More About Filipp

My legal journey started in Belarus and led me to New York, where I am admitted to practice law. 

The path of the legal profession can be unclear, yet I found my passion in helping entrepreneurs and visionaries comply with the law while they change this world. That is why I am focused on fintech, web3, corporate law, and sanctions regulations. 

Outside of work, I photograph moments and enjoy challenging myself with different sports. Also, I like to get out of town for a hike or to visit historical places.
