UpRight Law : Named One of Top 100 Digital Companies in Chicago by Built in Chicago

10/26/2016 | 03:55pm EST

UpRight honored by Built in Chicago for second consecutive year

UpRight Law today announced it has been named one of the Top 100 Digital Companies in Chicago by Built in Chicago in 2016. This is the second year in a row the national consumer law firm has been listed among the key employers that are fueling the city’s growth as a technology hub.

“We started UpRight three years ago with the idea of using technology to deliver access to justice to millions of hardworking Americans who were previously underserved by the legal system. Three years, 150 employees and a couple of office expansions later, I think it’s fair to say we’re making progress,” said Ed Scanlan, Chief Executive, UpRight Law. “Being named to Built in Chicago’s Top 100 list for the second year in a row positions UpRight alongside some of the most impactful tech companies in the United States, and validates the work our team puts in every day to deliver on our mission and to make UpRight a great place to be.”

Founded in Chicago in 2013, UpRight is the first national online consumer law firm in the U.S. and it is one of the fastest growing firms in the country with more than 300 local partner attorneys, averaging more than 20 years of experience, across all 50 states.

UpRight is changing the way legal services are delivered by using technology to connect consumers with the firm’s lawyers. UpRight provides consumers with affordable, convenient access to high-quality legal representation by removing the most common obstacles that prevent Americans from accessing the justice system – such as inconvenient business hours, geographic distance between lawyers and consumers, intimidation of the justice system and poor payment plans.

UpRight opens new markets of underserved consumers for the legal industry and provides its partner attorneys with the same support that Am Law 100 firms provide their attorneys. UpRight’s headquarters in Chicago handles backend functions, such as payment processing, customer service, case management software and malpractice insurance so its lawyers can focus on practicing law. The result is that UpRight’s partner attorneys earn higher salaries with no additional overhead.

The annual list by Built in Chicago ranks digital technology employers from data analytics startups to e-commerce businesses and digital agencies based on the full-time employee numbers in their Chicago office. Since 2015, 700 new companies have emerged in this sector, bringing the total to more than 3,900. The top 100 digital companies alone hire more than 40,000 employees in the city.
