Internet giants have been taking advantage of the benefits guaranteed by law for years. Uber benefits from the Dutch tax laws, C-level Google employees are forbidden to work for competitors, Facebook wins lawsuit after lawsuit and pays tiny fines for violating Internet law.
Armies of lawyers working for internet giants continually come up with new legal solutions, create precedents in courts and defeat competitors in battles for customers.
For them litigation is not an expense item, but a way to open up new markets and optimize workflow in the occupied ones.

But over the 9 years of law practice in the IT sphere, our lawyers have managed to be among the first to learn about the new legislative tweaks, most effective business structures and judicial precedents. We compensate for our physical absence in key jurisdictions by building relationships with private and public institutions and partners in Europe, the US, Australia and Asia.
