Ciphrex Corp, an emerging technology startup based in California and incorporated in Delaware, has selected the prestigious law firm of Perkins Coie LLP as their corporate legal counsel. Perkins Coie will assist Ciphrex in strategic legal areas including corporate structuring, licensing contracts and intellectual property.
Eric Lombrozo, Ciphrex’s Co-CEO and Chief Technology Officer, commented, “After an extensive search of legal advice options, we found that Perkins Coie is not only a prominent law firm with a national footprint and experience in technology startups, they are also the worldwide leader in virtual currency laws and regulations.” Peter Townshend, a veteran Perkins Coie attorney, was named Ciphrex’s corporate counsel.
Ciphrex is a provider of enterprise-grade software specialized in the cryptographic transaction processing (CTP) space. As part of the immediate restructuring, Ciphrex Corp will be acquiring Ciphrex LLC – a California company at the forefront of CTP technology – for an undisclosed amount. Ciphrex LLC’s intellectual property will be assigned to Ciphrex Corp.
Ciphrex’s core technology uses Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and its software portfolio includes CoinVault™ and CoinSocket™. CoinVault™ is a cutting-edge cryptocoin wallet application supporting offline keychain generation, offline signing, hierarchical deterministic keys, multi-device synchronization, m-of-n multisignature account management, and multiple blockchains including Bitcoin, Litecoin and others.
