Being a big enthusiast, Roman has inspired the very creation of the FLR project and gave it enourmous support, despite the fact that fashion is  way too far from being called his greatest passion. As a lawyer Roman is specilizing in corporate law, intellectual property law, financial technologies and innovations. Roman has been a counsel to a number of succesfull starups in legal and business related matters, and probably will be the first lawyer who will fly to space.
