GLENDALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LegalZoom, the trusted technology platform and leading provider of modern legal solutions, today announced that John Suh, CEO, was named an Ernst & Young (EY) Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 Award winner. This award recognizes leaders of high-growth companies in over 145 cities in 60 countries who have demonstrated extraordinary success and excellence in areas such as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Suh was selected by a panel of independent judges consisting of leading CEOs, private capital investors, previous award winners, and other recognized business leaders.
“15 years ago, we launched on the belief that great people armed with great technology could help those the legal profession had turned away,” said Suh. “We stand today as a global company over 1,000 strong, helping close to four million people with their legal needs.
“While democratizing law has served as our guide, it’s been a long and winding path. We have transitioned from self-help software to legal plans to now owning a UK law firm with a staff of more than 200. Continuous innovation has stemmed from countless Zoomers embracing an entrepreneurial spirit, and so this award truly goes to the LegalZoom team.”
The first and only truly global award of its kind, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award is the most prestigious business award program in the country. It celebrates entrepreneurs that have built, lead, and grown successful businesses that influence the economic vibrancy of our local economies and global markets.
As a Greater Los Angeles award winner, Suh is now eligible for consideration for the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum culminating event, the nation's most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
