Description:  
Regardless of your opinion on cryptocurrency, blockchains, and decentralized applications, there has been rapid growth and mainstream adoption of this space. As a result, your clients (and future clients) are more likely than ever to have a connection to this market. While the underlying technology may be confusing, recent prosecutorial headlines are simply terrifying. You’d have good reason for concern: a quick search of “Bitcoin” on the DOJ’s website returns more than 800 hits related to child trafficking, money laundering, terrorist financing, and other similar results. With the total value of crypto assets continuing to climb over $2 trillion, the government is stepping up enforcement and levying strong penalties against wrongdoers. In this program, you will learn about what type of conduct is catching the attention of prosecutors, how to distinguish illegal activity from a legitimate business, what it all means for your clients going forward.
 
 
Ross Benson is an Associate in McGlinchey’s Consumer Financial Services Compliance practice group. Based in our Birmingham, Alabama office, Ross advises banks, finance companies, online lenders, and private companies in a range of industries on regulatory compliance and general business issues. He also counsels clients on matters related to vendor contracting, payment systems, privacy, and data security.
 
A significant component of Ross’s work involves the preparation of nationwide surveys of compliance requirements for different technologies, business models, and activities. Combining primary and secondary research, Ross will prepare a comprehensive comparative analysis of the applicable regulations in all fifty state jurisdictions. The goal is both to permit the preparation of documents that are effective in every jurisdiction, and to provide the client with an unbiased, clear-eyed basis for analyzing the validity of their planned strategy, product or market entry methodology. By investing time and effort upfront, Ross can often help his clients modify their plans to maximize opportunity and minimize risk.
 
Robert “Bob” N. Driscoll counsels corporations, financial institutions, governmental entities, and individuals in judicial proceedings, government and internal investigations, and criminal and civil cases. A former Deputy Assistant Attorney General and Chief of Staff of the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Bob brings to his practice his substantial governmental and legal experience to advise clients in matters investigated by legislative branch bodies or committees of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, as well as executive branch agencies.
 
Bob advocates for government entities, individuals, and private institutions in civil rights-related litigation and investigations and represents jurisdictions, senior elected officials, and educational institutions targeted by the DOJ. Previously, he was counsel of record and wrote amicus briefs in four civil rights-related matters before the U.S. Supreme Court. Bob also assists corporations, boards of directors, and general committees in answering allegations of wrongdoing raised by whistleblowers or minority shareholders. Bob advises corporate witnesses before relevant bodies, and assists with, and negotiates, subpoenas and other congressional requests for information. Additionally, he conducts internal investigations on behalf of publicly traded and privately held companies and enjoys the mystery-solving aspects of these processes.
 
Representing individuals involved in prominent investigations, Bob is a seasoned and skilled advocate accustomed to handling matters in the public eye. (Former high profile clients include White House Chief of Staff, Deputy Secretary and General Counsel of Cabinet Agencies, White House Director of Personnel Security, U.S. Special Envoy, U.S. Ambassador, and witnesses in the 2016 election investigation by the Department of Justice Special Counsel and the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, among others.) He has personally testified before House and Senate Committees, which enhances his ability to help his clients prepare for their own testimonies and investigations. Bob places a high premium on putting his clients at ease and guiding them through media-coverage barrages.
