Assegaf Hamzah & Partners (AHP), one of the biggest law firms in Indonesia, recently participated in the Pre-Series A funding of Justika.com (Justika), the pioneer of legal services marketplace start-up in Indonesia.
AHP’s Managing Partner, Bono Daru Adji, remarked that AHP’s participation in Justika is part of its contribution in pushing for wider and easier access to legal services from professional advocates to the public.
Bono remarked that “to date, one of the biggest problems in Indonesia is the public’s lack of knowledge or difficulty in accessing legal services from professional advocates. AHP decided to invest in Justika to actively resolve this issue”, (22/01).
Bono continued, “the main reason why we chose Justika as a partner is because besides being the pioneer of the start-up market place for legal service, Justika also provides quick access to experienced professional advocates based on a fixed price. Advocates also benefit as they can develop their legal services to reach the wider community without being limited by space and time.”
Furthermore, Bono added that Justika is supported by a combination of a qualified technological product team and a line of experienced professional advocates. “AHP also recognises the importance of legal-tech’s role in the future. We believe that innovation in technology can become one of the solutions to increase access to legal services for the Indonesian public,” Bono concluded.
