Legal Journalist, Editor and
Former Solicitor. NCTJ Qualified Journalist
Nicola has more than 20 years’ experience in the legal sector – as a solicitor and as a legal journalist, legal copywriter, and author.
She writes for a wide range of clients in the UK, the US, Canada, Europe and the EMEA region.
I'm a property/private client solicitor-turned full time legal writer. I originally trained in journalism, before going into law - then returned to my first love (words - and writing).
I now write about the law and legal developments. I also write on business matters.
What am I working on?
This week I'm writing on GDPR (again!), title indemnity insurance, insolvency cases - and business developments for a niche tax firm.
I'm also working on an editorial submission for a Canadian law firm client for a global legal directory.
I love writing. I love the law. I loved practicing law. And I discovered, through an organic process, that writing is my true love. Having started out in journalism, then joining the ranks of the solicitors' profession, I went full circle - returning to journalism and writing.
Today, the majority of work is for legal or law related clients - but I also write on business developments and business finance.
The rest of my time is spent managing a family (with four children), a golden retriever who begs to play when I work, and being an active part of a church family.
