Alifery is an online legal marketplace where in-house teams, businesses and law firms can find freelance lawyers to work flexibly on a project-by-project basis or one off tasks. Clients post assignments on the Alifery platform and Freelancers pitch for that work based on their experience and availability.

The Client then gets to choose their Freelancer for their project.

Please ensure you complete your company profile to help attract the best legal Freelancers (who may be working on other projects) to pitch for your projects.

ASX listed and privately held companies, small to medium businesses, private practice law firms, government departments and not for profit organizations.

If your company/firm has an ABN you can sign up as a Client with Alifery. We’re neither size-ist or type-ist.

We handpick each Freelancer on the Alifery platform from a large number of applications, based on their skills, experience and education.

For those that make the cut we undertake a further vetting process to ensure only the best legal Freelancers are in our talent pool.

Freelancers do have their own insurance covers in place. However, it’s up to you to ensure the insurance policies the Freelancers has in place meets your projects requirements.

Due to privacy we are unable to disclose these policies to you but if required, copies of these policies can be requested from the Freelancer.

It depends, however once you post a project, you can start receiving proposals straight away. Please keep in mind our Freelancers may be busy and focused attending to other projects so allow some time after your project is posted to receive proposals.

Remember, our Freelancers’ availability fluctuate so the sooner you post the better.

You decide whether you require the freelancer to work onsite with you, remote or a mix between onsite and remote.

We recommend this to be agreed at the beginning of the project but we understand things can change.  Communication is key with your Freelancer.

Alifery is free to sign up as a Client.

You set your budget at the time you post a project and you can decide to pay an hourly, daily or monthly fee or you may decide to pay a fixed fee for your project.

Remember, a Freelancer may counter with a price proposal after reviewing your project brief.

For each project, we charge a commission of 15% plus GST on top of the amount agreed with the Freelancer.

Freelancers must notify you upfront if they have a conflict of interest, or potential conflict of interest.

Absolutely. We love it when there is a perfect match.

If you appoint a Freelancer that you have met through Alifery on a permanent basis, you’ll be charged a recruitment fee of 20% + GST of the Freelancer’s annual salary package.

You can find out more in our Terms.

You and your Freelancer will decide at the beginning of the project at what stage(s) they’ll invoice. Once your Freelancer invoices you (via Alifery), you have seven days to pay by either credit card or bank deposit.

The Freelance Lawyer you engage with of course. They are responsible for delivering the work and agreeing to terms with you.

However, at the end of the project you’ll have the opportunity to review and rate your experience with your Freelancer.

(This really matters to our Freelancers because this goes to their profile and will impact on whether they are successful when bidding on future projects. Plus, as part of our quality assurance of Freelancers, Freelancers who consistently receive poor reviews may be removed from Alifery altogether – so they’re going to do the best for you!)

Yes of course!  Just so you know, any further work with your Freelancer will need to be processed through the platform and Alifery’s fee will apply.  You can easily re engage a freelancer through Alifery.

Please refer to our Terms for more information.

We do allow rolling on of the project.  Just close the project when it comes to an end.

Remember to check first with the Freelancer to see whether they are available, as they may have other projects to attend to.

The sooner you notify the Freelancer the better.

You can post a private & invite only project. So, only Freelancers who are invited by you will be able to view the project details.

At the end of each project you will have the option to rate the freelancer and leave comments based on the work they completed.  We will monitor all ratings and reviews to ensure we address any concerns with the freelancer.

Yes, you also get rated.  This is to allow a fair system and provide two sides.  We will also monitor clients as we want to ensure our freelancers are getting quality work.

Alifery is currently designed for Australian clients and legal professionals with an Australian qualification.
