If contracts were standardised

Imagine a world where all contracts are ultra-standardised.

  • Data capture becomes incredibly easy; each document is the same.
  • Operational overhead from contracts is drastically reduced; you can treat all contracts the same.
  • Deals get done faster and cheaper; no expensive negotiations.


  • The important deals won’t get done; they almost always require flexibility around the specifics of the situation.
  • Lawyers won’t get paid as much; we can’t let that happen!
