Former Hogans Lovells attorney Artur Bilski has left that firm to join Ramp as General Counsel.
According to the Ramp website, the company, which was established in Warsaw in 2017, "aims at creating easily accessible connection between the open blockchain financial system and the old, closed banking system."
“In my view blockchain and smart contracts are the future of the financial sector and Ramp uses these unique technological solutions to provide decentralized escrow mechanisms, enabling secure FIAT to crypto exchanges,” Bilski said. “Inspired by these new products I decided to use this unique opportunity to transfer to the fintech sector in order to stay closer to the business and be part of that bright future.”
Bilski has over six years of experience in legal advisory and banking, with a focus on Banking, Capital Markets, Consumer Protection, Corporate Law, and Financial Regulations practices. Before joining Hogan Lovells in 2016 he worked for two and a half years with Clifford Chance and one and a half years as an analyst in the ECM & Corporate Finance Department of PKO Bank Polski, among other positions.
Bilski studied finance at the Warsaw School of Economics, foreign policy at the Polish Institute of International Affairs, and political science and law at the University of Warsaw.
