Legal River Launches an Online Marketplace for Legal Services is a unique website which allows business to source their legal work through a marketplace platform.

Washington, DC, June 03, 2009 --( Legal River has launched an online marketplace where small and medium sized businesses can find lawyers to meet all of their legal needs. The company has recently emerged from its private beta and is available to all businesses in the D.C. Metropolitan area.

“The businesses that we serve are the engine of the American economy, and no one was providing them an efficient and reliable way to find the legal help that they need.” said Ben Hatten, one of the three co-founders of the company.

Legal River allows businesses to post their legal needs, anything from business formation to intellectual property issues, and receive personalized responses from multiple lawyers. These lawyer responses are then presented in a clear side-by-side format which allows businesses to easily compare and choose the right lawyer.

Taylor L. who was one of the beta users said "I had a legal issue arise where my general counsel didn't have experience. I didn't know where to go to find a lawyer with the kind of experience I needed. Within two days of posting my issue on Legal River, I had multiple interested lawyers send me their profiles, all of who had experience in the area I needed help. Legal River found me the attorney I needed, and I didn't have to spend weeks on the phone trying to interview lawyers. I would recommend any small business owner to have Legal River in their bookmarks."

Now more than ever the services of Legal River are relevant to the businesses community. Given the time and cash constraints that many small businesses are currently facing, a fast and cost effective platform for businesses to find a lawyer is more of a necessity than a luxury.
