Calvin Koo Discusses Arbitrations Involving Cryptocurrency and NFTs

November 2, 2021

As digital assets – particularly cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) – have proliferated as an alternative asset class, it is inevitable that they will become the center of arbitration disputes. Kobre & Kim’s Calvin Koo, who focuses on enforcement and tracing of digital assets, will discuss what this means for arbitration practitioners during a virtual panel at the Young Singapore International Arbitration Centre (YSIAC) Conference 2021 on 4:00 pm Hong Kong time, November 10, 2021.

The session, “Cryptocurrency, Blockchain and NFTs (“CBNFT”) – what do they mean for arbitration practitioners?”, will consider trends in CBNFT disputes, particular issues to look out for in CBNFT disputes and enforcement of awards against cryptocurrencies and NFTs. Mr. Koo will be joined by moderator and YSIAC Committee Co-Chair Wendy Lin of Wong Partnership LLP and fellow panelists Rakesh Kirpalani of Drew & Napier, Andy Meehan of Gemini and Matthew McGhee of Twenty Essex.
