Program Number: 2845 Presenter: Ann Kotlarski, Esq. - Ann Kotlarski Mediation

Litigating employment claims can be risky, time consuming and expensive for the parties.

What factors should the parties consider in selecting a mediator? What is the best way to prepare for mediation? How do you avoid the common mistakes that a mediator may make?

Cryptocurrency Regulations: Past, Present, and Future

Program Number: 2840 Presenter: Zachary Kelman

Since the publication of the Satoshi Whitepaper in 2009 which launched the Bitcoin protocol, cryptocurrencies have begun reshaped the financial world. For the first time in human history, people can remotely transfer value across international boundaries without the need for any financial intermediaries. These financial intermediaries, however, are increasingly relied upon by regulators to self-police and to detect and report on information necessary for key regulatory and law enforcement functions.
