The Calgary Chamber of Commerce capped Small Business Week by naming Goodlawyer the ATB Small Business of the Year on Friday at its annual awards gala.
The ultimate hardware at Small Business Week, the ATB Small Business of the Year Award is presented to the Calgary small business that has demonstrated significant business achievement, sustained growth, and the potential to become a true pillar of our city; a leader in Calgary’s business community.
Founded in Calgary in 2019 by Brett Colvin, Goodlawyer is a Calgary-based Canadian legaltech startup on a mission to disrupt the traditional method of obtaining legal services. Goodlawyer achieves this by offering a platform that connects clients with lawyers quickly and efficiently at a fraction of firm rates.
Colvin was inspired to start the company after working for one of Canada’s largest law firms and realizing how few people could afford the legal services they need, and has since helped 4,500 entrepreneurs.
“Calgary’s small business community continues to advance our city’s economic future with innovative solutions, and Goodlawyer is a shining example of a small business challenging and disrupting the norm,” said Deborah Yedlin, president and CEO of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce.
