Digital Assets and the DOJ – Law Enforcement Trends in Cryptocurrency from the Perspective of the US Justice Department


As cryptocurrencies and other digital assets gain wider use and acceptance by the public, they increasingly have become the focus of law enforcement attention and investigation.

In this panel discussion, current and former federal prosecutors will discuss topics such as:

  • Law enforcement’s growing understanding of and focus on digital assets
  • The DOJ’s priorities related to digital assets
  • Overcoming the historical skepticism with which federal agents and prosecutors have generally viewed cryptocurrency, digital exchanges and blockchain transactions
  • Potential law enforcement challenges for businesses, lawyers and investors operating in the digital assets space

CLE credit is pending.
