Rocket Lawyer announces partnership with Golden State Warriors
Legal tech company Rocket Lawyer said Thursday it has become an official legal services partner with NBA team the Golden State Warriors.
Under the partnership, Golden State Warriors employees will now have access to Rocket Lawyer services as a benefit of employment, including assistance with business documents, estate planning, legal document review and other legal benefits.
Rocket Lawyer founder and CEO Charley Moore says the company will also be supporting Generation Thrive, a partnership between the Warriors Community Foundation and health care company Kaiser Permanente.
In a show of that support, Moore says every time that a Warriors player blocks a shot, Rocket Lawyer will donate $500 to the organization.
Moore says Rocket Lawyer will provide group services to Warriors employees, or the “team behind the team,” who helped the Warriors win four championships in the past 10 years.
“Legal is expensive, and lawyers cost a lot of money. And so our mission is to get the everyday champions in the world the same kind of legal help and access to justice that rich people in big companies have,” Moore says.

Generation Thrive supports nonprofits and educators serving young people. According to its website, it offers wellness sessions, professional development training and educational programming that focuses on racial equity and leadership development.
Moore says the commitment to Generation Thrive was the “cornerstone” of the partnership.
“[Warriors] coach Steve Kerr and the players themselves have been outspoken throughout all the social justice crises that have come up over the last few years through the pandemic,” Moore says. “And Rocket Lawyer as a social justice champion found shared values with the Warriors. That’s where it started and why we’re so excited.”
Warriors executive vice president Mike Kitts called the new partnership a “game-changing relationship for our franchise and our community members” and said Rocket Lawyer’s blocked-shot pledge will allow the Warriors to “continue to support educators and students in the region.”
“The ability to offer group legal benefits to our Warriors Community Foundation grantees further helps us offer resources to these nonprofits who are continuing to work towards educational equity in the Bay Area,” Kitts added in an email.
