The Problem

Related challenges include:

  • they are too difficult to understand
  • they take too long to negotiate
  • counterparties find that they are not user friendly
  • incidences of contract failure are higher than you would like
  • contracts are not performing as well as you want
  • the internal client has been complaining
  • too much “legalese” merely doubles the lawyers’ fees
  • your team’s drafting would be hard to automate

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get your team drafting in Plain English?
