To properly develop our idea of an application rewarding responsible, sustainable, and charity activities we needed to make sure that we could rely on experienced and trusted legal advisors. As a Greek startup project, we searched for a legal advisor that could truly understand our needs, give substantial guidance on the uncertain first steps of a startup, and assist with both the EU and global prospect of our project. We found Christiana Aristidou LLC to be the ideal counsel and we are happy to say that they certainly did not disappoint.
Christiana Aristidou LLC helped us identify the legal needs of our project, considering the various stages of development (POC, MVP, etc.), and accounting for different technology options. Their assistance in this regard was critical and really showed their expertise on the interplay between law and technology. In a prompt and efficient manner, the firm advised us and prepared the necessary documents for our application, offering legal protection to the operation of our project and application. Based on the documents we have in place we have regulated our relationship with our users and partners in a business-wise sensible way while protecting our interests. We were amazed by the firm’s friendly and approachable staff and open channels of communication that allowed us to promptly follow up with our questions and additional needs. We have also engaged the firm for our intellectual property plan as they have high quality advisory services in this area.
