As the legal profession changes, attorneys are looking for more flexible ways to manage their workloads and increase their income. On the other hand, law firms, in-house legal departments, and legal staffing companies are looking for more flexible approaches to hire attorneys for short term projects. Typical use cases include attorneys needing specialized assistance for a client matter or are looking for attorneys licensed in another jurisdiction to handle part of a case or project. Another situation may be the need to rapidly scale the resources of a firm or in-house legal team in order to meet the sudden needs of a client (think bet-the-company litigation or mergers and acquisition activity). Legably is the solution for all of these challenges.
Legably is an online freelance staffing platform that connects vetted and licensed attorneys who are looking for contract engagements with other attorneys, law firms, and legal staffing companies in need of staffing support.

When attorneys are hired, they agree to the scope of work, the timeline it will be completed in, and the total amount that the lawyer performing the work will charge.
