Why use a contract playbook?
Building guidelines and policies around contract review and your transactional practice will reduce risk, save time, and improve task execution. Best of all, all members of a legal department can get involved, from Paralegals to Senior Counsel. For businesses, it’s just common sense. You need to know where you’ll bend and on what terms. At DocJuris, we’re passionate about playbooks and how to best incorporate them into everyday review practices.
Why are you also including an Excel file?
DocJuris can import an Excel/CSV to dynamically generate a playbook in the DocJuris platform. Please get in touch to discuss! We can assist as part of onboarding and implementation.
What if the template is incomplete?
Good question — because it is! Contract playbooks in flat-file formats are inadequate and don’t integrate into the review process as they should. DocJuris drastically improves playbooking and allows you to one-click negotiate your contracts quickly and effectively.
