Kobre & Kim Co-Founds Crypto Fraud and Asset Recovery Network North America Chapter in Inaugural Event

September 16, 2022

Cryptocurrency fraud and asset recovery is an increasingly active litigation space – crypto class action lawsuits are up, a number of major crypto platforms have filed for bankruptcy and government regulators and enforcers are investing more resources in this area. As such, Kobre & Kim is proud to co-found the North America chapter of the Crypto Fraud and Asset Recovery Network (CFAAR), an emerging network of industry-leading professionals that aims to develop best practices for dealing with cryptocurrency dispute resolution. In celebration of the chapter’s founding, Kobre & Kim co-hosted the inaugural event on September 15, 2022 at Chainalysis’ Washington DC office.

Kobre & Kim’s Amanda Tuminelli, Evelyn Sheehan and Daniel Saval moderated in-depth panel discussions on issues surrounding insolvency and U.S. securities class actions in the cryptocurrency space, as well as a fireside chat with Beth Bisbee, Head of Investigations of Chainalysis, before ending with a networking event.

Kobre & Kim would like to thank the speakers, Nacif Taousse of Latham & Watkins; Stephen Rutenberg of Polsinelli; Raj Sahni of Bennett Jones; Elliot Greenfield of Debevoise & Plimpton; Douglas Henkin of Dentons; David McGill of Orrick; and Beth Bisbee of Chainalysis. We would also like to thank Maureen Ward of Bennett Jones; Tracy Appleton of Dontzin Nagy; Danielle Haston, Youli Lee and Liana Rizzi of Chainalysis; and Eric Toder, Todd Renner and Jessica de Brignac of FTI.

CFAAR’s North American chapter was founded by Kobre & Kim, Bennett Jones, Chainalysis, Dontzin Nagy, Nagy & Flessing, FTI Consulting, Orrick and Perkins Coie.
