Boxerman and Schwerin become Inaugural Members of Digital Currency and Ledger Defense Coalition

Sanford J. Boxerman and Michelle F. Schwerin, members of the Capes Sokol White Collar Criminal Defense & Internal Investigations practice group, have joined more than fifty other attorneys from around the country,  to form the Digital Currency and Ledger Defense Coalition (DCLDC).

The objective of the DCLDC is “to help protect individual constitutional rights and civil liberties in connection with regulatory and law enforcement scrutiny and efforts relating to digital currencies (e.g. bitcoin) and ledgers (e.g. blockchains).”

The DCLDC exists to help people and companies deal with legal issues involving these technologies.  In addition, members of the DCLDC plan to submit amicus briefs in cases where key issues impacting those technologies may arise.
