Description

Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors, is expanding its in-house PR and communications team and seeks a PR Strategist & Senior Writer in its New York or Dallas office to develop external communications, including articles, blog posts and marketing copy. The firm seeks a proficient writer with a sophisticated voice, capable of describing complex subjects for professionals and mass audiences in a style they will understand and enjoy.

The ideal candidate will have professional experience in the field of communications, preferably from work at an agency, editorial office or media outlet. Experience with law firms or legal writing is preferred.

Responsibilities include:

- Interfacing with firm professionals to develop content ideas;

- Write articles and other communications showcasing the firm’s expertise and telling clients’ stories in a compelling and persuasive manner;

- Design content for multiple communications formats, including, but not limited to, journalistic articles, practice commentaries, and social media posts;

- Manage a “rapid response” process that positions the firm to actively engage in the public conversations shaping legal, business and political strategy.

Founded in 1984, Brewer has earned a reputation as one of the most successful law firms in the United States practicing exclusively in the field of complex commercial litigation and dispute resolution. With offices in Dallas and New York (and an office planned for San Francisco), Brewer represents a wide spectrum of industry leaders – from entrepreneurs to Fortune 500 corporations – facing the most challenging of legal issues.

Rare among major law firms, Brewer employs an in-house Public Affairs Group with deep expertise in issues and crisis management. Our communications and public relations professionals assist clients in navigating the toughest internal and external communications challenges. As such, the firm helps clients manage their most public crises and capitalize on image-building media opportunities.

We also offer assistance in directing the management and coordination of activities taking place in the legislative and regulatory arena. Our clients are often judged in the court of public opinion. As such, even in formal litigation, winning in the courtroom may not be nearly enough in today’s challenging media, business, and regulatory environment.

This group also directs various activities of the Brewer Foundation and a wide range of custom programs that serve the community. The Public Affairs Group plays a central role in public advocacy for the Brewer Storefront, a public service affiliate that manages high-impact community advocacy.
