Blockchain & Law

An afternoon with the global legal and academic experts

About the event

Distributed ledger technologies have gained even greater traction since we held last year’s Blockchain and Law event. The business community is rapidly recognising that blockchain goes way beyond cryptocurrencies. Many are predicting that before long, smart contracts will have transformed interactions between the different economic players in ecosystems – in fact the entire way we do business.

The whole way we do law will change as well. Indeed it’s already happening around us. Not only are new technologies and processes demanding new legal responses; the very technology is changing the way lawyers go about their work. PwC and Trust Square have organised this year’s Blockchain and Law event to keep you ahead of these rapid developments. 

Once again the thought-provoking afternoon will feature some of the leading minds in blockchain, including Prof. Dr. Philipp Sandner, Head of the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center and Marina Niforos, Logos Global Advisors and Member EU Blockchain Observatory as well as PwC’s legal, financial services and digital experts Dr. Günther Dobrauz, Tina Balzli, Priit Lätt and Frederik Gregaard.

We hope you’ll join us to further cement our trailblazing legal and blockchain community at Trust Square in Zurich on Wednesday, 19 February.
