Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP announces the launch of the Blockchain Legal Resource blog featuring insights from firm lawyers on the most notable legal and regulatory developments in the blockchain space. In addition to regular updates on security tokens and cryptocurrencies, the blog also discusses the impact of blockchain technology on industries like retail, technology, health care, financial services and many others.

“Our goal is to provide insights into helping lawyers and their clients stay abreast of cutting-edge developments in blockchain technology,” says Scott Kimpel, partner in the firm’s Washington DC office and co-chair of the firm’s blockchain working group. “We also want our clients to be aware of the impact these developments will have on their business, and this legal resource blog is the perfect platform for that.”

The forward-thinking lawyers that make up the blockchain technology working group at Hunton Andrews Kurth advise companies on all aspects of the use of blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies, including smart contracts and digital currency. The multidisciplinary team draws on the experience of attorneys in capital markets, structured finance, insurance, M&A, financial restructuring, privacy and cybersecurity, real estate and intellectual property practices.
