Carlton Fields Joins Florida Blockchain Business Association

Tampa, Fla. – Carlton Fields has joined the Florida Blockchain Business Association (FBBA), making it one of the first major law firms in the state to do so. The strategic partnership reflects the firm’s commitment to evolve and strengthen its Real Estate and Blockchain and Digital Currency Practices.

Established in 2018, the FBBA is dedicated to bringing together business and industry leaders, regulators, and representatives across Florida to prioritize and advocate for issues that influence the state’s blockchain industry. The group aims to cultivate economic growth and opportunity across the state and secure Florida’s position as a global leader in blockchain, namely in the areas of legislation and real estate.

Several Carlton Fields attorneys spearheaded the partnership, attending many of the organization’s events before the firm became an official partner. Among those attorneys are Coy Stull in Tampa, Dennis Olle and Matthew Kohen in Miami, and Ilan Nieuchowicz in West Palm Beach. Additional members of the firm will also participate in the organization through its statewide local meetings and events.

Kohen and Nieuchowicz participate in the FBBA’s Real Estate Committee, which aims to unite regulators and industry leaders to cultivate a more technologically focused real estate business environment.

“It’s important to remember that blockchain technology isn’t exclusive to the crypto world,” said Kohen. “Title work, real estate records, ownership, real property, and tokenization of commercial projects are prime examples of non-crypto blockchain growth that we’re seeing across South Florida.”

As businesses across the country continue to identify opportunities for growth and development presented by blockchain technology, Carlton Fields remains at the forefront of exploration and experience in relevant industries with its practices in Blockchain and Digital Currency, Intellectual Property, Crypto Insolvency and Fiduciary, Business Transactions, Financial Services Regulatory, Cybersecurity and Privacy, Technology, and Insurtech.
