ASEAN regional law firm, Rajah & Tann and Hong Kong headquartered legal tech company, Zegal have partnered up to launch ReadyDocs, a platform that enables clients to remotely create, edit, digitally sign and manage contracts from any device in any time.
ReadyDocs is a law-as-a-service (LaaS) platform providing real-time access to legal services and will debut in Singapore first before being rolled out across ASEAN. The platform empowers small- and medium-sized business owners, startup founders and general counsel to work on time-critical contracts as soon as the need arises.
Abdul Jabbar, Head of Corporate and Transactional Group of Rajah & Tann Singapore said: “As new technological innovations become available, law firms must leverage them to meet the evolving demands of our clients. Rajah & Tann is excited to launch this platform as a much-needed solution, especially during this time when remote interactions are becoming the norm and clients need to be able to access their documents on the go,”
Rajesh Sreenivasan, Head of the TMT Practice at Rajah & Tann Singapore adds: “As a firm, we are looking beyond providing legal solutions. We are offering business solutions to help our clients better manage their legal costs by integrating technology with our services. ReadyDocs is one such solution that will empower our clients to take control of their legal workflow,”
Powered by Zegal, ReadyDocs will allow users to generate commercial contracts; entire suites of contracts built as easy-to-follow workflows; or even automate their existing contracts and processes.
Daniel Walker, founder of Zegal said: “Rajah & Tann Asia is leading the adoption of LegalTech in Asia, and we could not be more excited that they have chosen our platform.
“Legal technology is not just limited to improving lawyers’ efficiency. It can and should make clients say ‘wow!’. By deploying a client-facing platform, Rajah & Tann is recognising the importance of delivering that amazing experience.”
Hung Chou Tai, CEO of Zegal said "We are extremely excited with this collaboration with Rajah & Tann, ReadyDocs will be the first platform of this kind to allow the law firm to directly collaborate with their clients online"
