    I am a legal professional with extensive research, writing, and editing experience. I have experience in general contract and business litigation. I have most recently been assisting in large-scale corporate litigation. However, I am looking to transition my career to a more advisory-type position. As such, I am looking to increase my experience and skill level through projects and opportunities outside my every day practice. Aside from my day-to-day law practice, I also engage in freelance editing assignments, ranging from requests from other legal professionals to professional in the IT industry. My experience and interests are quite broad. I always welcome the opportunity to engage in activities where I will learn or experience something new.  less

    I have over a quarter of a century of experience in helping others to express themselves on paper or with the spoken word. I have worked successfully with the full spectrum of talent, from the lowest levels of an organisation to the very top, helping each to polish and articulate their message. I have specialised in working with authors whose first language is not English, producing material for the very highest levels of government, both domestic and foreign. I am adept and well versed at helping individuals and organisations alike to develop the thoughts and ideas that they are trying to get across and to making sure that their message is fully understood by those who will read or hear it. I have Bachelor’s Degrees in Molecular Biology from University College London and in Law from the College of Law, as well as a Master’s in Defence Studies from King’s College London.  less

    It is almost impossible for an author to catch every single mistake in their own work. Many writers get attached to their own writing, and their minds will even overlook what they have written and read what they think they wrote. So, it is necessary to have a second set of eyes (preferably those of a professional editor) to do the copy editing and pick out what the author missed. I have the expertise needed to find and correct errors in grammar, continuity, flow, spelling, and punctuation. I will provide these skills for a fee, helping you bring your writing to a professional level.  less

    Hello, Professionals should always be dedicated to, solely, putting in their maximum effort in their tasks and delivering them on time. With three years of work experience with two companies in article writing , I would like to improve on my standards by getting work from employers requiring high standards. I have been writing for blogs but my writing capabilities are not limited to this genre. My primary specialty is sports but I can write on any topic as per the requirement of the employer. Furthermore, I'm a law graduate from University of London and have been practicing for a year in corporate sector with HKN Legal Advisors. I would like to get work in this field too, and would be highly appreciative of any learning opportunity I get through working for O Desk employers. My primary capabilities in this field are connected to drafting of legal contracts, Intellectual property issues and arbitration matters. Regards, Mansoor Un Nabi Khan.  less

    I graduated with an Associate in Applied Science in International Business and a Bachelors in Applied Science in History/Anthropology. My experience in writing comes from the extensive papers having to be written in my line of study. I may also be able to help with any type of business plan writing and basic accounting problems any client may have. While I have started a few basic businesses with friends and colleagues, it was my responsibility to take care of the Administation/ Accounting/ and Customer Service elements. My main objective is to get into designing. Not much experience as I do it mainly for fun and leisure.  less

    NEWS FLASH: If you want guaranteed placement on a national news blog, let's talk. Enjoy the benefits of a PR strategist using her journalism skills to get media placements. Now, back to regular programming. Many small business owners have no clue that an appearance on local or national television or in a newspaper can boost business. It works! For three years, I have made business owners believers. As a former newspaper journalist, I can read the minds of media gatekeepers. I know what they think because I used to be one. I have helped past clients boost sales and increase visibility. All I ask is that you allow me to do what you hired me to do -- and that is promote you and your business. If I went to the dealership to have the oil changed in my vehicle, I would never go into a garage and tell the mechanic how to change the oil in my vehicle. That is what I hired him for. If you don't believe what I say, read the comments left by my past clients here on oDesk. I have more references if you need them. My latest success: I landed an interview with a local newspaper editor for a client within 24 hours of sending the press release about an upcoming women's conference. Need I say more?  less
