Location: Orlando, Florida, United States

Anessa Allen Santos, founding Attorney of IntelliLaw, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in human rights law through the practice of business law for emerging technology companies, namely, those developing blockchain and financial technology applications and solutions for the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Ms. Allen Santos was first inspired to pursue the practice of human rights law during her undergraduate studies at Wright State University that focused on international diplomacy and human rights. Upon earning a JD from the University of Dayton School of Law and admission to the Florida Bar, her first job as a licensed attorney was in criminal defense with the Office of the Public Defender. Although unexpected, this position provided her with invaluable experience learning how to secure fundamental rights for the most vulnerable populations. In this position, she was first introduced to the plight of the migrant worker which has motivated her to pursue further career development in the areas of blockchain and financial technology that affords financial inclusion to all, regardless of social status and economic ability. In this respect, she studied these subjects at Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford. In 2015, Ms. Allen Santos founded IntelliLaw, a law firm that provides consummate business counsel to businesses worldwide in blockchain and fintech, corporate transactions, intellectual property and securities.

Prior to founding IntelliLaw, Ms. Allen Santos garnered experience as a General Counsel of Buffalo Pacific LLC, Iformata Communications LLC, ReddTrust LLC (2009) and Destiny Conferencing LLC. In addition to maintaining her current practice, she endeavors to launch an education campaign designed to democratize access to the practice of business law by equipping and empowering American entrepreneurs with the information and know-how they need to develop successful businesses that largely disintermediates the need for business attorneys. It is anticipated that the campaign will involve books, seminars and an online virtual training curriculum. In 2020, she published “What’s the Big Deal About Blockchain” in the peer-reviewed Florida Bar Journal. Considered one of the most eminent legal professionals on blockchain and financial technology, she has spoken internationally and on several news programs, and was recognized among Orlando’s Legal Elite in 2018.
