Honestly, this just improves with practice. You need to print out your documents before you send them and sit down and read them really carefully, and then make edits. That should help pick up most typos and small errors, as well as bigger mistakes or changes you want to make to the drafting.

I think it's worth getting as good at this as you can because senior associates and partners rely on you to get this stuff right, and typos etc make your work look careless even when it isn't.
