Legal writing, including writing articles and blogs is one of the most important marketing tools for lawyers in the internet age. It is critical for your firm that you regularly publish insightful new articles, that interest your clients and other lawyers too.
Not all lawyers make good writers, it requires special skills and expertise to write for non-lawyers (potential clients), to make the content understandable, as well in publications for other lawyers, where the content is more technical. Apart from having a solid legal background as a dual qualified solicitor and barrister, David is an Englishman who has total mastery of the english language and prior to joining the bar he was a full-time professional legal writer for LexisNexis on their Practical Guidance product which is aimed at other lawyers.
