Interview with Jeremy Tan

What will the law firm of the future look like? 

The law firm of the future will look more like a technology company, offering clients a platform for legal advice and more.

What has been your most memorable moment as a lawyer?

Completing a project for a greenfield telecoms network roll out in Myanmar, which made the internet accessible  to the broader population. Seeing how the internet and greater connectivity has improved the lives of people in Myanmar is probably as fulfilling as it gets for a TMC lawyer. It was very much a once-in-a-lifetime experience as there are few countries without access to the internet. 

If you weren’t a lawyer, how would you earn your living? 

I love good food (a little too much) and cooking. So, I would earn my living as a chef running a small, intimate restaurant.
