There’s no one way to be a freelancer or to work with one.
Perhaps the pull of the corporate jungle just wasn’t enough, and you left your job. You’re looking for the freedom of freelancing, but want to reduce the risk of under-employment.
You’re a already a Freelancer and need an agreement drafted. Maybe it’s taken you ages to get the payment you deserve from previous projects and you want to make sure that never happens again.
You’ve got a business and have seen the benefits of enlisting a skilled freelancer to do the work you or your employees can’t do. You’re thinking about the uncertainties that come with time-dependent projects, and want to make sure you don’t lose out.
No matter who you are, remember that you’re number one!
Your interests come first. Protect yourself legally.
The majority of disputes between Freelancers and Businesses could have easily been avoided.
How, you ask?
Time constraints may encourage the parties involved in projects to progress all guns blazing.
- That means that sometimes, a business, freelancer or client may be unsure of the expectations for the project.
- Regardless of whether or not a relationship is personal or professional, miscommunication can hurt.
It might seem like talking in detail about the project beforehand could take up time that you feel like you don’t have, but the legal disputes will definitely be more time-consuming – and expensive.
- With the essential legal documents for freelancing, everyone involved can save themselves time, money and headaches.
We understand that not everyone can afford to pay £3,000 – £5,000 for legal contracts.
You’re caught between a rock and a hard place – between lawyers’ sky-high prices and your bootstrapped wallet.
We’re here to save the day (and some money for you!).

DON’T BELIEVE THESE DOCUMENTS ARE VITAL TO YOUR SURVIVAL?
Just look at how important a Freelancer’s Agreement was for this designer in the UK.
He was contacted by a large athletics company that wanted him to design a prototype.
We wouldn’t blame you if you heard ‘large company’ and thought that it must be ‘THE PERFECT CLIENT’ or ‘THE PERFECT PROJECT’ or ‘A FOOT IN THE DOOR’.
Unfortunately, it all became a nightmare.
The initial ‘brief’ was anything but – as the client kept adding new things for the freelancer to do.
Many months down the road, the freelancer realised he didn’t have a legal leg to stand on because he’d failed to develop a contract.
The worst part?
When he tried to get what he was owed for the work he completed, he was met with unreturned telephone calls and ignored emails!
He could have, but without the initial legal documents, it would’ve been a bit like an Ant trying to take on a Pack of Lions!
If a Freelancer had drawn up some kind of agreement which included some clauses to protect himself (e.g. to properly define the terms of the relationship or what would happen if a dispute occurred), then all of this could have been simply avoided!
Give legal risks a miss with Linkilaw.
WHY IS AN NDA IMPORTANT TO FREELANCERS AND BUSINESSES?
No Discussion Allowed!
Getting a Non Disclosure Agreement does not stop you from working with other clients, even similar ones.
It does, however, stop you from disclosing inside information to third parties.
Don’t worry, there are major benefits for both businesses and freelancers:
- A business’ confidential information is protected.
- A Freelancer’s right to work for multiple clients within your target market is also protected.
Clients always trust a freelancer that offers an NDA because it shows that you’re proactive, and that you care about the project and your client’s privacy – which in turn makes you look more professional, and will make a client more likely to work with you in the future.
WHAT ABOUT TERMS OF BUSINESS?
Tinkoff Bank, a respectable bank operating in Russia, should have had the sense to get its army of lawyers to read over their own Terms and Conditions.
As a result, they paid the consequences.
In 2013, Dmitry Argarkov applied for a Tinkoff credit card but didn’t like the interest rates on offer.
He amended the Terms and Conditions and then sent the contract back to Tinkoff. Without looking over the new contract, they agreed to all changes made by Argarkov.
Argarkov, thinking ahead, included clauses in the event that Tinkoff Bank finally realised the extent of the mess it was in.
Every time the bank failed to comply with the rules, it would be fined 3 million rubles (£58,716). If Tinkoff tried to cancel the contract, it would have to pay him 6 million rubles.
Tinkoff Bank and Argarkov were involved in a long lawsuit as a result.
This case has proved to be expensive as it was rumoured that Argarkov received a £575,000 settlement.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG?
Why Can’t I Download A Legal Document I Found Online?
What’s ‘free’ now could cost you your entire business later down the line!
You need robust contracts that are the result of a legal professional taking the time to find out what you and your business need.
Why Are These Documents Way Less Expensive Than Ones Many Law Firms Provide?
We are a startup ourselves. It is not our purpose to take from you what little liquidity you have. Our big idea is to disrupt the legal industry, and get out the way so you can grow your business.
Our lawyers do not charge extortionate fees. Although many of them work for big city firms they wanted a lifestyle change, allowing them to focus on lowering their costs whilst maintaining their high standards.
You need to ensure that you have the most cost-effective, experienced, and relatable lawyer to support you and your needs.
We are here to help you.
How Are The Documents Customised? Are There Any Time Restrictions On Amendments I Can Make?
Customisation is included in the price! Gone are the days where you’re left wondering how much the legal work will cost. Our prices are fixed.
Whatever work is needed is completed within three working days, as we make it our mission to understand your business in order to draft the right documents for it.
However, if the document is complex it may take longer, something we will discuss with you during your initial conversation.
Amendments can be made within the two-week period following purchase.
How Do Linkilaw Prices Compare To Those Of Traditional Lawyers?
We wanted to find out for you.
We needed to ensure our prices were a lot cheaper. So our friendly team rang up lawyers and law firms in the UK. When we finally got through to them, they told us:
The prices ranged from £100 – £1,500 an hour.
That’s an expensive cup of coffee if you go to their offices for a meeting.
After searching far and wide for answers, we were able to find the average UK fixed price options.
We were shocked by the result.
We swore to protect our customers from the lack of transparency and spiralling legal costs that comes from hourly rates.
WHAT DO WE GUARANTEE YOU?
We can’t always guarantee that we will keep our prices at this level. But we’re working hard to continue to streamline our service, to keep prices low without compromising quality. We know you want a great service, competitive pricing and a fast turnaround.
So if you like what you see on the page here today – book it now – as these prices will likely change over time.
