Why people choose 42escrow

Best Price Guarantee

We believe our prices to be unbeatable by other providers. Although you are contracting with a law firm licensed in England & Wales, New York and Austria, you will never pay a cent more than for startup competitors.

Ease-of-use and Automation

Managing a law firm and heading up a software startup makes us naturally sensitive to time constraints. As a result, we prioritized automation and built the most convenient, state-of-the-art code deposit solution in the market – for developers and licensors.

Highest legal standards

Instead of handmade agreements, the legal framework underlying our services is based on 20 years of practicing and studying transactional and technology law at the highest levels. Worry no more, and trust that these agreements will withstand any scrutiny by your own lawyers – should you choose to involve them.
