As we are frequently emailed for advice on making minor amendments to our contracts and forms, we have decided to offer some free legal advice, support and review on-line of your own amendment drafting and negotiation of Computalaw's Contracts and forms purchased from our website.

Our website is your database

The mission of our website is to provide you with a useful, always available, comprehensive database of legal contracts and forms; a database which will be constantly added to by the experts in our team as new contracts and forms are required to cater for the ever changing landscape of our industry, especially in e-commerce. This is our goal for the foreseeable future. So, we hope that you find our new website pleasing to look at and easy to use.
