Work with a legal copywriter

Someone who can add some draw to your law.

Lawyers are skilled at selling an argument

But when it comes to advocating for ourselves, it can be a struggle to find words that work. To get the right balance in your marketing messages between sounding professional yet personable, and authoritative yet accessible.

That’s why it helps to work with a writer who speaks your language.

You know? Legalese.

And that’s me. Because after 13 years practising as a barrister, I’m fluent in it.

More importantly, I understand the challenges you face and how competitive your landscape is. I can help you identify what distinguishes you from your peers. And how to communicate that to your prospects.

WEb copy & profiles

Your website isn’t about you. It’s about your potential clients. From landing pages to lawyer bios,  I write clear copy that talks to your readers. Not at them.

Case studies & submissions

Show your potential clients just how good you are at what you do. Stand out from the crowd in your Legal 500, Chambers and Partners, and awards submissions. 

Blog posts & articles

Content may be king but without something engaging your kingdom won’t enchant.   I write interesting articles that are easy on the ear and right on the law.

Emails & newsletters

Build trust, build relationships and build your client base with captivating and conversational emails and relevant and readable newsletters.

Focus: Making you stand out

Captivating copy from a courtroom colleague

Maybe you need to write a submission for an award or legal directory?  But your heavy workload means you’re struggling to find time to breathe, let alone sit down and write.

Or perhaps you’re agonising over your profile? How do you talk about your achievements without coming across as a braggart or a bore? 

I’ve been there.  

I understand what it means to be a successful lawyer. 

And how hard you have to work to achieve that.

But, in a profession where excellence and expertise are the norm, I also know how to go about writing something that makes you stand out from the crowd and makes a lasting impression. 

Fancy discussing how we can make your words work for you?

Simon is a very engaging writer, with a sharp focus and a dry sense of humour. He knows how to get a reader’s attention and how to finish leaving them wanting to read more.

Former Head of Chambers, Albion Chambers

Having Simon working on our website copy was invaluable. He grasped our key values and strengths and was able to communicate that through the work he produced, which provided us with a clear message to clients.

Joe Warren

Director and Partner, Cobb Warren

The project that we undertook with Simon was the first time that we have engaged a professional copywriter for this type of work, as we normally do this in-house. The experience was eye-opening and we have been so pleased with the end result. 

Simon made the process very easy from start to finish. He took time to understand the brief and gave us a clear pricing structure for the work. During the information-gathering interviews, Simon guided us with intelligent questions about the messages we wanted to put across and it was clear that he had taken the time to understand both our business and our sector. 

The end product was excellent, definitely exceeded our expectations and we wouldn’t hesitate to use him again and/or recommend him to others.
