A Special Mention

Tech for more productive interaction with clients: A good example is VanillaLaw™ Docs, an interactive web-based platform created by Singapore law firm, VanillaLaw™ LLC. VanillaLaw™ LLC developed their own online contract template which, when used together with this platform, allows their clients to insert relevant information to prepare the first draft of legal documents.

The law firm reviews this and focuses on issues requiring legal advice and drafting amendments. The end product is still cleared by qualified lawyers but this technology enabled process cuts down the need for multiple or long meetings to take instructions. This saves time and costs for firm and clients.

I am very happy to have met Mark & Boon Gan. This is the first time I meet lawyers who are so open with NO hidden agenda. Boon Gan…Amazing Guy! He brainstormed there and then with Mark.

Having the support of both the business and legal teams as I planned my business was a crucial element to ensuring I got off on the right foot. Through their advice and experience, we were able to properly assess the legitimacy of certain partnerships, and successfully steered clear of some red flags.

The seamless teamwork and the level of professionalism is something I deeply appreciate. It is clear that the teams at GoSME and VanillaLaw™ are passionate and sincere about their goal to support SMEs.


Dr. Jessherin Sidhu
Medical Practitioner / Founder

Working with the VanillaLaw™ and the GoSME teams has been a great experience. Not only did we tackle my legal needs, but we also worked on the business side of things. It was very effective and informative, working with a legal and a business team and seeing how law and business intersects – I really learned a lot.

We had a matter which went on to the mediation platform. The law firm assisted us to reach a prompt and fair settlement. The outcome of the mediation had a very positive effect on our company. The law firm handled our case in an extremely competent and professional manner.

Contracts are drafted to prepare a business owner for the worst case scenario. If that happens, you become vulnerable… and can potentially ruin the business. VanillaLaw™ Docs is aimed at helping SMEs who cannot afford in-house lawyers.
