How I Help: Contracts without Legalese
The law doesn’t require contracts to be in Legalese.
The owner of a logistics company spent weeks negotiating each contract because the terms were so long and convoluted, they created more delay and disputes than they resolved.
I shortened the contract from 20 pages to 5 by changing the legalese to normal, understandable, language and removing unnecessary duplication. New clients sign this agreement in two days, instead of waiting two weeks for their lawyer to review it.
Contracts should be clear and sometimes that requires legalese, but not often. I consider a well-drafted contract to be a combination of both art and precision.
How long does it takes you to review an average contract?
