As the evolution of blockchain technology continues, so too has the ICO (Initial Coin Offering) ecosystem and with a shift towards Token Generation Events (or Security Token Offerings), we are seeing the evolution of the Australian legal fraternity as they try to keep up on the latest legal, regulatory and compliance information.

One of Australia's legal firms - The Fold Legal - is at the top of its game so much so it was announced at the Finnie Awards as the Winner of the Excellence in FinTech Support Services - Professional Services 2018.

BWiB is honoured to have Ms Charmian Holmes, Solicitor Director, The Fold Legal to share her insights to how the legal professional is adapting to better support blockchain and crypto-focused startups and companies.

Here is introduction to Charmian.

Charmian Holmes joined The Fold in 2003 having previously worked at Phillips Fox (now DLA Piper).

Charmian is a Solicitor Director of the firm and provides regulatory, corporate and commercial advice to financial services and credit clients. She works with insurtech and fintech businesses, including blockchain, ICO and cryptocurrency clients. She is recognised for her expertise in innovative insurance solutions and is sought after within the insurtech space. Charmian also heads up The Fold’s corporate advisory practice, where her advice is sought on buying and selling financial services businesses, venture capital raises including ICOs, seed and bridging rounds and crowdfunding platforms.

Please arrive at 12.00 pm for some early networking before we kick off the meet up at 12.30 pm sharp. We finish up at 1.30 pm with 30 minutes after for final networking.
