This was done well enough but was very basic and should be labeled that way. Provided nothing new for seasoned practitioner.

I regularly deal with corporate formation and the drafting of corporate business documents. While much of this was old hat to me, it was still informative and reminded me of aspects I don't often address but should keep in mind in my practice.
