GLS Procurement Best Practice Precedent Library™

Establishing a world-class procurement template library

The Problem

The condition of your procurement focused legal templates is hurting your business.   

Related challenges include:  

  • your templates do not reflect group legal policy
  • drafting agreements "on the run" takes far too long
  • bad templates create systemic deal inefficiencies
  • your templates are not considered user friendly
  • your templates are too hard/slow to negotiate
  • people now use their own "unapproved" templates
  • recycled documents are replicating past mistakes
  • your contract templates could never be automated

You remain too busy to produce the templates you desparately need.
