Legal Nodes helps founders solve their legal matters all in one place, with help from a network of international lawyers at their fingertips.
We also provide Virtual Legal Officers, who orchestrate activities transparently, keeping costs down and output up.
Back in 2018, Margo, Nestor, and Max embarked on a journey to redefine the legal services industry. Their goal was simple: make legal services more transparent, cost-efficient, and accessible to internationally spread founders doing cross-border business.
After months of development, tests, and fundraising, the Legal Nodes model emerged. The result? A platform that faciliates a cross-border legal service with help from the uniquely specialist role of the Virtual Legal Officer, who orchestrates the activity on the platform.
Today, we support founders who are living as digital nomads, entrepreneurs running cross-border businesses, and creators of Web3 projects, to solve their legal matters with help from a perfectly picked mix of legal, tax, and privacy specialists spread across the globe.
