Details

When I began learning about blockchain technology and its relationship to law, Hannah Glass's name would often be associated with some of the online thought leadership pieces particularly in the areas of regulation, smart contracts and ICOs. Ages later I was fortunate to watch Hannah in action on panels and in interviews and immediately found myself to be the presence of not only a brilliant mind, but also someone who was also willing to get involved and help nurture the emerging blockchain community here in Australia. Based in Sydney, Hannah is a Senior Associate with King and Wood Mallesons, and it is my greatest pleasure to share Hannah's story with the Brisbane Women in Blockchain Meetup members. Hannah Glass is a senior associate in the leading financial markets team at King and Wood Mallesons, specialising in blockchain technology, fintech and payments. Hannah works with a broad range of clients including start-ups, industry bodies, ASX 200 companies and government bodies advising on the evolving legal and regulatory issues associated with the implementation and application of blockchain technology, cryptographic assets and digital currencies. Her work ranges from assisting start-ups to conduct global issuances and sales of tokens, to working with large organisations to formulate smart contract based infrastructure. She has also been involved in the development of the thinking around the treatment of digital currencies and other fintech related issues such as the regulatory sandbox, working with industry in Australia and internationally. Hannah has been named as an Up and Coming lawyer in the 2019 Chambers and Partners FinTech Guide. Hannah is also a fellow of the Australian Digital Commerce Association (ADCA) and a member of the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance’s legal working group. Please arrive around 12.00 pm for some networking with Meetup starting at 12.30 pm sharp finishing at 1.30 pm for further networking until 2.00 pm. Thank you to Fishburners for allowing me to host the BWiB meetup in its amazing event space.
