A (Block)chain Reaction: Legislative Update On Blockchain-Related State Law
Guest Column | By Allisyn E. Monteleone, Dinsmore & Shohl LLP

As this understanding grows, so do the issues in the regulatory debate.

GDPR Is Coming And Retailers Need To Get Ready
Guest Column | By John Barchie, Arrakis Consulting

In 2017, over 8.1 million citizens of European Union countries visited the U.S. as tourists. It is reasonable to believe that while they were in the country, most of these tourists probably made some purchases at U.S. retailers.
