Good legal writing is “organized, transparent to the reader and easy to understand.” (Julie Schrager) After all, good legal writing is “definitely a teachable skill,” according to Ed Good. Like everything else, practice makes perfect. Julie Schrager repeats, “You should write a lot to find out what works for you and what doesn`t.” “Ben Glass and GLM were extremely engaged and helped me develop my own office marketing plan. Ben coached me with step-by-step instructions and went through my very original plans and made recommendations for better structure and content. I am very grateful that he took the time to talk to me personally, give me feedback and constructive criticism to keep me on track. If you want to do legal marketing but (like me) don`t know how to do it, GLM is the way to go. “Ben Glass is a name the legal marketing world knows very well. I recently had the pleasure of talking to Ben; He gave me extremely valuable insights and advice on how to grow an online law firm. If you`re a lawyer looking to excel and take your firm to the next level, Ben is your man. Very, highly recommended. Of course, this self-imposed and systemic division of legal production methods has been a long time coming, and this week`s data only underscores a story we`ve been seeing for several years. But now it feels more “in your face” and more urgent.

Plain English for Lawyers by Richard C. Wydick, one of the founders of the Clear Legal Writing movement Of course, this bodes well for the future of ALSPs (AKA Law Companies or the preferred term on this website “Legal Process Providers”). The fact that some law firms have set up their own litigation groups and that the Big Four are expanding theirs is just further evidence of this great branch of law. “I have been a member for 3 months and I have already seen a dramatic improvement in my legal marketing. Ben and his staff are a pleasure to deal with them and very responsive. I highly recommend GLM. Good also stresses the importance of short, clear sentences: “Many legal writers rely on traditional legal language – old phrases like `according to`, `before`, `after`, `here`, `here`. All this jargon. Finally, “before” means “before”; `after`, `after`. The use of terribly outdated vocabulary often goes hand in hand with the common mistake of writing sentences that seem endless. Free yourself from legal language.
Schrager adds: “Even partners can get bogged down in the details of their case and lose perspective. When I read briefings as a foreigner, I ask, `Are you communicating effectively?` Follow the “rule of one reading.” Every sentence that needs to be read twice is not enough. “The real challenge is. branching legal work between complex, high-value, high-risk cases and CONSTRUCTION/reproducible work. While clients were willing to pay for everything law firms charged for emergency work, the reality is that while CFOs push for better control of legal expenses over the work of maintaining the status quo, in-house legal teams have a great opportunity to make a clear break with the past and use a “new means of legal production” – using technology at scale.
