I'm an award-winning writer for global law firms and companies. With 20 years of legal industry experience, I handle large-scale content projects for firms, including website makeovers, recruiting materials, diversity and inclusion, Chambers surveys and awards, and much more.

I began my career as a reporter at The American Lawyer magazine, where I interviewed hundreds of the worldโ€™s top lawyers at firms and major companies, and produced news and feature stories, including several cover stories. I then worked as a ghostwriter for policy advocates at the Brennan Center for Justice, a public policy institution at NYU School of Law. Before I started Laura Wenner Communications LLC, I served as managing communications editor at two international law firms, developing public relations campaigns, website content and client-focused publications.

Outside of professional services firms, my clients include some of the largest companies in the world. I help them produce thought leadership that draws in readers and calls them to action. I write speeches, articles and video scripts for general counsel and other executives. I have a deep understanding of what in-house lawyers look for in their outside counsel, a unique point of view that I believe sets me apart from other law firm writers.

Below are representative samples of my law firm work. I look forward to collaborating on your next big project!
