The worst example of clear and concise writing I have seen was on my patent applications. I proof read one that had a single paragraph that was two pages long.

At first I corrected them. Then the lawyers kept changing them back and I learned my lesson.

I was told that writing this way made it very difficult to break them, so the lawyers said.
