About us - the background to the Contractzone team of Contract Lawyers.
Four years ago our team of legal professionals got together and brainstormed the future of the legal profession. They foresaw that technology would play a vital role in the future of the profession and were determined to participate in the evolved industry. Armed with Masters degrees in commercial law they set about the process of building a platform that would offer affordable Online Legal Contracts to the public online.
When we say affordable, we mean it. Mostly, our clients prefer the subscription model, where they can gain unlimited access to the platform for as little as R899 per month (almost the cost of a telephone call to your attorney).
Today Contractzone is a proud member of the Metrofile group of Companies. We have over 100 Online Legal Contracts available on the Contractzone system. The contracts have all been drafted, reviewed and updated by our team of Contract Lawyers.
