    They both say the same thing!

    'is not comfortable' = 'does not feel comfortable' = 'is uncomfortable'

    If you were to use any of the above expressions in your sentence, you'd be expressing the same thing: that the person isn't really too comfortable with contracts.

    In most cases, they are largely interchangeable.

    I would say the first one because it implies that the person is uncomfortable in the sense that she does not know how to do something. The second sentences conveys the sense that the person is emotionally bothered and sounds strange in the context of contracts.
