FreeLegalDocs

Purchasing legal documents can be expensive, and trying to compile a comprehensive document or agreement can be overwhelming.

Realising how expensive it is to purchase legal documents, a lawyer and software developer got together to develop FreeLegalDocs.co.za. Here you can find templates for most of the legal matters you will face in the early stages, including the Change of Name, Reservation of Name, Memorandum of Association, Shareholder Agreement, employment documents, partnership documents and patent documents.
