ResoX joins the legal tech start-up industry as a free for use global online dispute resolution platform. It provides disputants with information and guidance when faced with a dispute; as well as connects disputants easily with compatible dispute resolution professionals (DRPs) whom they can choose to engage.
The First Stop When Facing a Dispute
Small and medium businesses, troubled families, and the common man on the street are often distressed when faced with a brewing dispute. If they choose ResoX as their first stop, they will benefit from 3 basic features. First, ResoX Search simplifies the process of looking for suitable DRPs using a robust search algorithm. Second, ResoX Dispute Advisor gently assists disputants to consider the appropriate dispute resolution processes (negotiation, mediation, arbitration, litigation). Third, ResoX cost-effective options page summarises a country’s institutions and schemes that offer low-cost or subsidised rates for dispute resolution.
In the past 3 weeks of DRP membership registration, ResoX has gotten the vote of confidence from a group of Singapore lawyers, mediators, arbitrators and conflict coaches, most of whom have been active in collaborative problem-solving for most of their careers. A number of reputable international mediators have also signed up. Co-founders Linda Heng and Colin Millward are confident of the value this versatile group of DRPs can bring to disputants.
Ms Linda Heng, co-founder and CEO says, “People embroiled in disputes find themselves on an emotional rollercoaster and would appreciate a reasoned, impartial but empathetic guiding hand to help them navigate through the rough waters ahead. With rapid digitalisation and online consumer trends, ResoX aims to be that first port of call for disputants to look for professional help easily, so as to reach resolution efficiently and cost-effectively.”
Future development plans include integrating online dispute resolution functions, as well as other legal technology plug-ins. ResoX hopes to be a complementary platform to the many e-commerce sites available today. It is the founders’ vision to develop this platform first in Singapore, an international dispute resolution hub, before rolling out to regional countries and beyond.
