Jeff recently spoke at Harvard Law School regarding financial regulation for crypto and block chain companies.

“As an entrepreneur and Harvard Law Student, I am fascinated by the potential harnessed in block chain technology, which is why as the President of the Tax Law and Financial Regulation Student Association at Harvard Law School, we were absolutely thrilled to host attorneys Stephen Brook and Jeffrey Knight of Burns & Levinson who provided us with a rich overview and important considerations for the future. It is a welcomed and refreshing discourse they brought to our campus this afternoon.”
