(Hong Kong, 22 December 2021) eBRAM International Online Dispute Resolution Centre Limited (“eBRAM”) is pleased to announce the signing of the memorandum of understanding (“MoU”) with the Department of Justice on 22 December 2021. Pursuant to the MoU, eBRAM will provide the local legal and dispute resolution communities with highly secured data storage services through the legal cloud platform, enabling users to enhance their capability in harnessing modern technologies.
The Secretary for Justice, Ms Teresa Cheng, SC, remarked that the MoU signing affirmed both organisations’ commitment to developing the Hong Kong Legal Cloud and consolidating Hong Kong’s role as a leading LawTech hub globally. She is confident that the concerned services would benefit the legal sector, especially the small- and medium-sized law firms, to help them seize opportunities arising from the digital new normal.
Speaking after the signing ceremony, Dr Thomas So, Chairman of eBRAM, noted that “eBRAM is honored to participate in this public-private partnership and contribute to strengthen Hong Kong’s position as an international legal hub. This not only marks an important milestone in Hong Kong’s LawTech development but also serves as a catalyst for the local legal and dispute resolution professionals to leverage technologies to create agility.”
The pilot run of the Legal Cloud Services will be launched before the end of January 2022, whereas the production rollout will be in March 2022. In addition, eBRAM plans to introduce the APEC ODR platform, a dealing-making platform and more LawTech services in the coming year.
