I found Creators Legal very helpful and easy to use, that’s why I subscribed for the year. I picked a contract, used the form builder then switched to the Full Editor feature to modify/add certain things that pertain to us.

I loved the fact that I could find legal agreements for all marketing areas: podcast, social media, photography and more in one place! The annual subscription is worthy because I have access to all templates. The interface is also user friendly and very easy to use!
Easy to use templates, and I like that I can quickly jump on here and send out contracts as I need them. I’ve used single contracts but it’s worth getting the subscription if you’re signing contracts regularly. Better than copy/pasting contracts as I was doing before.

This Product is Awesome! It allow me to opportunity to protect our brand with the proper legal language.
It’s definitely been the most help I have ever had for legal stuff and at a super affordable price. Reviewing their contracts made me realize many things that I was not taking into account and that, in the long run, would hurt me in my business.
An amazing platform to create all your contracts without hiring an attorney.
