Rajah & Tann Launches ReadyDocs Digital Platform for Managing Legal Services in Real Time
Rajah & Tann Asia, a leading full-service legal network in Southeast Asia, announced today the beta launch of ReadyDocs, a platform that enables clients to remotely create, edit, digitally sign and manage Rajah & Tann contracts from any device at any time.
This law-as-a-service (LaaS) platform provides real-time access to legal services for Rajah & Tann’s clients. ReadyDocs empowers small- and medium-sized business owners, startup founders and general counsel to work on time-critical contracts as soon as the need arises, with the security that all documents generated on the platform come with the quality assurance of Rajah & Tann Asia.
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,”
ReadyDocs is powered by Zegal, a software solution which puts the client at the heart of the platform. Clients can use the platform to generate commercial contracts; entire suites of contracts built as easy-to-follow workflows; or even automate their existing contracts and processes.
Daniel Walker, Zegal’s founder, 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 Asia is recognising the importance of delivering that amazing experience.”
The ReadyDocs platform will target the Singapore market first with plans to quickly roll out to all jurisdictions being served by Rajah & Tann.
Terence Quek, Partner of the M&A Practice at Rajah & Tann Singapore said: “Our clients are becoming increasingly savvy and there is a growing demand for quick and convenient access to legal services. ReadyDocs will be the go-to platform for our clients to get access to quality documents vetted by Rajah & Tann, and be able to manage all of their contracts over a single platform.”
Jonathan Yuen, Head of Legal Basix at Rajah & Tann Singapore adds: “Many SMEs are keen to self-service their baseline legal documentation but often find themselves unable to execute these tasks with confidence and assurance. The ReadyDocs platform leverages on technology to provide our clients with the best of both worlds—direct access to Rajah & Tann’s wealth of resources and advice from our experienced lawyers.”
