I recently worked with a client to make their contract more engaging and to make to easier for their clients to be confident of understanding the content while signing the agreement.
The problem is that non-law folks don't want to sign a 20 page document that they don't understand. This leads to a lot of back and forth which delays contract execution and ultimately leads to loss of business in the worst case scenario.
We decided to redo the contract with a new mindset. Our objective was to make the contract more readable, thereby reducing the time it took to onboard clients.
As a result, the 20 pages of legalese was broken down into 10 pages of plain language text (Work in progress) that is easy to read. Attached below are some excerpts from the agreement!
Not all Legal agreements need to look boring! Legal can be simple.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
