About Sarah Fox

Sarah Fox has spent 20 years reading, analysing, critiquing, writing and training others on using construction contracts. At Eversheds LLP, she wrote, adapted, amended, negotiated and resolved disputes on contracts from 1 page to 100 pages.

She now specialises in helping construction professionals to build simple contracts. With JCT SB 2016 weighing in at over 50,000 words plus another 25,000 words of amendments, the simplicity of writing 500-word contracts has become Sarah’s personal project.

Simple means short, readable, understandable and usable. 500 words is roughly a single A4-page. Her contracts are elegant, clear and brief, and – most importantly – legally robust.

“This is a really well written and extremely helpful book for any company that needs to write letters of intent. I will definitely be applying these principles to the next LOI I draft or review to save my company from the pitfalls Sarah highlights."

- Justine Brazil, General Counsel
Willmott Dixon PLC
“The plain, no-nonsense language is a refreshing change and reflective of the non-legal background of the majority of construction professionals. A real must-read for anyone involved in preparing letters of intent.”

- Ben Bolton, Quantity Surveyor

"This book opened my eyes to the pitfalls of getting it wrong when writing letters of intent. It’s easy to read and simple to put into action.”
