A veteran researcher for investigations 

Any reporter benefits from a good researcher and Margot Williams is among the best.  

Her career at The Washington Post, The New York Times, NPR, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, and The Intercept, is one of the most respected in the investigative reporting world. 

We are pleased to announce that Williams is now providing FIRE-supported investigative reporters with tailored research results, via the FIRE Consultancy and Virtual Newsroom—a boon to stories at any stage. 

FIRE is grateful for Williams' contribution to freelance reporting in the public interest—part of augmented reporting services that now includes FOIA litigation.
