The event is organized by International Financial Law Review (“IFLR”), in collaboration with Managing Intellectual Property (“MIP”), and will take place on September 27, 2017 at the Sofitel Hotel in New York.
Members of Clifford Chance’s multidisciplinary Fintech group will join an elite group of industry players from the legal and financial fields, along with technologists, regulators, investors and company founders. The group will participate in dynamic discussions on key legal trends, including the OCC Charter on Fintech, the future of RegTech & blockchain, state-by-state licensing regimes, the protection of intellectual property and funding options for start-ups.
