What Is a Legal Marketplace?

A legal marketplace is a platform for on demand attorneys and freelance contract lawyers to connect with potential clients. If you want to find legal software to grow your firm, a marketplace provides networking solutions through a community of global legal professionals.

For attorneys, a legal marketplace can provide an excellent means of attracting new clients and growing their practice. They can also review lawyers from various specializations and backgrounds to build a strong legal team for their firm.

If you are a client seeking legal services or counsel, the marketplace is a reliable resource for you to find qualified lawyers from various backgrounds.

Despite serious legal need, many people do not actually hire a lawyer. The legal marketplace poses an accessible opportunity for people that need legal advice or services to connect with attorneys that can help them.

At ContractsCounsel, we help lawyers and clients connect over various projects with a fluid, on-demand job board. A legal marketplace is the best resource for anyone looking to use technology to their advantage.

Here is an article that defines marketplace.

What Does a Legal Marketplace Do?

Legal marketplaces connect attorneys and clients in a simple, easy-to-use platform. Clients can create postings on a job board for lawyers to review, as well as directly request free estimates from licensed lawyers in their state.

The legal marketplace creates transparency for clients by providing the option to review lawyers’ profiles, including their biographies and work experience.

For professionals, the marketplace offers an easier method of attracting new clients and obtaining new projects. You can also network with other lawyers, which makes the legal marketplace a valuable tool during business formation as well.

Here is an article exploring the new legal marketplace economy.

Who Can Use a Legal Marketplace?

The legal marketplace has two audiences:

  1. People seeking legal services or counsel
  2. Lawyers seeking new clients

You can use a legal marketplace as an individual or business if you need legal advice or services to draft a contract or review a contract.

Lawyers can use the legal marketplace to find new clients and take on projects. There are some freelance contract lawyers who are available for-hire on an as-needed basis as well.

The online legal marketplace can be competitive, so joining the best platforms is a key to success. Being active on the platform, responding to postings, and always being attentive to potential clients will yield the best results.

Here is an article with advice on how to advertise yourself as a lawyer.

What Can I Use a Legal Marketplace For?

You can use a legal marketplace to:

  • Find lawyers near you
  • Learn more about legal services
  • Review templates and contract samples
  • Reach out to attorneys

Some of the services you may use a legal marketplace for are:

You can also use a legal marketplace to ask questions and receive responses from experienced, vetted attorneys. Doing so can make acquiring legal support much easier and less time-consuming.

Benefits of Using a Legal Marketplace

There are several advantages to using a legal marketplace as both a client and attorney.

1. Greater Efficiency

Lawyers can benefit from an easier method of attracting and attaining new clients; individuals can remove much of the stress and hassle from finding lawyers thanks to the centralized nature of a marketplace.

Through the marketplace platform, both professionals and clients can find one another more easily and determine if they are a good fit. Ultimately, this leads to faster, greater results for both parties.

2. Affordability

One of the primary reasons people don’t hire lawyers is the cost. However, a legal marketplace gives clients an advantage. They can easily review the hourly rate and average cost of hiring a lawyer in their area, as well as the typical price range for specific services.

The result yields a fair and competitive marketplace that favors the client’s budget. Clients can review cost, determine what they are willing to pay, and ensure that a lawyer is charging fairly for the service.

With clear legal pricing and information readily available, it becomes easier for clients to secure legal services within a specified budget.

3. High Demand

A dedicated legal marketplace has plenty of opportunities for lawyers to identify new work opportunities. It also presents the option to specialize in particular types of work, such as startup lawyering or projects to draft a contract.

Since most clients use the internet to initially find a lawyer, a marketplace is the ideal spot for attorneys from all backgrounds and experience levels to find work. Additionally, the marketplace allows you to connect with clients early in their legal journeys and form long-term relationships with them with less competition.

4. Find Legal Talent More Easily

If you want to collaborate with other professionals, the legal marketplace is the perfect platform for networking. Lawyers can connect with other attorneys, collaborate, and even seek partners for their firms.

Here is an article that explores more of the benefits of a legal marketplace.

How Much Does It Cost to Use a Legal Marketplace?

The cost of a legal marketplace varies, but clients can post for free and receive free bids. Lawyers typically retain 100% of their earnings, though some platforms may charge membership or commission fees.

As far as legal services go, pricing varies. Lawyers tend to charge between $150 to $500 an hour; they can also offer flat fees for certain services.

Here is an article where you can learn more about legal pricing.

How Much Do Attorneys Make Working with a Legal Marketplace?

Lawyers can charge their usual rates on a platform, or they can choose to provide services for fixed fees. Attorneys on ContractsCounsel can sign up for free accounts and use the platform to grow their business without any added expense.

Here is an article where you can learn more about joining a legal marketplace.
