GLT Law Connects To Polymath Service Provider Ecosystem

By Polymath

GLT Law, a Malaysian legal firm with expertise in digital assets and blockchain, have been added to the Polymath Service Provider Ecosystem. As part of the ecosystem, GLT Law is positioned to advise on the legal requirements of issuing a security token using Polymath's technology.

"Security tokens are among the most disruptive technologies today and keeping up with legislation requires a flexible and creative approach," said Ming Chiek, Partner heading the Corporate, Capital Markets and M&A team at GLT Law. "We're excited to provide Polymath users with legal knowledge and support as the security token market expands in Malaysia and across South East Asia."

GLT Law provides legal advice for structuring a security token offering (STO) and assists in matters such as preparing token sale agreements and T&Cs, engaging with regulators and authorities, and completing necessary regulatory filings.

GLT Law's collaboration with Polymath comes soon after the Securities Commission Malaysia issued revised guidelines governing digital assets and began accepting applications from Malaysian initial exchange offering (IEO) operators and digital asset custodians (DAC) in October 2020. The new guidelines promote responsible innovation in the Malaysian digital asset space, while managing emerging risks and safeguarding the interests of issuers and investors.

"Security tokens are subject to strict regulations just like traditional securities, and it's exciting for market participants in Malaysia to have clear, forward-thinking legal guidelines,” said Lechi Zhang, Director, Business Development (APAC) at Polymath. "We look forward to combining Polymath's technology with GLT's legal know-how to support token projects in the region."

The Polymath Service Provider Ecosystem brings together custody agents, broker-dealers, legal firms, tax services, cap table management providers, KYC/AML providers, and others who can help users create, issue and manage their token.
