Tracing the blockchain: Fraudsters to sanctions dodgers


We hosted our second seminar this Autumn, “Tracing the blockchain: From fraudsters to sanctions dodgers – investigatory and legal remedies to locate and recover crypto” in partnership with CMS.

Raedas’ Matthew Walker and Henry Edelstein were joined by acclaimed crypto author Erica Stanford and CMS fintech partner Charles Kerrigan to discuss cryptocurrency in the context of sanctions and how to trace and enforce against crypto assets.

Topics of discussion included:

  • What are the differences between crypto-currencies, and how do they impact legal and investigation strategy?
  • How do fraudsters and sanctions dodgers attempt to hide their assets using crypto?
  • How can crypto transactions and crypto assets be traced?
  • Tracing crypto versus other asset classes: is a new approach required?
  • What legal remedies are available to freeze, seize and recover crypto?

The discussion was followed by a Q&A session and networking from 10am to 11am.
