Get Your Legal Research Project Started Today!

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.

    United States - Last active: 6 days ago

    With years of experience as a litigator, I handle matters ranging from complex multi-jurisdictional disputes to high-stakes commercial and criminal matters, as well as legal research & writing, contract negotiation, contract management, and contract drafting. I am aggressive and tireless, but most importantly, I always fight smart. The end game is to give my clients resolutions that are achievable and that we can both live with. I communicate with my clients in a down-to-Earth style and strive to tell them how things are, even if it is not how they want them to be. Being an attorney and counselor gives me the strength and opportunity to fight for my clients while giving them realistic expectations for outcomes. That is what an ally does. Finally, I take the lawyer's creed "My Word Is My Bond" to heart. I say what I mean and mean what I say. I look forward to helping you.
