Recently I posted on LinkedIn two comments (here and here) regarding the distinction between simplifying a contract and making it clearer. In those comments I say that simplification relates to what you say in a contract whereas clarity relates to how you say it. What you say falls on a spectrum between simple and complex; how you say it falls on a spectrum between clear and unclear.
Why bother with this distinction? Because simplifying a contract and making it clearer are different tasks. If you think the problem is just complexity, you don’t understand the problem and you won’t be able to fix it. For more on that, see two 2017 posts, here and here.
