Digital solution will provide legal professionals with authoritative analysis and tools to navigate this fast moving legal and regulatory environment
(New York, NY) – Amid increased interest and usage of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced the launch of the Blockchain & Virtual Currencies Dashboard. Powered by Wolters Kluwer’s market-leading content, the solution will provide legal professionals with valuable sources and tools to track developments and regulation in this rapidly developing field.
With deep domain expertise in banking, finance and securities, Wolters Kluwer is uniquely positioned to offer this authoritative digital resource on one of the financial industry’s most quickly moving and evolving regulatory practice areas. Law firms, financial services providers, corporations and government entities can leverage the solution to access highly valued content such as U.S. and international law firm memos, analysis of key related topics, news, links to applicable primary source material, and up-to-date commentary from Wolters Kluwer’s leading legal analysts.
“Financial services applications for virtual currencies are developing extremely rapidly while continuing to exhibit significant volatility, but securities and derivatives regulators have issued only limited guidance thus far,” said Dean Sonderegger, Vice President and General Manager of Legal Markets and Innovation at Wolters Kluwer. “At this stage, it is difficult for securities practitioners to confidently advise clients and avoid potential gatekeeper liability themselves. As usage and visibility of virtual currencies continue to increase, the dashboard will help legal professionals stay on top of the latest regulatory developments in this arena.”
The Blockchain & Virtual Currencies Dashboard will include the following:
- Hundreds of law firm circulars searchable by key word or country;
- Briefs, analysis and commentary authored by Wolters Kluwer’s authoritative experts and authors, including Wolters Kluwer’s recently published title “Blockchain, Virtual Currencies and ICOs: Navigating the Legal Landscape”;
- Background on regulations and regulators that have or are expected to have influence in this area, both in the U.S. and internationally;
- Official source documents, consisting of currently available regulations and issuances on the topic area, such as the Uniform Regulation of Virtual-Currency Businesses Act;
