In addition to other roles at Cogent, I help bring together partnerships, investors, programming, and events concerning Cogent, our clients, and the FinTech, Blockchain, and Technology space. Cogent has expertise in not only all areas of business/corporate, employment, and government contracting laws, but is also highly skilled in financial regulations, compliance programs, money transmitter laws, ICOs, and FinCen requirements.

They have specialization in Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (""FinCEN"") requirements and guidance, written and ongoing AML compliance programs, state-by-state money transmitter laws and licensure requirements, as well as Blockchain platforms and Bitcoin.
