The Ethics of Networking both Online and Off: Building your Book of Business One Relationship at a Time (12/04/2019)

Program Number: 29167 Presenter: Jaimie B. Field, Esq.

Traditionally, networking was considered going to networking events where loads of people were just handing out business cards. And to many lawyers, they would rather have a root canal than attend one of those! That is an outmoded definition of networking that this program endeavors to destroy. Networking is about creating relationships. And, while we will discuss some best practices of attending networking events, we will also discuss networking online on social networking sites as well. Regardless of whether you are networking in person or networking virtually, these activities are fraught with potential to violate almost all of the ethics rules. For example, during in person networking and while networking online, while conversing with others, you could hypothetically breach the following rules: • Rule 1.6 – Confidentiality of Information; • Rule 1.7 – Conflicts of Interest: Current Clients • Rule 1.9 – Duties to Former Clients • Rule 1.18 – Duties to Prospective Clients But that’s only a small part of

Program Number: 29165 Presenter: Sadia Mirza, Esq.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) takes effect in less than three months and is still riddled with confusions and ambiguities. Organizations seeking to comply with the new privacy law are left in the dark trying to understand not only the intent behind certain CCPA provisions, but also how to comply. Over a dozen amendments were introduced over the last year to clarify, alleviate, and minimize certain operational concerns, but only certain amendments will likely be signed into law. Join Troutman Sanders’ attorney Sadia Mirza for a discussion relating to the scope of the act, new rights afforded to California consumers, potential exemptions, and a discussion relating to the amendments that have surfaced the California Legislature this year and what they mean in terms of operationalizing compliance.

Broker-Dealer Custody of ‎Digital Asset Securities: A Regulatory View and How it Works (10/07/2019)

Program Number: 29159 Presenter: Michael Blankenship, Esq., Ricardo Lopez, Esq.

As digital assets continue to gain traction within the financial system, legacy institutions and innovative fintech startups are looking for ways to incorporate digital asset securities as part of their asset management services. Unlike traditional assets, digital assets are generally created, stored, exchanged, and managed in a decentralized computation network. Due to its decentralized nature, these types of assets pose new and singular custody challenges with respect to the broker-dealer relationship. This is particularly true as companies such as Fidelity, Bakkt and Coinbase prepare to provide custody of digital assets for sophisticated institutional clients and individual customers, all while ensuring that they comply with all state and federal regulations, including the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970. This presentation provides an overview of what constitutes digital assets, the current legal and regulatory landscape affecting the broker-dealer relationship, how government agencies—including the SEC and FINRA—
