

Crypto companies and exchanges can expect a ramp-up in DOJ investigations, including a sweep of the industry, both domestically and internationally. This program will highlight this new federal initiative, discuss the risks the NCET poses to the industry, and address strategies crypto companies and exchanges can utilize to minimize the risk of becoming the next target, and persevere in this time of intense focus on the industry.
