Clear Roadmaps

Engaging in litigation, either as a plaintiff or a defendant, is often the last resort. Our approach is to analyze the case from the very outset and present clients with clear roadmaps and decision trees to help them make informed decisions about whether to proceed with litigation, attempt to settle the case, or pursue another course of action.


Once the optimal strategy is determined, we pursue it zealously but also with due regard to the efficient allocation of resources, focusing on the areas that are most likely to result in a favorable outcome for the client. This not only enhances the prospects of success but also helps in managing the costs of litigation.


We are not afraid to get our hands dirty and favor the use of open-source intelligence (OSINT) and private investigations in the development and enhancement of dispute resolution strategies.

Our Approach


Pragmatic Approach

In certain cases, the chances of recovering stolen or lost crypto funds are extremely low. We only take on cases that show some potential for recovery, thereby saving time for you and our team.



We rely on open-source intelligence (OSINT) and private investigations to develop and enhance our crypto recovery strategies. For $5,000, you will receive a comprehensive report, answering key questions: what exactly happened with your funds, where they were transferred, and what options do we have.


Deep Understanding of Crypto

We have been advising clients on crypto-related matters since 2016 and have an excellent understanding of the technical nuances involved.


Relevant Network

Any successful recovery requires participation and coordination from multiple actors, such as lawyers, private investigators, crypto exchanges, and law enforcement authorities. Our extensive network encompasses these essential connections.


Crypto Fraud Legal Assessment Form

We ask all new clients to fill out a brief onboarding questionnaire and provide all relevant facts and information in advance. Once you submit the form, you can expect an initial reply from us within 48 hours.
