Decentralized Lawyer


Sohaib’s practice focuses on providing advice at the cutting-edge of blockchain, finance, and law. 

In 2018, Sohaib made his first cryptocurrency purchase. Since then, he has witnessed first-hand the exponential growth of this space, including a shifting of the narrative around Bitcoin’s use case from a world reserve currency to a store of value, the growth of smart contracts and layer 1 blockchains, and the emergence of DeFi, GameFi, NFTs, and DAOs. 

As a scientist, Sohaib is fascinated by the technical underpinnings of blockchain technology. As a lawyer, Sohaib believes decentralization can serve the ends of justice, as there is no fairer system of wealth distribution than an immutable blockchain. As a collector, Sohaib loves buying and trading NFTs and is currently working on developing a legal office in the metaverse. 

Sohaib articled in an intellectual property (IP) rotation, where he assisted with a large pharmaceutical patent trial. Before starting his practice, Sohaib worked as a patent litigator in the pharmaceutical space.
