Introduction

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.

David’s legal writing services for businesses include:

  • Feature articles
  • Ghost writing articles
  • Case Studies
  • Research and writing
  • Legal updates for clients
  • Website content – drafting, editing and proofreading
  • In-house journals
  • Blogs for law firms
  • Editing and redrafting articles without legalese to help clients understand them
  • Promotional material, press releases, leaflets and brochures
  • Ezines and newletters
  • Editorials

Fees

Fees are based on several factors including:

  • how technical the material is and it’s subject matter
  • whether it is aimed at clients or other lawyers
  • how it will be published (e.g. online or in print)
  • whether it is for marketing or not

Fees may be charged on a one off project basis, on a rate per 1000 words or on an hourly rate.
