Duane Morris partners Robin McGrath and Cindy Yang have been named to National Law Journal’s list of Cryptocurrency, Blockchain and FinTech Trailblazers.

The inaugural list honors individuals who are “making great strides as finance and technology grow more and more entwined" and “facilitating these new technologies and digital currencies.”

National Law Journal writes:
Leveraging her experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in patent and technology disputes, Ms. McGrath has worked with fintech companies focusing on ways to protect and enforce their technology assets. 

Ms. Yang has advised clients creating their own decentralized blockchain and issuing cryptocurrencies—incentivizing people to be a part of the network—and getting clearance and clarification on the question of whether bitcoin or other digital assets are a currency, commodity or security.

Ms. McGrath and Ms. Yang lead Duane Morris’ Financial Technology practice.
