    Our story

    Founded in 2011 as “Exlege”, Aurum emerged from an impassioned ambition to provide the highest level of legal service and care to visionary enterprises shaping our future.

    As a boutique firm, we provide unique benefits unparalleled by larger companies. Our firm’s scale enables us to offer unwavering dedication and personalized attention to each client. We cultivate deeply intimate client relationships, not merely serving as legal advisors but becoming essential components of our clients’ teams. Our approach is to integrate into their operations, aligning closely with their aspirations. This commitment to align with clients’ visions fosters a partnership characterized by mutual objectives and shared successes.

    Our years of dedication to technology, Web3, blockchain, FinTech, media, and innovation have honed our expertise in these fields, positioning us as the preferred legal partner for startups, projects, and enterprises in these dynamic sectors. We provide extensive legal solutions encompassing corporate law, intellectual property, cross-border transactions, investments, data protection, and regulatory compliance, addressing the full spectrum of their operational requirements.

    In 2020, Aurum strategically transitioned to a Web 3.0 model, closing physical offices to embrace advanced digital technologies. This shift enhances transparency, security, and efficiency in client interactions, enabling us to provide exceptional legal advice around the word, regardless of geographic location. Our virtual operation model significantly reduces overhead costs, enabling us to offer high-quality legal services at more competitive rates, directly benefiting our clients.
