ArentFox Schiff Chairman Anthony V. Lupo was featured in a Q&A about the firm’s Metaverse office opening.

First reported by The American Lawyer, the firm’s new office located in the Luxury Fashion District of Decentraland makes ArentFox Schiff the first major US law firm to build and launch an office in the virtual world.

Tony discussed why the firm decided now was the right time to open an office in the Metaverse.
