Civil fraud and asset recovery, Cryptocurrency

When can a crypto exchange be found negligent for failing to prevent fraud of a customer / shareholder

Friday 9th June 2023
2pm - 3pm
Free to attend | 1.0 CPD

In order to tackle the surging rate of cryptocurrency fraud, claims against crypto exchanges are expected to be the route that customers may next turn to. However, seeking recompense in this way will not be an easy feat and wallet holders may be expected to prove certain criteria before negligence claims are pursued in courts worldwide.

This webinar seeks to explore:

  • Whether cryptocurrency exchanges owe a duty of care to customers in the same way that banks are mandated to
  • If it is likely that the claimant can prove that a crypto exchange’s conduct has fallen below the expected standard
  • How negligence claims against exchanges will vary significantly by jurisdiction, exploring what claims may look like in the UK, Singaporean and US courts
  • The way in which forensic accountants can investigate these matters in future litigation, both before and after the matter becomes contentious

The webinar will be chaired by Tatiana Menshenina (Withers), and Sri Carmichael (Wilberforce Chambers) will speak alongisde Christopher LaVigne (Withers USA) and Raymond Davidson (Davidson Forensic Accountants).
