Cambodia’s leading incubator and market entry firm Confluences announced their new venture with Belaws on July 17 at a ceremony at the Confluences office, formalising the startup’s expansion into the Cambodian market!
Belaws, with current operations in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Singapore and France, is now looking to provide their services in Cambodia as well! Business owners look forward to using their digital platform that can connect them to a pool of hand-picked lawyers locally and even across borders according to their needs. Confluences’ existing extensive network also provides transparency, fitting business-oriented lawyers according to clients’ interests.
“At Belaws we work as an international law firm, meaning we get the best lawyers with the best practices and put them on the platform. The fact that we filter, or we request [for lawyers] according to expertise, means we ensure the credibility and quality of the lawyers. In terms of pricing as well, as we skip the partner costs and the law firm costs, we have a big margin to play with, so we can give back more value to the clients, as well as the lawyers,” explained Mr Vincent Birot, CEO and Co-founder of Belaws.
Cambodian businesses can also enjoy benefits across the region by accessing their dashboard online, a place where they can handle all their legal matters across countries as lawyers can communicate internationally for cross-border cases. Lawyers, who are chosen according to a series of strict criteria such as English proficiency and business-orientedness, will ensure that the quality of services are consistent even from country to country.
“Our partnership with Belaws is logical, as Confluences is already offering a full set of services to our clients, directly or using third parties for legal or tax needs for example. Belaws should help us automatise and simplify working flows, this will make things easier for the final client, but also for us as service provider. Belaws should become a one-stop services solutions, here in Cambodia and in the neighboring countries. That should help us attract more investments and investors to Cambodia, making it easier to run a company and its daily administrative and legal tasks,” expressed Mr Soreasmey Ke Bin, founder of Confluences.
With a wide range of expertise laying in areas such as Intellectual Property, Accounting and Tax, Commercial Agreements and Merger & Acquisition, Belaws is here to streamline legal and corporate services in the Kingdom and beyond.
