Getting a grip on legal complexity

Getting a grip on legal complexity

Visual Explainers

We help legal teams to communicate effectively about internal legal affairs. Our visuals are used to boost compliance, understand post IPO duties and communicate about corporate governance. We bring visual clarity to corporate complexity.

Get in touch

Planning a deal. Explaining governance. Implementing compliance programs.. It is hard to communicate legal complexity to the business. Visuals help to boost understanding and engagement.

Boost understanding and engagement
Increase compliance

Compliance is a matter of behaviour, not protocols. And behavioural change begins with understanding. We create clear legal documentation that is meant to be understood.


We have worked on more than 100 legal design projects. Our clients include multinationals, universities, startups and NGOs. We quickly understand the legal complexity of an organisation and create tailor made solutions that simply work.

“Telling our story in the clearest possible way”

The team of Patroon Legal Design has been of tremendous help to us in the preparation for a court hearing. We needed to guide the court through very complicated calculations. Their designs were very helpful to tell our story in the clearest possible way. Above all, the team was a joy to work with.
What makes Patroon Legal Design stand out is that they know the pressure and unpredictability of the legal practice and adapt their own schedule to accommodate our timetable.

“Visuals make a difference”

‘I always notice how visuals make a difference during litigation. The judges are often really enthusiastic if they are presented with a visual overview of a complex case. They often use these visuals as starting point during court hearing to ask questions and to arrange arguments.’

“Making complex matter comprehensible”

‘Thanks to legal design we make complex matter comprehensible. They show again and again that a contract does not have to be boring. By moving away from the current practices, legal agreements become more understandable. That is the ultimate goal: understanding each other and writing that down as simple as possible.’
