Weinhold Legal advises technology security start up Resistant AI
Company: Weinhold Legal, v.o.s. advokátní kancelář
Major Czech and Slovak law firm Weinhold Legal advised technology security start-up Resistant AI (formerly Bulletproof.AI) on its recent venture financing round. The co-lead investors are Credo Ventures and Index Ventures, with Seedcamp and angel investors also contributing.
Resistant AI was founded in 2019 by Cognitive Security founder Martin Rehák, together with other ex-Cognitive team members and develops systems to protect AI systems from targeted manipulation, adversarial machine learning attacks and advanced fraud. In its relatively short existence so far, Resistant AI has been engaged by a number of global businesses to advise upon their AI software security systems and to provide world-class solutions. Resistant AI, which has offices in Prague and Brussels, has grown considerably recently and will use its newly raised capital to expand its presence in the US and global software security markets.
A Weinhold Legal team led by partners Pav Younis
and Martin Lukáš
and assisted by associate David Hlaváček
, advised Resistant AI on all aspects of the financing round. Weinhold Legal had already supported Resistant AI in its founding stage. Pav Younis and his team regularly advise technology start-ups on venture capital financing rounds.
Martin Rehák, CEO of Resistant AI commented “The complexity and international nature of the financing round required lawyers familiar with international financing and the ability to work with US VC finance and transaction documents and corporate structures. Pav and the Weinhold Legal team did just that, providing sound commercial advice, flexibility of approach, with excellent response times and a great ability to work under pressure.”
