We’re pleased to share that UpCounsel has been recognized as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” by Entrepreneur magazine on its 360 list, the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America, for the second straight year. UpCounsel is recognized as “a well-rounded company that has mastered a balance of impact, innovation, growth and leadership.”
“We wouldn’t be able to drive change in the legal industry without our customers, the innovative business leaders ready to look beyond the status quo to use technology to modernize their legal operations,” said CEO Matt Faustman. “We feel lucky to get to work with such inspiring companies and business leaders.”
UpCounsel is the world’s largest and fastest growing virtual marketplace for legal services. Built on technology, UpCounsel eliminates cost structures like partner pools and infrastructure expenses to provide businesses with access to high quality, cost-effective legal services. UpCounsel is trusted by thousands of companies, including HotelTonight, Airbnb, Coppola Winery and FinancialForce.
“UpCounsel gives HotelTonight seamless access to the high-quality legal advice and subject expertise that we’d expect from a big law firm but at a lower price,” said General Counsel Karen Klein.
Entrepreneur magazine identified honorees through a comprehensive study of independently-owned companies and a proprietary algorithm, among other advanced analytics. Recognized companies are identified as leaders across four metrics that “reflect major pillars of entrepreneurship” – innovation, growth, leadership and impact.
“Our annual evaluation offers a 360-degree analysis of the current private-business landscape,” explains Lisa Murray, chief insights officer of Entrepreneur Media, Inc. “Top performers are determined by how well-rounded they are in these four key operative areas. Entrepreneurship is a complex endeavor – this listing recognizes those who have mastered the challenge and are thriving this year.”
UpCounsel has also been shortlisted by Above the Law as one of 15 “companies developing innovative products or services that are shaking up the legal marketplace” and among the “Go-to Law Firms of Boston.”
