GLS Legal Template Standardisation™

Standardizing your legal contracts

The Problem

Your business is not using standardized “legal document templates”.

Related challenges include: 

  • inconsistent legal documentation delivers inconsistent legal/compliance risk management
  • the look and feel of your documents is inconsistent and that is brand diminishing
  • inconsistent templates and font styles regularly causes document corruption
  • utilising legacy documentation cause significant mistakes to perpetuate
  • business wide training becomes harder to implement efficiently
  • reviewing documents produced by your own business can still be an unfamiliar exercise
  • negotiations are being delayed because of poor documentation starting points

You know that standardised legal documents can deliver efficiencies to your business, but you are too busy to launch the initiative and external support has always been cost prohibitive. 

Whilst you know what you want, wouldn’t it be ideal if someone could come in and take care of the exercise for you?

The GLS Solution

GLS Legal Template Standardisation™ can help you standardise any collection of documentation that you require – regardless of size or language. 

GLS has deployed GLS Legal Template Standardisation™ for some of the largest organisations in the world, routinely completing in excess of 300 documents within a single project. 

GLS Legal Template Standardisation™ is the perfect solution for most standardisation scenarios including:

  • application of house style / “look & feel”
  • underlying template versions / dynamic style set adjustments
  • spot clause updates (eg GDPR, ABC updates)
  • standardisation of clause ordering
  • application of standardised clauses
  • interpretation/application of group legal position
  • standardisation of Schedules/Appendices

There is nothing glamorous about a standardisation exercises but working with standardised documents significantly adds to the productivity yield of those that use them.

Problem solved.
