Documents to be proud of

Produce beautifully formatted client-facing, courtroom ready documents that are as easy to read as they are compliant.

Documents Isometric

Your brand
Maintain brand consistency by adding your firm’s logos, colours and fonts to both instruction-taking forms and documents.

Your style
The way you format documents reflects the style of your firm. Implement a consistent practice-wide style guide for headings, bullets, numbers, columns and more.

Courtroom Ready
As our documents are continually updated, they are always courtroom ready.

Documents Isometric


Underpinned by integrations

We are waging war on rekeying. Integrate with your practice management system (PMS) for matter details, Google Maps for accurate addresses and the Australian Business Register for the correct company details.

At the end of the process save your completed documents directly to your document management system (DMS).

Automation is now an essential component of any firm's legal tech stack.

Intake Mobile


Reshape your client engagement and move instruction taking online

Intake Mobile

Invite your clients
Why wait for a face-to-face meeting? Have your clients complete an online Q+A on any device. Your clients can provide you with the exact instructions you need for their matter.

Instantly Notified
Stay on top of your client work by being notified as soon as your client has completed the form.

Automatically Populated Forms
Never rekey again. All of the instructions your client has provided are automatically added to document in Smarter Drafter. The pre-population of instruction data will dramatically reduce your drafting time.


Create complex legal documents in a fraction of the time

Documents Dashboard

Built-in Guidance
Be taken step-by-step through every document. The online Q+A form dynamically adapts to your answers and prompts you for everything needed to complete the document. Be supported with on-screen prompts, tips and definitions.

Track your progress
See exactly where you’re up to. Jump back, move forwards or save and resume at a later stage. Don’t have the information you need? Add a placeholder and pick up drafting from exactly where you left it.

The right data, every time
Think beyond matter information and integrations with your practice management solution. Smarter Drafter’s online Q+A form checks addresses against Google Maps and ABN details with the Australian Business Registry for absolute accuracy every time. In-built data validation also ensures your dates and calculations are always right.

Documents Dashboard


Submissions Dashboard



Manage every aspect of document creation from one location

Submissions Dashboard

A practice-wide list
Irrespective of its status, every client document generated in your firm is listed in one location. Simply glance to see the document name, date, type and status.

Search, Sort and Filter
Locate documents in seconds. Using search, sorting and filtering, find the document you need. Whether it was created last week, last month or last year.

Why recreate, when you can clone
Want to give your clients options and create alternate versions of a contract. Don’t rekey, simply clone the document and start with the client data already in the form.

Make the document yours
Not only can you brand and style your documents to meet your practice needs, you can also download completed documents to MS Word to make any final adjustments.


Remove the bottleneck of 'wet' signatures

eSignatures Dashboard

One-Click send
