Post your legal research project on oDesk 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 oDesk, 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.

    My goals are to continue assisting individuals and businesses with fewer than fifty employees address their legal problems, and to continue helping them prevent other legal problems from occurring. I am a lawyer, licensed in California since 1986. During this time, I have represented companies in all phases of their existence. Much of my practice is devoted to helping companies address the range of legal issues and problems that can occur (labor problems, contract disputes, tax and environmental issues, business torts, IP disputes, and the like) through negotiation, arbitration, and litigation. I have also helped businesses draft their initial agreements and organization papers, prepared and reviewed agreements needed for the conduct of their business, and represented them during the sale or winding up of their business. I also work with individuals who wish to represent themselves in resolving a variety of disputes. I help them draft court papers, I coach them on arguments to make to the judge, and I ghost-write letters and settlement documents. This part of my practice is now expanding into assisting other lawyers who have a temporary surplus of work and need experienced assistance. I also have a small trusts, estates, and tax planning practice. I run a "virtual office," meaning nearly all communication will be electronic. For my clients' convenience, I have a San Francisco telephone and fax number. This structure allows me to pass substantial reductions in attorney's fees to my clients, while still providing the quality representation of an experienced and licensed lawyer in California and federal law.  less

    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.  less

    Thank you for taking an interest in my profile. I graduated law school in 2008 with a goal of becoming a civil litigator, possibly in family law, although I was very interested in criminal and immigration laws, too. I was willing to enter any legal discipline when I experienced a near fatal stroke that left me unable to walk or speak clearly. None of my memories or cognition were compromised. I am able to do anything online, but I cannot speak clearly over the telephone. If an employer prefers to speak with me over the phone I can talk, but regular phone contact with clients is not possible. I am willing to work through the night if you require a fast turnaround time, but ordinarily I require about three days depending on the complexity of the issue. Working at home is easiest for me because I cannot drive or do many of the other things that are required to work outside of the home. I have recently decided I have not just lost everything; I have a great education and mind and I owe it to myself to use it. Just because I cannot pace back and forth giving a closing statement does not mean I should do nothing. My dreams are less grand than they were before, I want to be proud of my work and I want my employers to be satisfied. I will work as hard as I can because I want to begin working as soon as possible and cultivate long term relationships where possible with employers. I have unrivaled honesty and integrity; I am very proud of those qualities so I will never submit work that I am not proud to call my own.  less

    I am a Spanish lawyer, based in Madrid but used to working and living in international environments. My career so far has been based on Law, IT and writing, all of them having a similar weight since I have been writing lawsuits, working as an IT Consultant for some projects for the Spanish Ministry of Justice, and blogging on a regular basis for both personal and third party's blogs. I love writing and I have a lot of experience doing it, as well as translating English-Spanish-English, and that's why I can supply unique contents for websites, as well as high quality translations, at very affordable fares. So if you need a regular or an occasional writer, please don't hesitate contacting me, we will surely reach an agreement on conditions.  less

    [![best freelance writers ][1]][2] # ![][3]![][4]![][5]![][6]I am a Senior Associate in a firm based in Makati. I practice corporate law, litigation & government contracts. Active practice of law complements my odesk tasks as I am able to continuously hone my skills.

Feel free to go over my profile to help you decide if I would be a good candidate for your legal requirements.

Only about 20% pass the bar each year. Philippine law is also patterened after US & Spanish laws . We apply both common & civil law concepts & our legal language is English. Our method of instruction & practice, therefore, make us ideal candidates for the preparation of int'l standard legal documents. For indiv odesk buyers or start-up co's., I perform tasks on my own & work closely with them, paying particular attention to their budgets and deadlines. I also have an odesk provider co , Virtual Legal Services Group, which was created to cater to law firms abroad. VLSG is composed of RP lawyers from top schools, i.e., Ateneo & UP - schools which have produced the highest number of bar passers and top notchers in RP history.
