Why precedents matter

You are as good a lawyer as the precedents you can get.
High-quality precedents can save you up to 80% of time and effort.

Best precedents are drafted by practicing lawyers with solid experience of working with major international and local law firms. Using such precedents are significant part of such lawyers’ value proposition.

Majority of precedents are not publicly available

(1%) Publicly available precedents are just 1% of what is drafted globally. (99%) Precedents normally sit with other lawyers and rarely available to the public.

Most drafted precedents are never used more than once. However, when you need a good precedent quickly finding a good one becomes a struggle.

Precedents from public listing databases are overcomplicated, require major clean-up and mostly relate to US transactions.
