How Much Does a Local Freelance Lawyer Cost?

How much you should pay for a Freelance Lawyer depends amongst others on the reason why you need a Freelance Lawyer. Also, determining the average fees charged by a Freelance Lawyer is very hard to assess as it depends on so many factors and circumstances. Usually, a Freelance Lawyer charges by the hour, but fixed fees arrangements are becoming standard practice as well. Factors that affect the hourly rate charged, or the fixed fee arrangement, include the region where the Freelance Lawyer is located, the experience level, the type of clients or markets served and last but not least what kind of legal services are being provided which can be a more standardized routine kind of work or highly specialized work.

For example, low-value legal compliance work may be outsourced to a legal service provider somewhere in Asia for less than USD 25 per hour while the typical fees involved for providing legal advice on major intellectual property transactions in the US or Europe can easily exceed USD 600 per hour.

Via our marketplace, you can search for any kind of Freelance Lawyer needed and fine-tune on key factors that affect pricing, like region, specialization, hourly rate, experience level and types of clients served. When you have found your ideal candidate for the job to be done, you can directly get in touch via email or phone and start working, without any charges or interference from our platform. Find out how it works.

To get a general feeling about typical fees involved in the legal services industry you can also check out Robert Walters Annual Salary Survey. This survey gives very detailed insights about permanent, interim and contract placements across most part of the professional services industry, including the legal industry, and differentiates on aspects like region, experience level, big firms or smaller ones and much more.

Not Sure Whether to Hire a Freelancer, Advisor or a Firm for Legal Services Needed?

This is not a simple question to answer and depends on a lot of factors. First of all, it depends on your needs and the type of work to be done. Your available budget may play a role but should not be decisive because freelancers have a reputation to be relatively cheap while firms tend to be more expensive, but the same can apply vice versa. As for the quality of work, this fully depends on the freelancers and consultants/firms you hire. A freelancer may provide better quality work in half the time than that a firm could do. But, again the same could be vice versa. Furthermore, each of these service providers come with their own pro's and con's.

A Freelance Lawyer performs its work independently, selling work or services by the hour, day or job. Both parties involved have no intention to establish a long-term structural working relationship with each other. Often freelancers worked as a consultant for firms in their field of expertise, and at some point, in their career, they decided to do the same as they did but then via the freelancing route.

A Corporate Lawyer is a person who is paid to provide professional or expert advice in a particular field or specialty, who is employed by a Law Firm whose business is to provide these Legal  Services via its Corporate Lawyers.

Professional service firms, like Boutique Law Firms, exist in many different industries. They include tax advisors, lawyers, marketing professionals, management consultants, and web developers among others. They can be any firm that offers customized, knowledge-based services to clients. When clients hire advisory firms, they generally do so because of that company's credibility and reputation.

It is common knowledge that a business is only as good as its people. So with that in mind, a good starting point is to try to find the best person for the job first, and this can be a freelancer, a particular employed consultant, or a firm that has specialized in the field you are looking for.

Finally, the good news is that you can search for all these types of Business Lawyers on our platform (Freelance Lawyers, Corporate Layers, and Boutique Law Firms) and compare them on the criteria that are relevant for you. Find out how it works.

Independents in the Legal Industry

Our platform focuses on independents in the Professional Services Industry, including the Legal Industry. In general, Independents are independent firms that are owner operated, they tend to work in their own country only and the bigger the standalone business is, the more different types of services provided. Boutique firm or agency is also a commonly used name for these types of entrepreneurial businesses. They tend to provide highly specialized niche services, but they may very well also directly compete with the major international firms in their industry. Strictly speaking, freelancers also qualify as Independents.

It happens very often that experienced senior professionals break away from the major players that hired them to set up their own independent firm and start a more entrepreneurial journey. Besides autonomy and more control, the ability to better define personal purpose is a typical driver to work for Independents or to start one yourself.

Due to their size, market power, and marketing budgets, larger international firms are usually easily found in the market. Small independent types of businesses do not have this luxury, and as such, they need to be more creative to find new work on a continuous basis. Using platforms like Consultants 500 is a perfect way to create extra opportunities because our primary focus and purpose are to help clients find independents in the Professional Services Industry, including independents in the Legal Industry.
