If you’d like to get in touch, then the best thing to do is leave a comment on the article that interests you. But if you have a direct inquiry please use the form below. Before you do, however, there are some things you need to know.
First, I won’t read or edit your story/script/novel/marriage proposal. I am not a professional editor, and you don’t really want comments from some strange writer. You need to find somebody you know and who knows you well enough to help.
Plus, if I start reading peoples work on the internet I’ll only end up getting sued by idiots who don’t understand how intellectual property law works.
Second, I am not available to give legal advice. Yes, I am a lawyer. But I am not in practice, do not have a practice certificate, and don’t live in the country where I’m qualified. Which was excellent planning on my part. Best that you find a specialist in your area and I go back to writing novels. Unless, of course, you’re looking for academic writing on law and economics, in which case check out point three.
Third, and more positively, I am available for freelance work. But please don’t waste your time asking me to work for free (you’ll be amazed how often this happens). I already have plenty of my own work to do, so requests need to be well paid, prestigious, or for a really good cause. Preferably all three.
Of course, if you’re Chris Chibnall and you’ve decided what you need is a random geezer to write a new episode of Dr Who, then just this once I’d waive my usual fee…

I'm a doctor of law and economics, a qualified barrister, and a retired British naval officer. I have written for journals, collections of academic writing, and newspapers including The Economist. I also write scripts, short stories, and am finishing a novel just so I can throw it on a bloody bonfire. This blog charts my efforts to avoid fiction-related fire hazards.
