Using legal document templates allows you to save both time and money. The key is to know when to use them, and when it’s a better idea to work directly with a lawyer. In many circumstances it can be a good idea to work on legal document templates yourself, get the basics right, and then get a lawyer to check over your work. We can help you with all 3 options.

For many businesses there are a few key documents you should keep handy and use on a consistent basis. If you regularly employ new staff, it makes sense to use the same Employment Contract for each of them, as long as they are all employed on the same basis (i.e. full time/ award etc…). If you regularly work with contractors, using a template Contractors Contract also makes sense. Another good example of one of the legal document templates you could consider using is a Confidentiality Agreement. If you’re in a business that regularly needs to ensure associates keep information confidential, then you can usually reuse a standard Confidentially Agreement. Obviously you can get free legal document templates online for a number of documents. The problem with free legal document templates is that their quality can be very patchy. Furthermore, it can be quite a pain to go through the process of filling in the blanks yourself. Our simple and easy to use online interview system allows you to fill in the relevant details, and have our software build your document for you. Easy! It is important to note once again, however, that in certain circumstances you should work with a lawyer. Legal document templates will not be sufficient. If your matter is complex and not run of the mill it’s really the only sensible option. Thankfully we can help you with this as well; our network of lawyers all work online or have very low overheads. We can therefore provide you with legal services for a much lower price than a traditional “bricks and mortar” style firm.
