The 2019 Token Taxonomy Act: A Path to Consumer Protection and Innovation Takes Shape

by Daniel Nathan and Andrew Wallach | April.16.2019

We’ve previously written that the Token Taxonomy Act first introduced to Congress by Representatives Warren Davidson (R-OH) and Darren Soto (D-FL) on December 20, 2018, was a welcome legislative initiative designed to provide a regulatory “light touch” to the burgeoning digital asset industry. The bill expired, however, with the termination of the 115th Congress, leaving

School Finance

Our School Financing Group played a significant role in developing financing substitutes, including lease certificates of participation (COP) financing, asset transfer lease/leasebacks, Mello-Roos financing, and Education Code 39308.5 financing (using pre-Proposition 13 tax overrides for new school facilities). Innovative School Financing Solutions When Proposition 46, adopted in June 1986, restored school districts’ authority to use general obligation bonds, Orrick responded by drafting and implementing legislation and conducting seminars outlining the new procedures by which school ...

Swaps and Other Hedges

Derivative products have been developed in response to specific needs of issuers and bond purchasers.  Governing law or the issuer's objectives may not permit bonds to be issued in a form that would command the best price in the market.  Underwriters or other market participants, either in connection with the initial issuance of the bonds or in totally unrelated secondary market transactions, using custodial receipts, grantor trusts, swaps, puts or other devices, make a different instrument or instruments ("synthetic securities") out of the original bonds that they can market at an aggregate ...

State Attorneys General Practice

As their states’ chief law enforcement officers AGs are enforcing state laws in wide-ranging areas including consumer protection, data privacy, antitrust, and environmental law, and they influence important state policies and laws affecting the high-technology, energy, and healthcare sectors. As their states’ chief legal advisors, AGs also challenge federal laws, regulations, and policies in order to defend their states’ right to govern themselves against federal overreach. In an arena where many state AG practices have lawyers with little or no actual AG office experience, only Orrick’s ...

State Legislative and Regulatory Practice

States, not Congress, are enacting and enforcing the policies that affect if and how companies can legally operate their businesses in a particular state. State-level issues are especially challenging for businesses. Instead of one set of laws and regulations to consider at the federal level, there are potentially 50 different sets of regulations and legislation at the state level—passed by regulatory bodies and legislatures with their own unique procedures and timelines.  The stakes could not be higher: as one New York Times commenter noted, “a tweet-length change to a law could spell the ...
