Startup Veterans Launch Outlaw to Humanize Contracts

Outlaw raises $500K for a modern contract platform to help businesses close deals faster using plain English.

New York, NY, March 16, 2018 --( Nothing kills the excitement of doing a business deal like staring down a mountain of paperwork. What’s worse, legal jargon is so confusing that it slows deals down — and sometimes even trashes them entirely.

Outlaw supercharges companies’ existing contracts from unmanageable, static stacks of paper into dynamic templates that are a breeze to edit, share, negotiate and sign in real-time. With features like plain English summaries and smart authoring tools, Outlaw help companies do business faster and with more transparency.

The contract platform operates on a subscription model and is already improving sales, HR and operations across a range of industries — including real estate, consultancies, media and events.

But hang on, how exactly does it work? They break it down for you in plain English:

1. Lightning-Fast Drafting & Custom Templates
Fill-in-the-blank authoring tool customizes contracts in seconds.

2. Plain English Summaries
Overviews offer translated summaries without legalese.

3. End-to-End Deal Flow
Multi-party sharing, commenting and digital signing accelerate the legal process.

Outlaw was designed with transparency and cooperation in mind. “Contracts are relationships,” co-founder Evan Schneyer explains. “Because legalese is so intimidating, people lose sight of that essence. We started Outlaw to breathe mutual trust and understanding — the basis of successful relationships — back into contracts.”

Evan is an ex-Googler and founder of Wanderfly, a travel recommendation engine acquired by TripAdvisor. This is his second startup together with co-founder Dan Dalzotto, a digital product designer. Rounding out the Outlaws is Ricardo Lopez, founder of Vertitrade. They have raised a seed round of $500,000.
