He received his B.Sc. in Biochemistry from University of California San Diego and his J.D. from University of Minnesota. Due to Julian’s expertise in both legal and investment topics we would suggest him talking about "Securities Law Developments for the Blockchain - What is in Store for businesses and funds in 2018”. We’ve seen recently a huge interest from the audience to understand legal aspects internationally. We’ve also seen that a lot of market players trade and launch their own funds in parallel to their major businesses, which pushes them to get better at legal questions.
