CHICAGO, IL OCTOBER 20, 2015
Legal technology company, Legal Hero, today announced that it is expanding into Illinois, its fourth market in less than a year. Legal Hero is changing the way that legal services are offered by providing startups and entrepreneurs with on-demand access to experienced attorneys at significant price savings over traditional law firms.
Following successful launches in Florida, Massachusetts, and New York, Legal Hero is bringing its unique services to Chicago to help support the growing entrepreneurial community in the region. Legal Hero will equip these local companies with the legal help they need at fixed prices, helping them focus on growing their business without worrying about massive legal retainers and billable hours. In conjunction with its launch in Illinois, Legal Hero has created a guide for ‘Starting a Business in Illinois’ to assist local entrepreneurs in creating their company.
“Chicago is home to a vibrant community of startups and entrepreneurs who are looking for partners that understand their need for on-demand experts when navigating the often complicated legal framework of starting a business,” said Annie Webber co-founder & CEO, Legal Hero. “Starting a business and meeting growth goals is a tough enough battle, legal issues shouldn’t be a roadblock for entrepreneurs. By connecting companies with experienced, vetted attorneys from our extensive network of experts in the region at fixed prices, we help remove the headache and unexpected costs associated with traditional law firms.”
Launched in November 2014, Legal Hero is a legal technology company that matches experienced lawyers to small businesses at significant price savings over traditional law firms. Unlike other attorney matching services or providers of blank legal forms, Legal Hero brings quality and pricing certainty found through its vetted network of lawyers and transparent pricing of projects.
“Legal Hero was a seamless, headache-free experience. From submitting a project request to choosing my lawyer all the way to bill payment, the site is user friendly, easy, and transparent,” said Manicube, a rapidly growing startup with locations in Chicago, New York City and Boston. “My lawyer was fantastic. He was responsive to my questions and because of Legal Hero’s fixed project fee model, I was never nervous about running up the clock. Legal Hero takes the hassle out of working with a large, expensive law firm.”
Legal Hero’s network of vetted, experienced attorneys can alleviate the burden of common legal issues that small companies face, including general corporate work, such as entity formation and contracts, immigration, employment work, real estate, and intellectual property.
“Legal Hero has been an incredible source of the types of entrepreneurial clients that make being a lawyer fulfilling and inspiring. Said Patrick Richards, owner of Richards Patent Law P.C., one of the Chicago-based attorneys on Legal Hero’s network. “And it is a great resource for the clients to find the attorneys that can make the most meaningful difference in their businesses.”
Legal Hero recently announced the launch of a new on-demand General Counsel service, providing small businesses with all the benefits of having an in-house lawyer, without the excessive fees associated with hiring an internal or external general counsel.
