How does Singularity University benefit by working with UpCounsel?
Through UpCounsel, Singularity has been able to work with talented attorneys like Jann to solve their legal issues in a timely fashion.
Joey can rest assured that his UpCounsel lawyer will have an unrelenting focus on providing only the highest quality legal experience.
The end result for Singularity is that launching projects, testing ideas, or expanding internal teams and departments never have to take a backseat now that their overflow and niche legal needs are under control with UpCounsel.
As an expanding global benefit corporation, legal issues seem to arise everyday that Singularity University has neither the time nor resources to deal with. Singularity operates within five business units: Educational Programs, Conferences and Summits, SU Labs, Global and Community, and Online. The Conferences and Summits unit in particular, which produces 2-3 day events featuring leading thinkers in technology, has become confronted with a wide array of legal challenges.
Singularity needed a speedy, high quality solution for this growing department. In particular, they needed someone to review contracts from vendors, work on the terms and conditions that conference participants agree to, and deal with media releases for their speakers. Therefore, their search for an experienced attorney to review and draft contracts on an ongoing/indefinite engagement was underway.
As all of their contract needs began to form, Singularity knew they had to find the right attorney to help with these issues and supplement their own counsel. They had heard of UpCounsel and decided to give it a try because, if it worked, it would keep the Conference and Summit unit on track in its development.
Singularity took a few minutes to post their particular ongoing project on UpCounsel and within hours began receiving custom proposals from experienced attorneys about how to tackle their needs along with an outline of what it would cost.
After reviewing their options, they decided to go with Jann Moorhead, a global transactional attorney with over 25 years of experience representing multinational corporations and startups at every stage.
