The legal service freelancers and lawyers on our platform are independent freelancers. Many jurisdictions require professionals to have indemnity insurance covering the type of work they do, but public liability insurance isn’t a legal requirement for freelancers. However, many freelancers get liability insurance when they get a job from a employer that requires it, and we encourage all our freelancers to have liability insurance coverage that will protect them from bearing the financial burden of a lawsuit or other claims. A employer also has the choice to make this a requirement.
