Hi, I am a consultant and author, and I write a business-of-law column for Forbes. The gross majority of my pieces are interviews with heads of industry – mainly law firm chairs. My process is that (i) I have the interview transcribed, (ii) I break out and label the various sections of the document (consisting of a single question and answer), (iii) I remove the sections that won’t be put into the final piece, (iv) I winnow the sections and clean up the language as a first pass (only the ones that will be published), (v) the language is sent to the interviewee for change (if necessary) and approval, (vi) I proof it with a fine toothed comb, and ensure consistency of style (with my past work).

(I don’t know if...
