So many reason freelance professionals are benefiting from the gig economy, they have an opportunity to communicate and connect with new clients, exercise their freedom and flexibility. In 2017, the freelancing economy managed to generate over a trillion dollars, just in the US alone. It’s expected over 50% of America’s workforce will freelance by 2020.
Our goal is to create a system that connects trusted and proven legal professionals with businesses and individuals. Most online talent platforms will allow anyone to join their system, however, the experts registered with us are carefully vetted to ensure they meet our client’s needs and meet SRA’s standards. Businesses come to us because they want to engage with a professional who can answer their questions or help with a specific project, so the process of registering with us is a little stricter than joining other platforms. We are dedicated to following the SRA’s guidelines coming into affect this November. Our platform provides the perfect portal for lawyers looking to be sole practitioners in 2020.
With us, you have freedom and flexibility.
You have the freedom and flexibility to choose the clients and projects you wish to engage with, on what terms and where you work from.
