As Gowling WLG continues to assert itself as the Canadian legal industry's blockchain torchbearer, our collaboration with Decentral will ensure our clients have access to the cutting-edge tools and forward-looking expertise needed to succeed in an increasingly competitive landscape."
As part of the agreement, Decentral will help Gowling WLG develop its internal blockchain infrastructure and client-facing tools. Gowling WLG will provide comprehensive legal guidance on Decentral's current practices and ongoing projects.
Decentral's President Addison Cameron-Huff said: "This alliance demonstrates Canada's leadership in the blockchain space - a winning combination of a world-class blockchain software team plus a best-of-breed legal team. Together, Gowling WLG and Decentral will help to refine and architect the burgeoning Canadian blockchain industry, lifting the technology to new heights."
