Service Description

Briefly, I can be best described as an experienced multi-media publishing professional with 15 years’ service in legal and B2B publishing with my role from 2007–12 having been that of Publisher for the tax and compliance list at LexisNexis (part of the ReedElsevier Group, a FTSE 100 company): a senior management position responsible for a large list of law, tax and regulatory products, with a commercially-focused, strategic remit within a market-leading, global organisation.

Over the last year I have taken the sound editorial skills I learned at LexisNexis and used them to established myself as a writing and editing freelancer, renowned for returning quality work in a short period of time. While retaining my legal clients, I have also moved into B2C magazines, as well as B2B newsletters. I am now particularly able to offer English language editing to non-native English speaking publishers.

I am also adept at new product launches, especially in emerging markets, being able to undertake the research, acquire the authors, edit the content and produce the finished article in any format. This is especially relevant to non-UK companies keen to gain entry to the UK market.

Please get in touch to discuss your needs.
