It is always with strong faith and courage that an entrepreneur manages to navigate through ups and downs along the way.As in the case of Ryanne, Co-founder of Dragon Law, focusing on value creation for SMEs through digitising legal services is the driving force behind her tireless effort.
After graduating from law school, Ryanne joined an international law firm for a few years where she observed the difficulties and challenges SMEs face in relation to legal issues. Many would often decide not to use professional legal services to save on fees without understanding the risks involved. Inspired by the SMEs cases at work, and with her passion for technology, Ryanne decided to make a change – she joined hands with her partners to set up Dragon Law as an online platform that offers legal tools.
With great effort, Ryanne and her team are able to digitise legal services that address the unique needs of SMEs. The Dragon Law platform provides businesses with legal tools and contract workflows, and a live chat tool for seeking legal advice from qualified lawyers outside of Dragon Law. All of these services are offered professionally and conveniently, at a fixed monthly fee that is more transparent and predictable. This way, Ryanne transforms the legal industry by unbundling legal services through digital technology.
During its inception stage, Dragon Law got connected to its first batch of customers with support from Cyberport. Today, the company has established its market presence, attracting users from both SMEs and large corporations. With its business growing rapidly, the company has also set up branch offices in Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
Looking back at her decision to jump out of her comfort zone and venture into a start-up business, Ryanne said, “I do not focus only on gains and results. What I care most is, whether this is something meaningful, and whether this creates value for others.”
Acting upon her ideas, Ryanne proves to us that, as we dare to venture, we are already halfway through the journey to realise our dreams.
