The world we are living in is changing at a high pace. Novel technologies and business models emerge faster than ever, causing innovation through disruption more often than through gradual evolution. Either way, success is not a matter of pure chance. It requires careful planning, including on the legal and regulatory side of things. Coupled with a healthy dose of out-of-the-box thinking, and an ability to work cross-jurisdictionally, across continents and cultures, this is how we at BODENHEIMER contribute to shaping the future of the global virtual economy.
