I’m at LegalTech New York. Oh, and You Can Now Get a Free One-Year Trial Subscription to Koncision’s Confidentiality-Agreement Template

Today (Monday, January 30) and tomorrow I’ll be at LegalTech New York, one of legions manning the new, double-wide Business Integrity booth (324/326). If you’d like to have a chat, call or text me at (516) 318-6956, email me, direct-message me on Twitter at @KonciseD, send smoke signals …

One bit of news we’ll be imparting to visitors to Business Integrity’s booth is that Koncision is now offering free one-year trial subscriptions to its confidentiality-agreement template. (For Business Integrity’s announcement, go here.) And we’re offering it to everyone: Fortune 500 GCs. Hobbyist inventors. BigLaw associates. Solo practitioners. Everyone.

To subscribe, go to www.contractexpress.com/KoncisionNDA and submit your email address. Initially, the process will be manual—someone will email you your password. But we’ll be automating the process.

What permits me to do this is the extra marketing and development support that Business Integrity will be providing. Our goal now is to encourage people to discover, at no cost to them, the exceptional result of combining ContractExpress’s functionality with Koncision content.

That’s not to say that our confidentiality-agreement template perfect. When it comes to contract templates, perfection is an illusion, and regular readers of this blog will have noted the enhancements I’ve made over the past few months. And comments from Koncision customers have allowed me to fix plenty of glitches—as is always the case with contract drafting, humility is the order of the day. (Memo to self—for Koncision’s next product, quality control will be handled by someone other than the guy doing the drafting and automating.)

But Koncision’s template is way better than anything else out there, and it will get you closer to where you need to go. It’s way better than your average BigLaw NDA, such as the ones discussed here and here. And it’s way better than what Rocket Lawyer offers unsuspecting consumers, as discussed here.

The idea is that we’ll concern ourselves with revenue down the road. How much will we charge after your year is up? We’ll worry about that down the road some. What will our next product be? We’re still thinking about that; see here.

And please bear with me—it will take a couple of days for me to update the rest of the site to reflect this change.
