Alexandra “Sasha” Levin Kramer is a partner at the global law firm of CKR Law LLP, and the Founding Chair of its Blockchain Technology & Digital Currency practice group of over 40 attorneys world-wide, who provide U.S. and foreign clients including startups, crypto funds, investors, advisors and more with sophisticated and knowledgeable legal advice in underlying legal specialties such as securities, real estate, intellectual property, banking, finance, corporate, investment funds, employment and litigation.
She is also the North American Director for the Foundation for International Blockchain and Real Estate Expertise and serves as a mentor for The Columbia | IBM Blockchain Accelerator and the Alchemist Blockchain Techstars Accelerator.
Alexandra currently serves as the Chief Diversity Officer for the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance and is the creator of Women on the Block (the first all-female speaker Blockchain conference which took place on Mother’s Day, 2018 as part of New York Blockchain Week) as she believes that efforts are required to drive greater diversity across the ecosystem of blockchain, as it evolves and permeates multiple industry sectors around the world. Women and members of underrepresented groups should be provided a voice, a place at the table, and recognition of their revolutionary efforts in this industry to date, which at its core, is also good for business.
She is also the co-founder and CEO of Womin.io, a blockchain-powered marketplace for employers and female freelancers to engage directly on a peer-to-peer basis.
Alexandra started her career practicing U.S. corporate & securities law in London at magic circle firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and later at White & Case in London and New York. Eventually she focused on real estate transactions at Katten Muchin Rosenman in New York. She later co-founded an alternative real estate investment fund, which she managed for five years before returning to practice blockchain law at CKR Law LLP. Prior to attending law school, Alexandra worked in Jerusalem in the offices of Member of Parliament Dr. Yuri Shtern and the Yisrael B’Aliya Parliamentary Party. She is a graduate of New York University (MS, Real Estate Finance & Investment, 2011), University of Pennsylvania Law School (JD, 2001) and Barnard College of Columbia University (BA, 1994).
