Plain language forms, contracts and policies

Lawyers give fine print a bad name. We celebrate fine print

We’re not just lawyers, we’re also information design experts, and we approach your documents armed with the latest research in business communication and design. With these insights, we create compelling communication, using video, text, audio or graphics – whatever works to make information bite-size and easy to digest.

We provide the following services:

  • We’ll analyse and diagnose your documents
  • We’ll test your documents with real humans
  • Then we’ll use what we’ve learned to design or redesign your documents (especially forms, contracts and policies)
  • We’ll develop a style guide to help you DIY your documents in future
  • We’ll help you comply with marketing law without losing sight of the sale
  • And we can teach what we preach

You think carefully about how your staff speak to customers, the kind of messages you put on Instagram or what your radio ad says – why not take the same care with your forms, contracts and fine print?

Wondering what plain language looks like? Read our website terms or privacy notice. We’ve practiced what we preach. Get in touch and let’s work together.
