UpCounsel is the fastest growing online workplace for business legal needs, where businesses are enabled to easily hire and manage trusted attorneys.
We are a marketplace for legal services where businesses can efficiently access a high quality and on-demand legal workforce. Even though SMB’s currently spend over $100 billion on legal fees each year, many businesses do not have access to quality and affordable legal advice that they seek to make critical business decisions. We leverage technology to make the historically painful process of finding and managing legal services an efficient and delightful experience for both businesses and attorneys.
Currently, large and small businesses alike use UpCounsel to tap into a talented community of attorneys for projects like business formation and compliance, employment and HR issues, patents, trademarks, licensing and other intellectual property, legal due diligence, legal research and dispute resolution. The rapidly growing UpCounsel community is made up of part-time, solo, and boutique attorneys who hail from global law firms, graduated from top law schools and/or have years of experience under their belt.
At UpCounsel, we are excited to bring technologic innovation to one of the oldest industries in the world. We are looking for like-minded individuals who are not intimidated by challenging the status quo!
