GLS Legal Proofreading™

Per page document proofreading

The Problem

You need a contract you know you can sign - but you don't have the time.

Related challenges include:

  • typos are a professional embarrassment
  • page blindness ultimately affects everyone – even you
  • the capacity of you and your team is permanently stretched
  • there is limited budget for external support and no time to instruct

Can you afford to produce less than perfect work? Time to put the kettle on.

The GLS Solution

A GLS Best Seller

This GLS best selling solution keeps the lawyers lawyering.

Lawyers did not go to university in order to learn how to proofread - their primary focus is and must be to apply the law in creative and productive ways - not to spend hours de-weeding documents of typographical and other avoidable errors.

GLS Legal Proofreading™ delivers a confidential, comprehensive and accessible proofreading solution that achieves documentation excellence and eliminates unnecessary costs from document production.

Through GLS Legal Proofreading™, we offer a 21-point contract review methodology, which emphasizes the accuracy and readability of your documents to enable a clear contractual understanding between the parties.

At a fraction of the cost of Big Law, GLS Legal Proofreading™ removes time and cost as barriers to meticulous and unambiguous documents.

Problem solved.
