How to get away with reducing legal document preparation time

How to get away with reducing legal document preparation time

Thomson Reuters and Cleardocs

Thomson ReutersCleardocs


participant in recent Australian small law firm research study conducted by growth and insights consultancy Forethought, placed emphasis on industry time constraints and ever-growing compliance needs “...every year we produce as much legislation as we produced in the first 200 years of Australia.


Australia’s first to market online legal document generation business, Cleardocs, has an online solution which allows legal practitioners to quickly set up companies, trusts and SMSFs. The legal document creation solution also includes an Estate Planning offering, which consists of wills and power of attorneys.

Cleardocs are among the few online legal document providers who work with a top 20 Australian law firm (Maddocks) – ensuring documents comply strictly with legal requirements and keep up-to-date with changing laws.

Cleardocs have been a leading provider of online legal documents since 2002 and with 70,000 users, has facilitated over $2.3b* worth of SMSF borrowing.

Cleardocs understand that efficiencies are important to legal practitioners.

 “SK Lawyers first started using Cleardocs in 2011. We decided to try the Cleardocs online service because we needed a single point of call in a document creation provider and Cleardocs seemed to offer that.

Since then, we have been completely satisfied with the Cleardocs solution. At SK Lawyers, we have heavy traffic and expanding needs for the establishment of SMSF and Corporate Trustee, SMSF bank borrowing and Company Registration. We continue to use Cleardocs because we don’t have the resources to keep up with legislation and draft our own deeds in-house, and compliance is a priority for us.” ~ Peter Kuskie, Partner, SK Lawyers.

Cleardocs users receive legal document creation time-saving benefits like:
• 24/7 access to over 130 ready-to-sign documents;
• access to a document creation interface that’s both quick and easy to use;
• sample documents;
• free online resources and FALQs; and
• the ability to create, manage and store in the cloud.

The Cleardocs interface is easy to navigate, incorporating help text and useful resources. Should users require assistance with any of the documents, they offer a free legal helpline 1300 307 343.
