Stephen Wink, along with two partners in the New York office of Latham & Watkins, received the Innovation Award from the New York Law Journal (NYLJ), as part of the publication’s 2020 Professional Excellence Awards for their cutting-edge work in fintech. The NYLJ said that the award “recognizes creative and inspiring approaches and forward-thinking firms and individuals.” Wink and his partners collaborated with leading blockchain technology company ConsenSys, a firm client, to develop the Automated Convertible Note, a complimentary, OpenLaw-based document generator that helps startups raise capital with customizable market standard terms and optional digital token provisions.
