We build contracts that are made to be understood.

Putting the user first in contracting.

Business contracts are often long, unstructured and hard to understand. Legal design is about improving the user experience of contracts. The way contractual terms are presented can make a real difference to engagement and comprehension. Creating clear and easy to understand contracts helps to build trust and protects brand reputation. We use plain language, add a clear structure and navigation, and use infographics to explain complex clauses. Please get in touch to see what we can do for your businesses' contracts.

Studies show that the complexity of contracts makes negotiations drag on for months, frustrating prospective customers. We see that clear and user friendly contracts lead to faster dealmaking.

Faster dealmaking
Better understanding

Most contracts are simply not designed to be read. They lack a clear structure, are hard to navigate, and require legal knowledge to understand. We believe contracts should be practical tools used by business people. Our team of lawyers and designers create contracts that are both legally robust and user friendly.

Using clear legal docs says a lot about a business. Making easy to understand contracts is an important element of customer journey design: it helps build customer trust and protects brand reputation.
