by your side to help you innovate in a safe legal environment.

Web 3 is a new internet paradigm that emphasizes decentralization, transparency, privacy, and user autonomy. It entails the integration of tools based on blockchain, cryptocurrencies, or even the metaverse, and it affects a wide range of industries and business types. Gavin Wood, who was involved in the development of Ethereum, the second most important cryptocurrency after Bitcoin, coined the term Web3 in 2014.


This new ecosystem brings novel legal challenges for the companies participating in it.

We protect your interests

We advise at all stages of project development, whether you are a Web3 pure player, a digital service provider, a blockchain specialist, or just thinking about implementing a Web3-related project. We identify the risks your project faces, and help you mitigate them.

For traditional businesses, our team trains your management and employees on the opportunities and risks associated with your industry and projects, be it the creation of a collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the sale of assets in the metaverse, the development of tracking and authentication systems for your products, or the creation of bespoke digital wallets.


Ours is a proactive approach, geared towards understanding all the risks related to Web3.

Our focus is on the legal aspects of your projects and external growth goals, looking at: Contacts
  • Taxation - defining the tax and accounting components of blockchain-based products, NFTs, and cryptocurrencies; identifying and managing fiscal risks; other fiscal implications for digital assets; resale rights and compensations, etc.
  • Dematerialized fundraising (STOs, ICOs)
  • Creation and sale of NFTs
  • Contracts
  • Intellectual property and copyright, transfer of exploitation rights
  • Compliance, especially in relation to anti-corruption and anti-money laundering regulation
  • Identification of sanctions and relationship-building with regulators (Financial Markets Authority, National Gaming Authority, National Data Protection Commission, etc.)
  • Cybersecurity
  • Legal and fiscal structuring of consortia, entities, and operators using blockchain technology
  • Audit and due diligence, transactions, and financing for external growth operations
  • Pre-litigation and litigation assistance before all relevant jurisdictions, depending on the case.
