Legal support for IT business

Modern technologies have forever changed the paradigms of entrepreneurship and law. In the IT industry, many concepts differ from conventional ones. For example, a firm is no longer required to have a physical office and manufacturing facilities. Employees may be located in different parts of the world and in different time zones. And communication is carried out by digital methods, while data is stored in the digital cloud. Also, the concept of “product” and “service” takes on another meaning. The geniuses of information technology often create something that the law cannot define. In this case, the governments of many countries have to adapt and keep up with the times, creating regulations for new types of commercial activities. The most striking examples of recent years are cryptocurrencies, digital money, FX exchanges, and many others.
IT startups occupy a special niche. Often a new venture created by a group of enthusiasts does not have a reputation in the market. Still, a potentially promising product may interest investors and consumers. In order to receive funding and, consequently, opportunities for development, a startup needs to work out the legal part of it in a quality manner. Given the high competition and recent cases of fraud, investors have become more cautious, wiser, and more attentive, which means their lawyers carefully examine every document under a magnifying glass.
