How to track and to recover cryptocurrency
Room 343, Level 3


Asset Recovery Committee (Lead)


When it comes to digital assets, tracking and recovery is challenging, both from an investigative and enforcement perspective, given the speed at which digital assets can be transferred and a lack of novum of international private law in this area. In response to these challenges, this panel will discuss how civil asset recovery practitioners can work harmoniously with law enforcement agencies to make recoveries, and the benefits of an international model law to assist in the tracking and recovery of digital assets. This discussion comes at a critical time following a multitude of significant cryptocurrency scandals across several jurisdictions globally, not least the FTX scandal.
