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.

    Mark Shipowick

    Tax, business and immigration attorney.

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 1

    I began my career as a legal intern at Cunningham Swan in Kingston, Canada in 1989 then practiced under senior attorney Doran R. Henderson before founding the Shipowick law office in 1992. My practice included business, insurance, and mortgage litigation, criminal appeals and a variety of administrative tribunal work. In 1997 I transitioned to the Canadian federal government working as a business adviser and tax auditor for ten years for Canada’s IRS called the CRA – Canada Revenue Agency. My audits covered a range of domestic and international tax areas including business income, value added tax, capital gains, international stock option/securities transactions, foreign passive income laws, residency for tax purposes and migration rules. In July 2014 I was admitted to the NY state bar. I provide in-depth tax research and analysis of complex and perplexing tax issues. As a tax auditor I routinely relied on CCH's tax service, (Wolters Kluwer) in my view the leading tax service but of course the ultimate responsibility for correctly applying the law rests with counsel. On a personal note, I have an ongoing interest in constitutional law and first amendment freedoms, homeschooling, in education/agriculture integration, sustainable living, health, building, and innovations in transportation, for example, VTOL aircraft.

    Philippines-qualified corporate lawyer

    Singapore - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 3

    As a Philippines-qualified lawyer with 7 years of post-qualification experience, I have handled a variety of commercial and technical contracts for individual and corporate clients while at a law firm, and as an in-house lawyer. I also performed corporate secretarial functions, which included preparation of minutes of the meeting, agenda, and materials, as well as transcription of meeting discussions. On top of my legal role, I also performed regulatory and listing functions in the Philippine fixed income and electricity markets, which enabled me to develop not only specific capital and energy markets experience, but also a valuable and transferable skill set in these fast-paced sectors. Equipped with the foregoing skills, it is my objective to provide prospective clients with relevant legal assistance and advice on corporate, securities, and energy law matters in a non-typical office setting.
