Reed Smith partner Christine Parker has been invited to testify before the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services at a hearing titled “America on “FIRE”: Will the Crypto Frenzy Lead to Financial Independence and Early Retirement or Financial Ruin?” on Wednesday, June 30 at 10 am ET.

Parker was asked to testify due to her experience in advising market participants in the development of digital asset and cryptocurrency technologies including token sales, market infrastructure, trading, clearing, and settlement solutions on distributed ledger technology. Her practice also focuses on regulatory, enforcement and transactional matters related to commodities, derivatives, and cryptocurrencies, including trading and exchange-related matters and compliance and regulatory issues relating to the Commodity Exchange Act, CFTC regulations, and CFTC-regulated exchanges and clearinghouses.
