Frequently Asked Questions

A “flexible” standard contract – how does that work?

When it comes to complex contracts, we believe that “one-size-fits-all standardization” is a tough sell. Instead, Standard Draft takes a “soft standardization” approach of combining: (1) standard form contracts as a starting point, (2) drafting options to customize the contract when needed, and (3) a software solution for efficient two-sided drafting and negotiating using Standard Draft’s forms and drafting options.

We expect that most contract workflows will be as easy as “let’s agree to the Standard Draft neutral version.” But our flexible approach allows Standard Draft to be a great option even when unique facts, drafting preferences, or negotiation dynamics are present.

When can I start using Standard Draft?

We’re in closed beta for the drafting and deployment of the Standard Draft NDA. Please let us know if you’re interested in supporting our NDA efforts. We expect the Standard Draft NDA and Standard Draft’s two-sided drafting and negotiating software solution to be publicly released soon. Additional Standard Draft form contracts will follow.

Who’s creating the standardized contracts?

The Standard Draft forms, along with their corresponding drafting options, are being created by a team with decades of experience at leading AmLaw law firms including Cooley, Gibson Dunn, Latham & Watkins, and Paul Hastings. We’re assembling a cross-sector committee of lawyers and other leaders to assist in our efforts. Please let us know if you’re interested.

How much will Standard Draft cost?

Standard Draft will be competitively priced for a la carte contract workflow usage and subscription usage (contract workflows up to a maximum threshold or unlimited contract workflows).

How does Standard Draft secure my data?

Standard Draft implements industry standard best practices when storing and securing your data. Strong data storage security policies, protected interfaces, and monitored access controls ensure your privacy.

Can I integrate Standard Draft into my workflow?

Absolutely. We’re building Standard Draft to reduce and eliminate the most frustrating parts of the current contract workflow, but we’re mindful of the needs of lawyers and contract users. For example, at each step of the drafting and negotiation process on Standard Draft, users can download the in-progress contract in familiar formats like Microsoft Word and PDF. If there are any integrations that are particularly important to you, please let us know.
