Joshua Ashley Klayman, head of MoFo’s Blockchain + Smart Contracts Group, commented on the challenges attorneys face as they embrace blockchain to meet the demands of their financial clients in the article, “Financial Counsel Prepare for Blockchain Heading Into 2017,” published by Legaltech News.

“What I really see happening right now is not that the lawyers or law firms themselves are moving to blockchain, but, rather, that our clients are really looking into blockchains and smart contracts for their businesses," said Ms. Klayman. "This means that we, as lawyers, need to be knowledgeable about blockchain and smart contracts to be able to advise our clients on what the risks may be and to help them strategize.”
