Social media giant LinkedIn has finally made a formal statement on the UpCounsel saga.
‘Last year, a handful of UpCounsel employees accepted offers to join LinkedIn.
We’re excited these employees have joined the LinkedIn team to help us work toward our mission of connecting the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful.
LinkedIn did not acquire UpCounsel, which remains a corporation separate from LinkedIn,‘ a LinkedIn company spokesperson told Artificial Lawyer via email.
So there you go. Straight from the horse’s mouth, as they say.
At least we now know for sure where some members of the UpCounsel team have gone.
Note the timeline, i.e. UpCounsel announced this week they would close the site on 4 March, but as LinkedIn says here: ‘Last year, a handful of UpCounsel employees accepted offers to join LinkedIn’.
