Juno Legal opens full contract clause bank to local businesses

Juno Legal has opened its full contract clause bank to local businesses via an open-source platform.

The bank includes a variety of common legal clauses businesses can apply when drafting or reviewing contracts, such as dispute resolution and payment terms. The bank can be customised such that business-specific non-negotiable clauses can be compiled.

The clause bank is part of Juno Legal’s resource library, which can be accessed through the firm’s website.

“One of our core principles at Juno is to be open and generous, especially where we can make life easier for other lawyers and contract advisors working in-house. Today, we are pleased to be open sourcing our Juno Legal clause bank for businesses and public sector organisations to use, adapt and share,” said Helen Mackay, Juno Legal’s founder and director.

Mackay said that the firm was looking to continue pushing “the boundaries of what it means to be a modern legal services provider.”

“In our view, lawyers do not sell knowledge. They deliver solutions to complex problems – the knowledge is just the gateway,” she said.

Juno Legal lawyers Mitch Julian, Anthea Herron, Jenny Ross and Matt Farrington built up the clause bank in a collaborative effort.

“We’ve endeavoured to draft these clauses in an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand ‘everyday English’ style that strikes a reasonable middle ground between contracting parties,” said Farrington, who is also the firm’s legal technologist.

Juno Legal expressed its intent to update the clause bank on a regular basis, and invited users to share clauses that should be added.
