Keep in mind, these documents aren’t a replacement for working with your own legal expert, but they’re designed to give you a running start and help you quickly have a solid, expert-approved first draft agreement.

You can use them in Common Paper’s contract management platform, but they’ve also made them available completely free under the Creative Commons 4.0 license as PDF, DOCX, HTML, and Markdown files. That means you can safely download the documents and modify them for your own business!
