Webinar | Navigating Cross-Border Insolvencies Involving Cryptocurrency

Date:24 May 2022
Time: 02:00 PM
Town: Online

Dear TMA-SA Member

The global rise of cryptocurrency over the past several years has inevitably given way to the concordant rise of cross-border insolvencies of crypto exchanges and trading platforms – presenting a unique set of challenges to a wide array of stakeholders, from bankruptcy trustees and liquidators of the exchanges to victims of hacking and/or fraud seeking to track down and recover their stolen assets. However, asset recovery campaigns of digital assets in the midst of contentious global insolvencies take on different forms depending on the jurisdictions involved. To make matters even more complicated, bankruptcy estates increasingly find themselves having to compete with aggressive government regulators such as the U.S. Department of Justice when it comes to tracking down and collecting stolen assets.

During this webinar, members of cross-border disputes and investigations firm Kobre & Kim will discuss key aspects that insolvency office holders, creditors and other stakeholders should consider as they evaluate the legal implications and strategic considerations of recovering crypto assets against the backdrop of a complex, cross-border insolvencies, including:
