Blockchain Technology and Smart Contracts

Friday, October 06, 2017,
  • Location: Vanderbilt Law School • 131 21st Ave South • Nashville, TN 37203

By employing blockchain--or "distributed ledger" technology--smart contracts have the potential to transform the way businesses enter a wide range of contracts and agreements.

The rise of blockchain technology over the past several years has introduced endless possibilities for business applications, stretching far beyond financial transactions and bitcoin. The technology offers immutable, fast, secure and transparent solutions that allow transactions and agreements to happen without the “middleman,” thereby cutting cost and simplifying the process. However, only a small number of law firms, who traditionally play a big part in contract preparation, are up to speed on the advances.

Join the Law and Business Society and the Legal Technology Society as we host Joshua Rosenblatt (JD/MBA'10) of Frost Brown Todd to discuss blockchain technology and FBT's creation of a smart contract app for software escrow agreements.

Joshua Rosenblatt (JD/MBA'10)As a managing associate in the firm's Nashville office, Josh Rosenblatt is a trusted advisor in the financial technology (fintech) industry. He also serves as the head of the firm's blockchain team. Additionally, he is the managing director of BlackLine Advisory Group, a fintech consulting firm and ancillary business of Frost Brown Todd. Rosenblatt also has extensive experience representing the health care industry and other industries in general corporate matters. He advises clients on issues affecting private equity, joint ventures and start-ups. He also provides guidance to clients regarding securities law compliance and periodic reporting by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Investment Advisers Act of 1940.

This event is free and open to all Vanderbilt Law students. Lunch will be served.
