Does Leeway work for legal?
Leeway’s contract management software is new to the market, aiming to offer greater visibility and control over contracts. But is the solution established enough to provide the advanced functionality that legal and business teams require to manage contracts at scale?
This page explores the features, limitations and pricing of Leeway, comparing it to Juro's all-in-one contract automation platform.
Leeway is a relatively new contract management software, with the company founded just under two years ago.
Although the solution offers a wide range of features designed to streamline the entire contract lifecycle, some of these features aren’t as advanced as those offered by Juro - particularly pre-signature.
For a start, Leeway lacks native eSignature functionality, meaning legal and business teams will need to purchase and integrate a separate eSignature tool in order to get contracts over the line. This is distinct from Juro, which includes legally binding advanced electronic signature as standard in all plans and limits the need to switch between tools needlessly.
Leeway’s editing and formatting functionality is also limited compared to Juro’s rich-text editor, making it more difficult to create beautifully designed contracts quickly and at scale.
Other key limitations of Leeway include:
- Limited editing functionality: although Leeway has a contract editor, it’s not as advanced or intuitive as the one developed by Juro, and it doesn’t accommodate certain document formats as effectively
- No native eSignature: unlike Juro which provides secure native eSignature, Leeway relies on an integration with DocuSign to get contracts signed, which introduces yet another tool to your contract management process
- Lacks some popular integrations: Leeway doesn’t integrate with some of the platforms favoured by commercial teams, like Greenhouse and Workday
- Not equipped for HR use cases: Leeway is that it doesn’t offer the functionality HR teams need to self-serve on contracts, which limits the software’s roll-out across your business. This is distinct from Juro which allows HR teams to create and manage contracts with minimal input from legal
Visionary legal counsel and the teams they enable need a comprehensive and reliable contract automation tool that makes it quick and easy to manage a wide range of contracts at scale.
Juro’s natural language Q&A, advanced contract editor and extensive formatting capabilities make it simple for commercial teams to self-serve on contracts, reducing their reliance on legal as a result. Juro is proven to help businesses close contracts up to 30% faster, helping them grow fast and without limits.
Let’s explore the various benefits of using Juro for your contracts, and how it can enable you to work create, negotiate, review, approve and sign contracts in one unified workspace.
✍️ Rich-text editor designed for contracts
Juro’s rich-text editor delivers advanced creation and editing capabilities that enable users to create beautifully designed contracts in seconds - even without legal expertise.

🌐 Real-time contract collaboration
Designed with contracts in mind, Juro’s advanced negotiation functionality makes contract negotiation seamless.
Not only can legal and business teams collaborate in-platform by leaving comments on specific sections of the contract, but they can also decide which edits and comments are visible to external parties.
Teams can also collaborate on contracts in real-time by setting up approval workflows to ensure all contracts are robust and up to legal’s high standards.
⚙️ Replace several tools with one
Disjointed contract processes can create friction within your contract workflow, resulting in lost data, missing files and costly delays.
Juro’s all-in-one contract automation tool creates a single source of truth for your contracts, with native eSignature and a centralized repository that allows you to query contract data in the same place you create, negotiate, review and approve contracts.
What’s more, Juro integrates with over 4,000 other apps, allowing your teams to work from the systems they love and reduce the need for repetitive data entry.
Leeway’s cheapest plan is charged at $99 per core user per month, with access for 3 core users and up to 50 collaborators. The standard package includes up to 500 contracts and basic contract management functionality, like contract generation, negotiation and storage for small teams.
Leeway’s Pro package, which is their most popular, is charged at $119 per core user per month, with a limit of 10 core users and 150 collaborators included in the price. This package includes 2,000 contracts, approval workflows and access to a Salesforce integration.
Businesses that are interested in Leeway’s most advanced package will need to contact their sales team for a quote. This package seeks to provide an advanced contract management experience for an unlimited number of core users and collaborators, unlike some of Leeway’s more affordable packages.
