New “find-a-lawyer” sites are flourishing in countries like India and China as well.
Now it’s Malaysia’s turn with the launch of CanLaw, a slick new site that works on a three-stage process:
- You answer a short questionnaire
- The site provides three to five quotes from lawyers, which you review and compare
- Book an appointment with the lawyer of your choice
Vulcan Post, a Singapore-based technology news site, says that CanLaw is targeting not just individual consumers of legal services, but corporates, SMEs and startups.
CanLaw ensures that all lawyers using the site are verified by the Malaysian Bar Council, according to Vulcan Post, and CanLaw is currently seeking the Malaysian Bar Council’s approval to charge a monthly administrative fee to lawyers for using the platform.
