The Miranda Alliance is thrilled to announce that it has joined the Global Legal Blockchain Consortium (GLBC) as its first African organization.
GLBC is a group comprised of more than 90 large companies, law firms, software companies, and universities dedicated to develop standards to govern the use of blockchain technology in the business of law.
“We believe this is a great responsibility for the Miranda Alliance member firms”, said Catarina Cunha e Távora, Miranda’s Partner responsible for IT Solutions and Innovation. “Blockchain technology has the potential of significantly changing the legal landscape throughout the world in the next years, but we believe that it has the potential of being particularly impacting in Africa, where it can contribute significantly and decisively to speed-up the Continent’s legal practices”.
Operating 26 offices across 18 countries and four continents, with particular expertise assisting businesses in some of the most challenging and fastest-growing sub-Saharan African and Emerging Markets, the Miranda Alliance is committed to investing in technology.
“We are excited to have the Miranda Alliance involved. Their presence throughout Africa and the rest of the world brings a new perspective about blockchain to the GLBC. We are looking forward to their collaboration and input", said David Fisher, Director and Founder of the Global Legal Blockchain Consortium.
As Diogo Xavier da Cunha, Miranda's Managing Partner, states “The Miranda Alliance’s multi-jurisdictional focus in the African continent will allow us to bring our regional experience into play by sharing different insights and collaborating with the members of the GLBC community towards the development of this innovative technology for the benefit of both our clients and other stakeholders across the Continent”.
