A&O’s London office will host a client breakfast briefing on ‘ICOs: all hype or the future of capital raisings?’ on Friday 17 November 2017.

More than USD2 billion has been reportedly raised by way of initial coin offerings in recent months, highlighting a new trend in using blockchain technology for companies to access funding for product development or fundraising. But the swift rise of ICOs has unsurprisingly led to a flurry of bans, enforcement actions and commentary from regulators around the globe since the summer. This seminar will focus on the recent regulatory interventions, consider the key legal and regulatory issues relating to token issuances and look to how the market for ICOs will respond and mature over the coming months and years.

The seminar will be led by Simon Toms and Michael Bloch.
