23rd February, LONDON, UK – Coinfirm, the industry-leading RegTech provider and Stelios Americanos & Co. LLC, a highly innovative Cypriot law firm, today announce their joint cooperation.
“Coinfirm has always put great importance in ensuring the efficiency in speed and cost that blockchain brings – as well as the opportunity to reinvent entire market structures – can benefit more than just financial markets and its counterparties. We are glad that our partner, Stelios Americanos & Co. LLC, is taking a step further into embracing this remarkable technology.” – Paweł Aleksander, CIO and cofounder of Coinfirm
“Innovation is the component of a thriving business and when it comes to Blockchain the value is immense. We are possibly the first law firm in the world which developed and offered to its corporate clients Blockchain Share Certificates; a groundbreaking evolution for the area of corporate law and a successful crossing for us to the gateway of digitalization and decentralization. As dedicated supporters and promoters of the use of disruptive technologies, we are very excited that Coinfirm becomes our tech partner.” – Charis Savvides, Partner & Head of Innovation and Blockchain Department of Stelios Americanos & Co LLC
The main objective is to jointly enhance the respective firms’ powers in business, research and professional training levels, by connecting the technological and legal expertise in matters of criminal investigation, law enforcement, AML/KYC solutions and the recovery of digital assets. Furthermore, the firms’ scope of cooperation includes the provision of insightful reports, seminars, workshops and conferences to the public, as well as the combination of the legal and technological expertise to provide holistic services to our clients in the industry of digital assets. In addition to regulatory compliance, of particular interest to both parties is the pursuit of the tokenization of traditionally high-value illiquid assets such as real estate, art and private equity. Blockchain promises to turn these asset classes into more liquid and transparent spaces whilst lowering the barrier to entry into these alternative investments.
