Blockchain Technology and Its Applicability to the Practice of Real Estate Law by S.H. Spencer Compton and Diane Schottenstein
Real Estate transactions are steeped in traditions that have hardly changed over hundreds of years. Today, as computer-based property recording systems are prevalent in our cities but roll out at a snail's pace in rural areas (often hindered by strained municipal budgets), and e-signatures are little used (due to legitimate fears of fraud), arguably the real estate closing process has lagged in its use of computer aided technology.
S. H. Spencer Compton has been a vice president and special counsel at the New York office of First American Title Insurance Company since 2001. Prior to that, he was a real estate attorney in New York City, with an emphasis on commercial leasing and real estate financing transactions. Diane Schottenstein is a real estate attorney practicing in Manhattan for over twenty years. She has experience in office and retail leasing, financing, and the acquisition and sale of residential and commercial real estate.
