“Ross’s seminar was terrific. He drilled down beneath platitudes like ‘clarity’ and ‘brevity’ to give our junior attorneys concrete tools to help achieve those goals rather than just talk about them”

Rob Saunders
Partner, Skadden Arps

“Interactive, great, real life examples, very practical, made me think critically about my own writing, very engaging, not boring – I will use these tips in my own writing immediately; more useful than tens of hours of 1L legal writing.”

Adam Schwartzbaum
Summer Associate, White & Case
