LegalShield Joins #OpenWeStand to Support Small Businesses

ADA, Okla. – June 17, 2020 – LegalShield, the world’s leading provider of affordable legal and privacy protection plans, said today that it has joined GoDaddy’s #OpenWeStand coalition to help small business owners navigate the challenging times presented by coronavirus pandemic. More than 70 leading U.S. companies have pledged support for small businesses through #OpenWeStand so far. 

Launched in April by GoDaddy, #OpenWeStand provides small business owners with expert advice and special offers on services and tools and creates a community for entrepreneurs to share insights and experiences with one another. With the rise of online scams and fraud, LegalShield will offer its individual IDShield identity protection/privacy management plan subscriptions to GoDaddy customers at no charge for 60 days.  Additionally, small business owners will have free access to LegalShield’s COVID-19 Resource Center, as well as the ability to subscribe to legal plans designed specifically to their business needs or tap into LegalShield’s nationwide network of experienced lawyers. 

“Individuals and companies are having to adapt to very difficult circumstances, but we believe that collective action will help everyone through this period,” said Rhett Weiss, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at LegalShield. “We’re proud to be a part of this initiative providing support, resources, and community to small businesses that are struggling in the current environment.”
