Job description

News Reporter

Washington DC

Law Business Research Ltd is an established news service and publishing house based in London, UK providing news, analysis and research tools for the global legal community. The company employs approx. 180 employees across five news and awareness brands, as well as other research and analysis publications.

We currently have a role for a News Reporter to join Global Competition Review (GCR) in our Washington, DC office. GCR is a leading antitrust law news service and magazine, with subscribers within government enforcement, the legal industry and the wider business community on six continents.

The reporter will work alongside our teams in DC and London to cover regulatory agencies, court cases and law firms that shape antitrust and regulatory policy around the world. The reporter will be expected to rely on original reporting to produce daily stories for our widely-read news service. They will also be asked to craft engaging features and reports about issues that affect our savvy readership. While the job is document and research intensive, we spend much of our time in courtrooms, conferences and at the agencies, covering the events that shape the antitrust world in person.

Successful candidates will be competitive, hard workers, and fast writers with the ability to find sharp angles in stories; they will also have a team-oriented and collaborative outlook on newsrooms, with a willingness to take on a range of tasks in the newsroom, from high-profile cover stories to nuts-and-bolts fact gathering and research. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a truly international publishing house with the opportunity for travel both within the US and overseas, sometimes frequently.

To apply please send a covering letter explaining why you are suitable for the role and copy of your resume via our careers page through the link. You must also send us relevant writing samples to be considered for this role.

We support a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace, and welcome applications from different backgrounds.
