Legal Consulting – Lviv IT Cluster

Legal Consulting

Legal services for tech companies

Our legal expertise in the tech industry

Legal services are a significant part of the Lviv IT Cluster’s activity. For over 10 years, our team of lawyers has been involved in creating legislation, joining work groups, and shaping legal approaches and constructs for regulating the industry. After the start of the full-scale invasion, the tech business also faced new challenges.

Legal Consulting involves a range of legal services, from operational consulting for tech companies to expertise in niche topics such as non-compete agreements, M&A, etc. Besides that, thanks to our participation in closed working groups at the state level, we have unique expertise that addresses the challenges of martial law. Our legal officers conduct closed webinars on the most relevant topics for the tech business and provide individual consultations.
