What Clients use UpCounsel?
Both first-time and seasoned entrepreneurs use UpCounsel to form legal entities, draft initial business contracts, and generally ensure their companies get off the ground with a solid legal framework.
Our startup clients use UpCounsel to manage both their day-to-day needs (contracts, employment, corporate maintenance) as well as more specialized projects like patents, immigration and venture financing.
Our larger enterprise clients often have dedicated legal teams but use UpCounsel to keep up with general overflow work or tap into our broad network for projects that require a very specific degree of expertise.
Lawyers use UpCounsel to streamline their practice
“In addition to the wide array of interesting clients, UpCounsel’s platform allows me to focus my time on things I care about (my clients, my family) instead of worrying about things like marketing and billing. I love that I can exchange messages with a prospective client on my phone while I walk my dog.”
