Post your legal research project on Upwork and find professional legal researchers who can search through relevant sources of law, legislation and legal documentation to support your court case.

You will also find intellectual property experts who can perform competitive research and determine whether patent, trademark, or copyright infringement has been committed against your company or website.

Legal research refers to the task of finding and gathering information necessary to support a legal case. On Upwork, the world’s largest online workplace, lawyers and law firms hire talented legal researchers and assistants — who may have professional experience in corporate law, criminal law or patent law — to conduct thorough legal research about workplace policies, consumer rights, or specific regulations.

    Government Capture Manager, Proposal Writer, Researcher

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 2

    I am an experienced project manager; proposal writer, coordinator and manager; and researcher, writer, auditor, and analyst, with a niche service in government consulting and capture. My content areas are varied and wide and as an analyst and researcher, I'm experienced at adapting and building on past frameworks. I am a full-time freelancer (since Feb 2013), and part-time from Nov 2008 through Feb 2013. Thirty percent of my work is on Upwork; the remainder of my work is with non-virtual clients. I am constantly investing in professional development and I am Shipley trained at the corporate level. Please see my terms below. GOVERNMENT CONSULTING AND PROPOSAL WRITING. I've directly consulted and advised government since 1995, either within government, or in a national management consulting firm. I take all the skills at my disposal: analysis, research, audit, writing--to provide best practice solutions. I have worked as a project director, project manager, and team lead, conducting activities, writing and editing reports, developing work and audit plans, and all served as a practice area proposal coordinator while remaining 87% billable. I've helped businesses pursue government work since 2006. I utilize advanced PM practices to sequence activities based on priority, and condensed from the Shipley process. If you seek government proposal work, I'll ask that you respond to the portfolio document: Client Scoping. CONTENT AREAS: ambulance billing, airport operations, automated passport control (APC), economic development, education (K-12, IHE), electronic health records (EHR), electronic medical records (EMR), electronic patient care reporting (ePCR), franchise operations, health level seven (HL7), high reliability, labor, lean six sigma, government, legislation, public safety, SAAS, statutory research, theory of constraints, trades, transportation, workforce. PROJECT MANAGER (OPERATIONS, NOT I.T.). I've been an operational project manager since 1995. I've developed full-blown work plans, communications plans, and status and final reports. I currently use two PM software applications. RESEARCHER. I've been a researcher since 1991. This skill enabled me to pursue work as a yellow-book auditor because both are based on documented facts. My research is independent, fact-based, and very often collaborative. WRITER. I've been a professional writer since 1995, to include press releases, summaries, white papers, reports, proposals, RFP's, and more. AUDITOR and ANALYST. I am a trained performance auditor with documented experience. This type of auditing is specific to processes and data. Within this category is cost accounting. I've been an analyst since 1995, analyzing performance, revenue, budget, and so much more. *********************************************************** TERMS: Just a note about my RATES--the rate that I bid reflects the 10% transaction fee. My rate ranges are: $25 - $35: government capture and research; business research $35 - $50: proposal coordination and writing $50 - $75: government business development and capture. Please note that a full-time employee that provided this service would range from $45 - $100 per hour with indirect costs. If you pay me $27.78 per hour, this is my net: 27.78-2.78=25.00 1st net less employment tax, social security, medicare, and health insurance (for a total of $8.83) for a 2nd net of $15.17. So, hopefully you can quickly realize the value you receive in hiring a freelancer over an employee. I only accept hourly work with new clients and I also recognize the value of repeat work and will reflect that during rate discussions. * My rates are flexible depending on the perceived need, so please provide as much information as possible. * I don't work for commission. * I don't work set hours unless I have the capacity. Should you wish more of an employee arrangement, where you set the hours and dictate how the work should be done, please contact oDesk Payroll, and I am pleased to consider that option. * I don't work for clients of other clients. Have your client contact me directly. *********************************************************** A NOTE ABOUT SUCCESS RATE: In government proposal writing, many oDesk clients discover they do not meet minimum qualifications for government proposals. When this happens, the proposal can't be submitted. I have been ending these projects and we have these options: job completed successfully; job completed unsuccessfully; or other reason. I have been coding these as "other reason" and also providing a rather detailed explanation assuming oDesk was reviewing. Unfortunately, the 'other reason'--a client's INABILITY to meet minimum quals has equated to what appears to be my failure. NOT THE CASE. I have asked oDesk to review and revise but if past is prologue, this will never happen. Please ask me for a screen shot of our detailed ratings (clients don't see).
