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. These experienced assistants can search for patents and trademarks among legal research websites and databases; provide you with a different legal research methodology or law practice management software; and gather information about your case, from product history and origins to medical tests and sales statistics. 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. They can also draft legal documents, write detailed reports, or prepare presentations — including case studies, statutes, law reviews, or reviewing ethic and moral aspects of a subject.
