ADA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable legal plans and the IDShield identity theft solution for individuals, families and small businesses, announced today that the company joined the Oklahoma Business Roundtable.
As the State’s primary economic development support organization responsible for providing vital funding to assist business retention, expansion, recruitment and company start-up efforts, the Oklahoma Business Roundtable plays a major role in creating jobs and expanding Oklahoma’s economy. In becoming a member of the organization, LegalShield further cements its role as one of the State’s top business leaders.
“LegalShield was founded 45 years ago here in Ada by Harland Stonecipher, an Oklahoma native. I myself have strong familial roots in the state,” said Jeff Bell, LegalShield CEO. “As one of Oklahoma’s most successful businesses employing 750 people in the state and serving more than 141,000 businesses, LegalShield will actively contribute to the economic conversation and push for stronger, faster, better business development in Oklahoma,” continued Bell.
