My aim is to spend my productive time doing what I do best and enjoy most: researching and writing. I have developed these skills during a thirty-year career in legal drafting, both of formal documents and of letters. I have also made a close study of language, particularly in relation to legal prose. I have the ability to communicate in writing concisely and comprehensively, without ambiguity or redundancy, in a style appropriate to the audience. I have advanced word-processing skills, including document automation and optimal formatting. I am able to structure a document (or collection of documents) in a logic manner. I have research and analysis skills which enable me to gain an in-depth understanding of a subject in preparation for writing on it. I can apply these skills in the following three main areas:-
Drafting master and important one-off letters, text modules and other documents, organizing them in document libraries and providing training in the use of them.
Writing web content in the appropriate style, with particular emphasis on hypertextual prose.
Writing web content and e-newsletters for law firms, in the subject of which I have professional knowledge.
Examples of my writing, in each of these areas, are available on request.
