Success story: Re-design of an NDA


The legal department produced a large number of NDAs each year for the different business units in the company. The challenge was to design several model NDAs with a visual format and choice of language appropriate to the business.


We followed Legal Design principles to reduce the number of pages and group material dealing with the same theme using icons, geometric shapes and distinctive colours.


The time to read each contract was reduced by more than a third, the legal language was easier to understand and the confidence of the other departments was enhanced.
