"As CEO of a start-up company that seeks to impose an innovative product on the market, I highly value the legal advice given by DPC’s experts. Without their unique expertise in the FinTech sector our project would not be given green light. Subsequently, they helped us with corporate restructuring what ensured additional funding and paved the way to the company’s growth. This is indeed a full-service law firm on which I rely for this and other corporate projects". - Konstantin Bezuhanov, Evrotrust Technologies
