Launch of Blockchain Legal & Regulatory Guidance

Launch of Blockchain Legal & Regulatory Guidance

 

The Tech London Advocates Blockchain Legal & Regulatory Group have been working for the past year on a report for the Law Society exploring a number of the key legal issues relating to distributed ledger technologies (DLT).

 

Whilst the report is primarily aimed at legal practitioners, it contains a wealth of knowledge and insight from leading legal practitioners and technologists in this space demonstrating not only the practical applications of DLT but also the ability of English law to deal with the many potential legal questions that may arise across data protection, intellectual property, on-chain and off-chain dispute resolution mechanisms and tax.

 

Associate in the IP & Disputes team, Phil Leonard, was closely involved in drafting the report which can be found via the Law Society website here.

 

Our IT & Technology lawyers are able to advise on the contractual framework of DLT projects and data protection questions. Please feel free to get in touch.
