Start-Ups, Technology and Innovation
Innovation is in our blood, and this is why BPV is committed to technology. We have recognised experience, nationally and internationally, in advising entrepreneurs, Business Angels, Venture Capital and other players in the ecosystem.
This department, with the best experts in the sector, provides the agents of the start-up ecosystem with high-level legal advice right from its beginnings.
We provide individual advice tailored to each newly created organization, attending to its needs and, depending on its stage of growth, enabling its entrepreneurs to make the important decisions that are appropriate for the business and adapted to it.
Our highly specialised team tailors our offer to each client, providing solutions to meet the legal and regulatory challenges arising from digitalization and new technologies.
We have a multidisciplinary profile, but above all, a technological one, so we can advise on disruptive technologies, Blockchain, crypto assets, NFTs and other emerging sectors such as eSports.
