Every day, we have the pleasure of working with innovative startups that are making a true difference in the world around us. This Customer Spotlight, we’d like to introduce you to UpCounsel. They make it easy for you to find talented and local attorneys at an affordable rate.

This is our Spotlight on UpCounsel:
Who are you, and what does your business do?
UpCounsel. We are the world’s largest virtual law firm for businesses of any size. We allow businesses to get high quality, cost-effective legal services. While our lawyers serve as outside general counsel to many companies, we also assist with specialized legal work like IP, immigration, commercial contracts, litigation, and much more.
How did you get here?
We started UpCounsel 2 years ago. We realized there was a whole new world in B2B services coming and legal was likely to be one of the major areas to change. One month after launching, we applied to AngelPad in San Francisco and got accepted. Since then, our company has continued to evolve in so many exciting ways.
Tell us about your mission. What is your business passionate about?
Our mission is to make the legal experience remarkable. If you make legal services high quality, transparent, and cost-effective – then you empower business owners to make better decisions to ultimately allocate more capital towards hiring, marketing and sales – all great things for healthier businesses, which is what we are passionate about.
Tell us about your product/service!
High quality outside general counsel legal services at half the price of traditional law firms. The lawyers on UpCounsel are former BIG firm lawyers, from top law schools, and former general counsels that now practice on the UpCounsel network.
How does your product/service impact the world?
By delivering transparency and reasonable fees for high quality business legal work. We are empowering businesses of all sizes with a robust legal infrastructure and more capital to allocate to growing their company from the savings they would not get from the big, traditional law firms.
