Review quote

'Start-up Law provides a broad overview of the key legal questions that young companies are required to master, doing so in comprehensive language, understandable by non-practitioners. It particularly addresses the need for start-up companies to look outside their own borders to benefit from the various opportunities of global jurisdictions. For anyone who is either starting a company or looking to expand to one of the covered jurisdictions, this resource will help you save a lot of valuable time and legal fees.' -- Matthieu Guiessaz, Blockchain Valley Ventures, Switzerland
