Legal advisory that knows your business

LEGAL FRAME FOR YOUR PRODUCT DESIGN

We make sure that your products are designed meeting legal and ethical standards and that they will be sustainable in the long run.

In a field like crypto or tech that is positioned in the fault lines of various legal doctrines and regimes, it's actually really important to take the right legal steps in the right order. It is easier to design things right the first time than go back and fix them later. We like to call this the legal-first approach.

If you position your product or system in the right legal frame, you could gain an enormous advantage in ease of adoption, value capture and of course mitigate risks of shutdown, uncontrollable liabilities and other catastrophic failure conditions.

You may have the best idea with a potential to disrupt the given industry segment. Thats why sooner or later the regulators will step in to verify whether you've got the legal part of your bisnes right.

We've got you covered.
