across the CBD and metropolitan area. Alongside the legal work it undertakes, as a socially responsible law firm, Sydney Criminal Lawyers have established the ‘SCL Help Fund’, a charity wholly funded by the practice. The fund aims to help those in need – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender or even species (animals included). It was set-up with an initial $20,000 contribution by Principal Ugur, and the practice adds $1,000 to the fund each week in the hope of making a real difference to those in need. Ultimately, this focus on supporting those in need, whether they be clients, potential clients or those supported by the charity fund, is what sets Sydney Criminal Lawyers apart from its competitors and marks it The Expert Edi- tor is the leading online editing and proofreading company in Aus- tralia. We caught up with Brendan Brown to learn more. The Expert Editor provides a range of services for writers, with its main clients being students and academics, book authors and businesses. Brendan outlines the firm’s services in more detail and explains how it works to ensure that clients receive the very high- est standard of service. “Here at the Expert Editor, we strive to provide high quality edit- ing and proofreading at affordable prices. We are meticulous when it comes to recruitment, being able to work from home is an attractive proposition for many editors and therefore we are highly selective when it comes to hiring. “Despite operating at a large scale, our costs are relatively low. We all work from home -editors and support staff. Our operation is highly efficient as we use on- line tools for communication and workflow. Our marketing is also kept in house which is a huge cost saving.” Thesis editing and book editing are the firm’s most popular servic- es thanks to recent trends in the market, as Brendan discusses. “As the number of international students studying in Australia grows, we are seeing a corre- sponding demand for academic editing. This isn’t surprising con- sidering English is sometimes their second or even third lan- guage, and they can benefit enor- mously from a professional editor polishing their language. Another trend we are seeing is that more authors (particularly first time ones) are self-publishing their books, and therefore are seeking out professional book editing. As self-publishing becomes more commonplace and e-Book sales continue to grow, we anticipate that the demand for professional book editing will only increase.” In order to support this increase, and meet the ever evolving needs of its clients, the Expert Editor is adapting and changing, providing it with many exciting future pros- pects, as Brendon concludes. “Looking to the future, we feel there remains considerable room for growth in the Australian mar- ket and this is a top priority. How- ever, we have also set our sights on the US and internationally by creating a sister site to The Expert Editor, called Global English Edit- ing. We run Global English Edit- ing under the same model as our Australian site and hope that that larger markets will open many new opportunities which we are keen to take advantage of.” Company: The Expert Editor Contact: Brendan Brown Contact Email: [email protected] Address: 42D Melrose Street, Parkdale, 3195, Australia Phone: 0061 3 9999 7272 Website: experteditor.com.au Best Academic Editing Company 2017 N out as the best option for anyone seeking strong representation and the very highest standards of support for their case.
