Do you need help with a legal document? We draft, review, vet, advise on and negotiate legal documents. Things like agreements, contracts, templates, guides, terms and conditions, IT policies, codes and legislation. We are especially strong with:
- agreements or contracts (like IT contracts and lease agreements),
- converting existing contracts into plain language,
- localising foreign documents for local use, and
- legislation, statutes, laws, rules, codes (like the King code) and standards.
- last will and testament drafted to accommodate your digital life.
Why we will Deliver
We pride ourselves on drafting beautiful legal documents in line with International current best practice. Things like not using capital letters for defined terms and using the first person (“we” and “you”). We are experts in legal drafting and have studied all the most recent thinking and books written by most of the International experts. We are a member of Clarity International, an organisation that promotes plain legal language.
Michalsons Three-Step Drafting Process
Beautiful Documents Fast
We have developed a unique process that achieves the best results.
- Scope – We work out what type of document you need and who will read it. Is it an agreement, a letter, a guide, and opinion? What does it need to communicate to the reader? We will describe what we think you need and give you a quote of our fixed fee to draft it for you.
- Gather Information and Draft – We will ask you various questions and gather the necessary information. We draft the required document customised for you.
- Feedback – You review it, provide your feedback or approve it. We send you a final version ready for use.
The result is a great legal document that builds relationships and prevents disputes.
