GLS Full Review™

A full contract analysis and review

The Problem

It’s a really important new commercial deal. There can be no mistakes.

Related challenges include:

  • the deal is moving fast and you face overwhelming internal pressure to respond
  • losing the deal could hit revenue and reputation hard
  • going ahead with your “eyes closed” is not an option
  • you do not have much/any capacity and your team is permanently stretched
  • there is limited budget for external support and briefing them is time consuming

Your dreams of an early night and a free weekend are fast becoming just that - dreams!

The GLS Solution


GLS Full Review™ is the ideal review solution when you need a quick, high-quality and comprehensive review of a contract. 

This solution is perfect in the following use-cases:

  • Mission Critical Contracts: get your your mission critical contracts right
  • Enhanced Review QA: “4 eye” contract reviews - yours plus ours
  • Enhanced Delegation: enabling more effective delegation to junior team members/or the internal client
  • Lawyer Contract Leverage: increase the number of contracts managed by your lawyers
  • Non Legal Owners: assisting non-lawyer stakeholders to better understand and progress negotiations of your contracts

This review solution covers not just the “deal breakers", but all major points of commercial, financial and legal risk exposure - as well as the “nice to haves”. 

The risks you face are articulated, rated by severity and presented with practical risk-mitigation options. 

The GLS Dashboard™ contract summary allows you to consume the report's full findings in under 2 minutes - what is the overall risk, top 10 issues, and “risk type” of the contract.

This solution includes our GLS SMART™ risk processor tool which allows you efficiently instruct your response to the issues identified in the report. GLS SMART™ provides the following features: 

  • Negotiation Organizer: the status of each legal issue is simple to track
  • Escalation Guidance: lets you determine what needs escalation
  • Next Response: allows you to clearly indicate how each issue should be processed
  • Negotiation Aid: the analysis is arranged to enable easy reference and to support negotiations
  • Next Draft Simplification: utilize the SMART tool to help team members (or us) to turn your next draft

The net result is a contract review solution that helps drive informed decision making and allows your legal team to be across an enormous number of contracts without themselves having to have conducted the full review. 

At a fraction of the cost of Big Law, GLS Full Review™ removes the time and cost barriers you face in fully understanding the risks of any commercial agreement.

Problem Solved.
