About Us

Our company is a conglomerate of lawyers from all over the world. The idea of creating an international law firm arose from the realization of the meaninglessness of geographical boundaries in connection with the spread of laws beyond the territories of their jurisdictions. That was dictated by GDPR exterritoriality rules, upcoming California privacy act, international character of structuring digital business, 5th Direction of the EU and new KYC/AML rules.

This idea does not belong to us. Nevertheless, Legal Kornet are the first dared to gather solid cluster of international lawyers: US patent attorneys, GDPR certified lawyers, Master of Law experts in intellectual property law and blockchain law experts that have numerous ICO projects behind that ready to resolve issues timely and in a good manner.

Without any doubts this world has changed. This world has changed with the first client who came for assistance to build new LocalBitcoins or develop corporate structure for a new Binance or simply to choose jurisdiction to settle an ICO.

Another story we faced with the requirement of exchange markets after the DAO case due to SEC ambiguous position. We had to analyze the nature of a token on its security features and to provide Legal Opinion exploring the Howey Test and other American tests.

We have no doubts that, our international experience will raise your business to on a new level.
