Today’s economy is described as volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous - and many of the supporting commercial contracts can be similarly described.  However, there is progress being made in making contracts easy to read.  Instead of contracts being written for attorneys, in ways which only attorneys can comprehend, the shift is towards contracts that users can understand.  Clear contracts create value and reduce the risk of disputes.   Learn how to create this new type of contract – the easy-to-read contract.
