Developed by leading barristers from Erskine Chambers and a team of experienced corporate professional support lawyers from City law firms, FromCounsel provides a wealth of practical, in-depth, ready-made answers to the crucial questions facing practitioners in their day-to-day work. Our aim is to make our legal content more comprehensive, more insightful, more accessible, more searchable and more sharable than anyone else in the market. With well over 100 subscribers including leading law firms (from the magic circle to regional teams) and in-house legal functions, we are looking to build out our established Corporate Law service into other areas, products and services.
This is an unrivalled opportunity to join this dynamic online company at an exciting phase of our ongoing development and to play a part in the further growth of our ground-breaking corporate legal information service. The successful candidates will be instrumental in developing our corporate service and expanding it into other products, alongside expert barristers, our talented team of experienced in-house PSLs and our excellent legal editorial team.
Reporting to the Head of Content, you will be responsible for writing, reviewing and editing first class informative content for FromCounsel and for the day-to-day running of the service. These are varied and interesting roles with significant scope to input into the further development and enhancement of the Corporate service and its interaction with other content streams.
Key responsibilities will include
Scoping, writing, reviewing and editing top quality new content, consistently applying FromCounsel’s unique approach and style, and enhancing and expanding existing content
Developing service with new topics, precedents, practical resources, news commentary/analysis and other initiatives such as document automation
Co-ordinating and working in close collaboration with barristers, colleagues, editors and external experts, specialists and other service providers

These roles are open to both existing PSLs and fee-earners looking to move to their first PSL role. Together with strong technical corporate law knowledge, candidates should have at least 5 years’ PQE and broad experience within the corporate team of a UK law firm.
Alongside strong legal experience, a demonstrable aptitude for writing high quality legal copy in an engaging and accessible way, and a genuine interest in communicating legal developments to other lawyers, is essential.
Candidates should be focused, efficient and confident in working on their own initiative to deadlines. At the same time, they should enjoy working as part of a team, collaborating with other PSLs and barristers to ensure content meets FromCounsel’s premium standards.
