Partner Todd Toral Recognized as National Law Journal “Cryptocurrency Trailblazer”

The National Law Journal recognized Jenner & Block Partner Todd C. Toral in its inaugural list of “Cryptocurrency, Blockchain and FinTech Trailblazers.”  The list spotlights individuals who “are making great strides as finance and technology grow more and more entwined” and “who have truly ‘moved the needle’ in facilitating these new technologies and digital currencies.”

Mr. Toral’s profile spotlights his work as lead counsel on the first case filed in the United States seeking valuation of cryptocurrencies, which will help dictate how other courts interpret standards in cryptocurrency-related disputes and apply them to future lawsuits.  Mr. Toral represents an investor who sued a cryptocurrency hedge fund for refusing to grant access to its accounting records, and notes in the profile that cases like his are “helping to bring the clarity and accountability that investors need for cryptocurrency funds and exchanges.”
