Anderson Kill Expands Crypto With New Partner Bob Cornish


Law360 (August 14, 2019, 5:13 PM EDT) -- Securities veteran Bob Cornish has landed at Anderson Kill in Washington, D.C., where he will be working with the firm's corporate litigation group as well as its growing blockchain and virtual currency group. In his new role, Cornish is well-positioned to employ his expertise on recent and upcoming changes to cryptocurrency laws in Wyoming that he helped shape, to assist clients as they prepare for changes to the EB-5 immigrant investor program and to put his experience with international arbitration to use.


Cornish, who started the new job last week, told Law360 Tuesday that his first days at the company have been busy but satisfying as he gets to know his new co-workers. "I'm enjoying being with colleagues who are conversant in my area of practice," he said. Cornish has more than two decades of experience advising on investment matters. He recently gained prominence advising on legislative efforts to make Wyoming blockchain-friendly. Wyoming lawmakers have passed measures aimed at making their state a haven for cryptocurrency business, notably exempting virtual currencies from the state's property taxation laws. Cornish, who is admitted to practice in Wyoming, was involved in the changes.
