Security & Privacy

Secure Device
Communicate Privately & Securely Manage Work

Legal work should be confidential and we take advanced security measures to maintain both the privacy and the security of your entire UpCounsel experience. Our site requires a 256-bit SSL encrypted connection on every page to protect your information and allows for peace of mind as you post projects, upload documents, communicate with attorneys, and pay invoices.

“We’ve designed the UpCounsel application with the sensitive nature of legal work in mind. Legal matters, communications and documents are kept safe at all times.”
Private job postings

Jobs posted on UpCounsel are not publicly accessible and may only be viewed by lawyers that have passed our thorough vetting and screening process. Additionally, we do not show your full name on a job post - allowing you to remain anonymous and only share your full identity with lawyers when you feel comfortable doing so.

Private messaging

Our secure messaging platform allows you to communicate with lawyers without the need to disclose your full name, email address, or any other contact information. After you engage a lawyer, you can continue to communicate privately through UpCounsel and have a record of your communication history accessible online for future reference.

Secure payments

UpCounsel’s full-service billing platform allows you to pay both your legal fees and any filing fees in one secure location, without the need to provide your billing information to numerous third-parties. We’ve integrated with Stripe and are backed by Verisign, both industry leaders in secure transactions and customer protection.
