Frequently asked questions
Can't find the answer your looking for? Let us know!
What are blueprints?Blueprints are Magistrate's legal templates. The Magistrate team creates and publishes official blueprints for you to use. You design and create custom blueprints for your business to automate its legal paperwork. Need our help creating a blueprint to fit your team's needs? Let us know!
Are you my lawyer?No. This is a software product and is not legal services. Nothing on this website is legal advice, and use of this website does not create an attorney-client relationship. Consult with your own attorney if you have questions about the law or your particular circumstances. Need an attorney to consult with? Reach out to us and we'll recommend one.
Are the signatures legally binding?
Yes, if you are in the United States. The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) together with the broad adoption of the Uniform Electronic Transaction Act (UETA) by 47 states ensures the validity of electronic signatures.
You may not be able to use electronic signatures for things like wills, adoption paperwork, powers of attorney, and other instruments that are specifically required to be wet signed or notarized. Check with your lawyer.
What about those fake cursive signatures?
We've always thought that the fake cursive signatures that most electronic signature platforms make you use when e-signing a contract are silly. Magistrate instead uses something called a conformed signature.
When a person signs the contract, the signature block will display something like
/s/ Jane Smith. This means the contract has been signed by that person, and this conformed signature is the valid representation of a person's signature.
Who are you?Magistrate was founded by Harry Khanna, a software engineer turned corporate lawyer. Harry has been practicing law for over 8 years, and every official blueprint available on Magistrate was carefully crafted by him.
Can I use Magistrate even if I don't have my own legal documents yet?Yes! Right now, Magistrate offers blueprints for Independent Contractor Agreements, Confidentiality Agreements, SaaS Services Agreements, and SAFEs. More are being added regularly. If there's one you'd like to see, reach out and let us know!

Paperwork shouldn't be the bottleneck.
As an in-house lawyer at a fast growing startup, I watched as we onboarded hundreds of new customers a week. When the company closed a customer, the customer signed an agreement that reflected their unique terms. Our legal team created that contract for every customer by hand. It was the last — and the slowest — step in closing a customer.
We were overwhelmed. We hired outside consultants for hundreds of thousands of dollars per year to maintain Microsoft Word plugins tying the contract creation step into the business database. As a former software engineer, I knew the problem could be solved much cheaper and much faster. And I was sure my employer wasn’t the only company with this problem.
That’s why I started Magistrate. Too often, legal paperwork is the bottleneck. But no longer. Have a complicated custom agreement that you use for your customers? We can turn it into a blueprints. Want to use a standard form? Use one of our off-the-shelf blueprints.
So don’t sweat the legal fees and lawyer delays, because you can create & sign legal documents directly from your data. Papering the deal won’t ever slow down your business again.
Sick of being the bottleneck for your business? We'd love to hear from you.
