Norton Rose Fulbright New York office’s next 40-minute financial services briefing is set for Thursday, January 5, 2017 at 12:00 noon EST. Each month, Norton Rose Fulbright’s senior practitioners will provide interested in-house counsel and professionals with an insightful discussion on current regulatory trends within the financial services sector.

The briefings will stick strictly to a 40-minute format, over a provided lunch, and begin at 12:00 PM sharp.

The January briefing will focus on Fintech: Smart contracts and regulating for innovation. Smart contracts are receiving significant attention — both for their cutting-edge technology and for their potential disruptive use in financial services and other industries. They have the potential to transform businesses and deliver significant cost savings by automating and streamlining processes.

Topics will include:

  • Mechanics of “smart contracts” and blockchain technology
  • Latest regulatory guidance and comment
  • Emerging commercial and use cases
  • Trends and future developments
