About Legal

The possibility of life after death must also be considered from a legal perspective. A question that needs to be considered, for instance, is how to organize one’s estate and the investment of assets in order to be financially secure in the event of resurrection.

There basically are no countries in which the law has taken into account the fact that deceased people could be brought back to life. This is why there will be a need for major adjustments to the legal code in the future. Therefore, we’ve made it our mission to work with experts in order to identify and evaluate the weaknesses and strengths of certain legal situations.
