Welcome to Legaleasy
At Legaleasy we are focused on creating easy-to-understand, plain English legal templates to help you understand your legal obligations and protect your business.
All of our templates are written by qualified lawyers and are designed specifically to protect Australian based small businesses.
We cover a wide range of topics including intellectual property, service terms and conditions, privacy, corporate governance, and business structuring. Our goal is to help you feel confident that you have the right legal contracts in place to support your business needs.

The number of templates you can download for free will depend on your level of membership.
We may deliver webinars from time to time to answer any questions our members have. You are required to participate at the time they are offered. There will be no refunds or discount if you are unable to attend a webinar.
The resources in your member portal do not expire. You get unlimited access to everything inside your portal for the length of your membership.
Individual components of the program are not redeemable, transferable, or interchangeable.
We reserve the right to change or remove any content from your member portal at any time without notice.

Suspension, termination and refund
