Legal and Business Writing

How many times do you rework a document? 

Good legal writing adds value. It requires less rework. It takes less time to read and produce. And most importantly, it communicates your message to clients and colleagues clearly, concisely and accurately (unlike the sign—read to the end to find out why).  

The result of good writing: fewer errors, less rework and faster turnaround times.

And about that sign? If you want to eat in this restaurant, you'd better bring your pet.  It's pretty clear: no pets, no service! Somehow, we don't think that's exactly what the owner intended.
