Nick Cronin, an attorney who works in-house at a Wisconsin corporation, founded Law Bidding early this year.
He wrote me and explained that “LawBidding.com lets businesses (and individuals) post legal issues and then allows attorneys who have registered with the site to search cases and place bids on the work. The website is totally free for all users.”
Attorneys can offer to help on a flat, hourly or contingent basis. When I reviewed the site, it had mostly legal issues for individuals (DUIs, divorce, custody, personal injury), but the capability has potential for in-house counsel. It is like E-Lance for lawyers.
