I have worked principally in the finance sector ranging from leasing to venture capital and investment in a wide range of industries. Being involved in structuring and negotiating transactions, drafting and amending documents to fit each deal/circumstance has always been part of my job specifications.

From such experiences I learnt that huge saving could be made for businesses of all sizes to draft their own documents (especially for standard business and employment relationships) by combining up-to-date and simply drafted legal document templates with the commercial knowledge of business owners and managers so that they can be empowered to negotiate and produce their own documents without the costs associated with using solicitors.

Uniquely, we have always maintained a subscription model, producing hundreds of documents for the price of one! Since 2003, Simply-docs have quadrupled the size of the portfolio of legal business templates, at the same time constantly reviewing and updating that portfolio, without an increase in prices. This determination to provide enhanced value from the subscriptions is integral to the development and success of the Simply-docs service. All our documents are drafted by our in-house team of experienced solicitors, HR and Health & Safety experts.

Simply-docs has grown steadily by maintaining a very simple philosophy of always delivering value.
