The Law of Fintech: Regulating Cryptocurrency, Crowdfunding, Robo-advisors, and Digital Banking

Boston University School of Law's 2017 Fintech Symposium will bring together leading scholars and industry professionals to discuss key legal issues facing the young Fintech sector. The term “Fintech,” broadly describes financial innovations that utilize both the advanced technologies and the “disruption” mindset of startup companies. However, the financial industry has proven difficult to disrupt, as incumbents hold a huge advantage in their ability to navigate strict financial laws and regulations. Meanwhile, lawmakers themselves are wrestling to make room in the financial sector for young companies, while ensuring consumers are protected and financial crises are avoided. Our four panels of experts will discuss these issues as they pertain to four specific areas of Fintech: (1) Cryptocurrency, (2) Crowdfunding, (3) Robo-advising, and (4) Digital Banking.

Amber Dolman, a partner in Goodwin's Financial Industry practice and co-leader of the firm's Fintech practice, will be a featured speaker on a panel discussing robo-advising.
