We help clients obtain legal opinions in relation to regulatory requirements, for example the Singapore Payment Services Act 2019, the Securities and Futures Act, Cap. 289 of Singapore (SFA) or the Securities and Futures Ordinance, Cap. 571 of Hong Kong (SFO).

Cryptocurrency exchanges, financial institutions and intermediaries usually require a Singapore legal opinion issued by a duly authorised law firm in order to be assured of the legal "utility" nature of any digital tokens or the compliance of a blockchain ecosystem with the Singapore Payment Services Act 2019.

Clients receive legal opinions issued by duly authorised Singapore advocates and solicitors or Hong Kong solicitors in accordance with the usual requirements imposed by token exchanges, banks, regulators and other market participants - in respect of the jurisdictions listed on this page through our global network of 'tried and tested' affiliated law firms. All Singapore law advice is facilitated by Ressos and formally signed off by our independent liaision firm of Singapore advocates and solicitors.

Ressos works closely with the leading token exchanges, has been appointed to the legal panel of several leading exchanges, and has procured hundreds of legal opinions for its clients. Legal opinions are charged on a fixed fee basis. The turnaround time from taking instructions to the issuing of the legal opinion is typically around one week.
