How it works:

Join a Legal Discovery Session with our Chief Legal Officer to learn about the best options for your project

Get a legal roadmap for your project with a list of tasks with cost & time estimates to achieve your project’s goals

Your Virtual Legal Officer will manage the implementation of your roadmap and manage the lawyers who will work on your legal tasks

We provide virtual legal support for founders of Web3 projects

Play-to-Earn Games
To register a play-to-earn game in a suitable jurisdiction, founders must consider the legal possibility of NFT minting and in-app purchases with crypto.
Crypto Exchanges
In many countries crypto exchanges need to obtain special licenses to open bank accounts and issue crypto payment cards to their clients.
Crypto Wallets
Wallet providers need to obtain special authorizations from financial monitoring authorities and implement KYC procedures to have the right to store 3rd party's virtual assets.
NFT Marketplaces
Depending on which business model is being used, your NFT marketplace may need registration in an IP-friendly country or may need to obtain auction licenses.
DeFi Apps
DeFi are recognized as financial service providers in many countries. These services need to comply with financial regulations or need to be registered in countries with loyal regulatory regime for DeFi.
Web3 Funds
A suitable legal structure for a Web3 VC fund will depend on the type of planned investment activities (VC investments or crypto asset management & trading).
