Profile for International Women's Day
Sequor Law Shareholder,
Leyza F. Blanco was interviewed by ThoughtLeaders4 Fire where she discusses her journey to where she is now, the challenges she has faced, and the advice she gives to the next generation of female practitioners.    
“Own your career and fight impostor syndrome. Believe you can do it. Most importantly, once you achieve success, pay it forward and help other women.”

Sequor Law Counsel, 
Daniel M. Coyle, shared his insights about the role of Cryptocurrency in the legal industry on this month's Attorney Spotlight.
What practice areas do you focus on?
I focus on creditor’s rights, asset recovery and bankruptcy, with a focus on cross-border issues. I represent creditors of all types, whether institutional/non-institutional lenders, trade creditors, or judgment creditors regarding debts ranging from commercial loans to fraud claims. I assist with national and global asset recovery asset efforts as well as wholly-instate efforts and I am practicing in state courts, bankruptcy courts and federal district and appellate courts. 
What has been your experience as a member of the International Committee for NAFER?
It has been rewarding to have conversations and share panels with a broad range of experts in the area of financial fraud. My first exposure to cryptocurrency came from my involvement with NAFER. 
What types of issues have emerged regarding the interactions between the developing legal landscape of cryptocurrency, including NFTs, and well-established areas of law?
We as asset recovery lawyers have been forced to face the reality that the current tools that the law gives creditors and fraud victims are not tailored to these types of assets. We need to attempt to fit these types of remedies—many of which were created by the common law and only later codified—into the pursuit of an asset that is intangible. The ease and speed with which these assets can be transferred outside of a given jurisdiction is also an obstacle.
