I can certainly post a copy in ODT later in the week which gets converted into
.doc every time we need to go to the lawyers... I won't always have the time to
do it promptly, though.

I will note that there are several high-quality free software programmes that
can read and write the bits of the .doc format which are important for lawyers.

That doesn't make them open formats.
