Glen Secor joined Nolo as a Legal Editor in 2022, focusing on small business, small business formation, and nonprofits.

Education and teaching. Glen has a B.A. in Psychology from Stonehill College, an M.S. in Accounting from Southern New Hampshire University, a J.D. from Suffolk University Law School, and an LL.M from Harvard Law School. He has taught Copyright Law at University of New Hampshire School of Law and Business Law and accounting courses at Southern New Hampshire University and Franklin Pierce University.

Legal and business career. Glen began his career in his family’s business, a library bookselling company, where he was CFO, and then CFO & Attorney after completing law school. After a long stint in the family business, he hung his shingle for the first time, as a solo practitioner, in Concord, NH. Through this practice, he helped his small business and nonprofit clients in a wide range of transactions, including formations and all manner of contracts. He transitioned back to in-house work in 2005 with a nonprofit education research company, managing their intellectual property and contracts. In 2018, he hung his shingle for a second time, this time in Concord, MA, with a very similar focus on small business and nonprofit clients.

Why Nolo? As an attorney for small businesses and nonprofits, Glen understood that his clients generally found the law to be complicated and intimidating. One of his primary goals in representing these companies was to demystify the law so that his clients could make informed legal and business decisions. Nolo takes this approach one step further by empowering its customers with the information and services they need to actually handle their own legal tasks and transactions.
