Welcome to our staff highlight blog series! In this series, we’ll be interviewing some of the key members of the Lexsynergy team, finding out more about them and the work they do, with a smattering of fun along the way and what better way to start off the series then with our CEO himself, Daniel Greenberg!
I was lucky enough to start my career in the field of Intellectual Property (“IP”) Law at a time when the Internet started to disrupt the IP community. This sparked my interest in domain names and the enforcement of copyright online.
While working hard to achieve my billable hours I started developing the idea for a service that would synergise the knowledge of IP law (“lex” in Latin) with technology, which is how I coined the name Lexsynergy.
I found corporate domain registrars did not provide advice backed by sound IP principles and that their portal data did not align. The foundation behind Lexsynergy was, and is, to make sure that domains are afforded the same status as other forms of IP, supported by sound strategies and data integrity.
Seeing the business grow and the value we add to our clients’ businesses.
The Lexsynergy team is spread across multiple locations so during each online global team meeting I have the opportunity to see the entire team. Seeing each member of the team contributing towards the success of Lexsynergy makes me proud.
Working and researching Web3 domains. Trying to make sense of the chaos they are causing.
In our Brand Protection Department we see a lot of scams, fraud and nefarious activity so we do become immune to these activities. One matter that stands out relates to a UDRP complaint filed against a client (an individual) by a large international company. The company sought to recover a domain they let go, which was snapped up by our client. We assisted our client by defending the domain complaint with the result that he reached a settlement, the value of which allowed him to a buy a new house “in cash”. It was crazy to see how a threat turned into an opportunity.

Suits. Besides everyone being good looking, its storylines are not based on factual events or the law.
They never refer to specifics of the law and always seem to carry around a thin folder with one or two pages in it. They often lie and manipulate their counter parties. Their conduct generally breaches Law Society Standards and Regulations.
Your studies do not always prepare you for the legal work environment and the demands placed on lawyers so apply for internships or work experience programmes. This will assist in understanding the profession and may highlight areas of the law you would like to focus on.
Build your CV from day one of your studies to distinguish yourself from other training lawyers.
