How to hire a great freelance Lawyer

Legal advice is provided by a trained lawyer and is usually provided by a practicing solicitor, barrister or lawyer in your selected state, territory or county.
Legal advice varies from state to state and country to country and it’s important to be aware of the specific laws for the area in which you live, to ensure you’re getting relevant and correct advice.
Using a freelance lawyer for temporary assignments or on a periodic retainer is a way for businesses to protect their legal rights and always have superior legal advice available as and when required.
In business, it legal issues can crop up from leasing issues, debt collections, contracts and any number of legal nuances. Having a dedicated freelance legal expert available can provide a range of legal services should you need general advice, be issued a notice to appear in court plus a full range of legal services you may encounter.
When you’re looking for freelance legal support you’re looking for legal advice that is provided remotely, allowing you to chat with your lawyer via Skype, messenger or email as required.
As with a traditional client/lawyer arrangement, in the case of freelance legal support client confidentiality is respected at all times and measures are in place to ensure that such confidentiality is maintained.
Freelance assignments are charged hourly or project rate, whatever suits your needs and turnaround times can be a few hours for small projects.
Factors determining the costs chargeable for freelance legal support include:
The scope of the work
 The urgency of the work
Hours required
As an independent legal freelancer can provide businesses with extensive knowledge & legal experience with the added benefit of avoiding the associated overheads.
Freelance legal support offers not just cost savings for business from an hourly and project basis; it  provides a global range of legal support depending on the work that is required and specialty areas.
There are a variety of scenarios where hiring a freelancer might make sense for your practice.
Freelance legal support can be a quick and easy short-term solution for your business, plugging in without training or handholding when a large matter presses your team to full capacity.
Hiring an experienced freelancer to help in these circumstances will help you maintain sanity, free you up to focus on other matters and may even reduce the risk of malpractice that can exist with an overburdened practice.
Businesses avoid the legal costs associated with engaging an employee such as annual leave, long service lease or make provision for tax, providing an enormous cost saving compared with working with big city legal groups with shop fronts and massive overheads.
Legal tasks freelancers can be engaged to undertake include:
Legal research
Contracts
Legal writing
Compliance
Patents
Property law
Privacy & terms and conditions
Trademarks
