Emily Nuvan is an associate in the firm’s Litigation practice focusing on white-collar crime, data innovation and emerging digital assets. Emily’s work encompasses blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies, decentralized finance (DeFi) and nonfungible tokens (NFTs).

She had previously served as a judicial intern there as well. Emily also has prior experience as a summer law clerk for the Utah Indigent Defense Commission.
