Since the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA) became law in August 2018, and new regulations implementing FIRRMA became effective in February 2020, the scope CFIUS’s jurisdiction has broadened dramatically, and CFIUS has increasingly used this jurisdiction to block proposed investments and even require divestment of consummated transactions.

Program Number: 3085 Presenter: Tai H. Park, Esq.

This program will explain the principles of the insider trading law under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act and describe why it has proven to be so difficult to apply consistently. In recent years, the underlying, conceptual problem in the law was highlighted when judges of the Second Circuit sharply disagreed with each other in two high profile cases. In U.S. v. Newman, a unanimous panel reversed the conviction after trial of two hedge fund portfolio managers, declaring that their alleged insider trading conduct was in fact not illegal. Just a few years later, in U.S. v. Martoma, a different panel of Second Circuit judges affirmed the conviction of another portfolio manager as it disagreed with the thrust of the Newman opinion. A dissenting judge in Martoma wrote a vigorous dissent accusing the majority of flatly contradicting Newman. This split remains unresolved. In a new Second Circuit

Demystifying Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies (05/07/2020)

Program Number: 3078 Presenter: David Kalat

In conventional usage, the term “hacking” generally refers to an unauthorized user gaining access to an electronic resource.

The high-profile, most destructive, and expensive “hacks” in blockchain environments actually represent *authorized* users misbehaving. In some cases, these are authorized users acting on their own behalf to exploit weaknesses in the system to their own gain at the expense of other users, in other cases these are authorized users who are misusing the trust placed in them by their customers. The key to protecting yourself against fraud in this new alien
