Depends what you're looking for. If you just want to clear it for IR35, many IR35 insurances will throw in a couple of contract checks with the year's cover. If you want a bit more, you'd be better getting an actual lawyer to look at it. You may wish to consider joining the federation of small businesses (FSB) who offer a free legal helpline to members as I've been told by a couple of members that it's highly worth the couple of hundred ish quid a year it costs in the legal advice alone.
