Activist Legal was born in 2017 out of the frustrations and struggles which Jorge Newbery experienced. As a note investor, Jorge often felt overcharged for legal services. Law firms frequently moved files along slowly and offered little transparency, while connecting with a live attorney could be more difficult than getting a delinquent borrower on the phone. Further, handling matters nationwide required juggling relationships with dozens of different firms. Jorge believed that there had to be a better way – and Activist Legal was born.
