ASIA LAW NETWORK CELEBRATES THIRD ANNIVERSARY WITH REGIONAL EXPANSION OF QUICK CONSULT SERVICE
Singapore, 11 December 2017 – In celebration of its third anniversary, Singapore’s first online database of lawyers, AsiaLawNetwork.com, is expanding its offering and providing legal access across the region via its Quick Consult service. A low-risk first step in resolving legal issues, Quick Consult allows individuals and businesses to connect with experienced lawyers for a 15-minute phone consultation from just S$49. Now, other than Singapore, customers can seek legal advice in five additional countries including Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia and Indonesia.
Responding to requests from consumers, Asia Law Network is also offering expertise on a wider range of issues under the personal and business categories. For example, aside from matters such as divorce and commercial disputes, customers can now look to Asia Law Network for consultation on topics ranging from LGBT issues, Syraiah and Shariah Law as well as business matters like competition law and contract disputes. This is driven by the mission to provide wider access to justice.
Indulekshmi Rajeswari, project lead, Same but Different: An LGBT Legal Guide for Couples and Families says, “When we started the guidebook, we wanted to empower LGBT couples and families with information and ways to address the legal issues commonly faced by them in Singapore. Partnering with Asia Law Network will allows us to raise the visibility and awareness of LGBT-friendly legal services, giving the LGBT community more confidence when seeking access to justice.
AsiaLawNetwork CEO and Founder Cherilyn Tan says, “Asia Law Network has grown rapidly over the last year by being the only marketing platform for lawyers approved under the Tech Start for Law Scheme by Ministry of Law, Law Society of Singapore and SPRING Singapore. We believe we’ve made an impact here in Singapore – increasing access to justice for those in need, and doing it in a more affordable and accessible manner. We’re very excited to not only be expanding our offering and giving more people the help they need to deal with the legal issues they are facing, but also growing the industry with tech-focused solutions for lawyers around the region.”
Since its launch over a year ago, Quick Consult has connected over thousands of businesses and individuals with professional legal advice from certified practicing lawyers in the industry.
Commenting on his experience with the service, Kshitij Golwalker, entrepreneur, says “We needed to learn more about data privacy for our start-up and decided to try out Asia Law Network’s Quick Consult service. It was incredibly easy, the experience seamless and very cost-effective. Our lawyer called us the next day and answered all our questions. He was very professional and not pushy, and focused on helping us figure out what to do next.”
Ryo Kodama, who required advice on housing matters, says, “I had an issue with my landlord that had been bothering me for some time. Seeking legal advice from lawyers seemed intimidating and wasn’t an option until I learned about ALN’s Quick Consult service. I talked with two different lawyers – both offered me fast, accurate, and quality advice at an extremely affordable price.”
Industry practitioners have also found value in the service which not only offers leads that help grow the business, but also an efficient, effective and user-friendly system that streamlines the process of working with new clients.
WanHsi Yeong, Managing Director, ArrowGates LLC, says, “When I started my boutique law practice, I was looking for a way to better and more efficiently deliver legal services to my clients and find new clients. After being on the platform for a few quarters now, I find myself pleased with how ALN has helped my practice grow. Their Quick Consult has made it easy for clients to get in touch with me, and I don’t have worry about collecting since it is prepaid. It’s also useful to have visibility of the most essential background facts laid out before speaking to the client. Being on the network has helped us in an immense way and accelerated what I could have achieved organically on our own.”
