Get Free Legal Assistance with the new Freelancers Legal Clinic

Freelancers and independent workers often deal with a number of legal challenges, and accessing legal assistance can be time consuming and extremely costly. Because independent workers manage an expansive cross-section of business formation, daily operations, management, financing, and virtually every aspect in between, the logistical and legal issues that may arise can be intricate even for seasoned professionals.

We’re here to help! Through funding provided by the New York City Council, we are offering NYC freelancers a free one-on-one legal consultation with an in-house attorney to answer questions or concerns covering: 

  • Contract Review, Negotiation, and Drafting: Ensure that your contracts are fair, clear, and enforceable.
  • Business Formation Counseling: Get expert guidance on the best structure for your business and assistance in setting it up.
  • Intellectual Property Concerns: Protect your work and understand your rights to your creations.
  • Non-payment Concerns: Tackle issues related to delayed or non-payment professionally with legal backing.
