FAQs

Purpose of the Site:

LegalRFQ (Request For Quotes) connects mid-market companies or individuals facing complex legal projects with law firms looking for their business via an easily managed Request for Quotes process. How it works:

  1. Post your project without identifying information.
  2. Law Firms submit their quote.
  3. Review the quotes via your client portal and decide who to interview further, at that time LegalRFQ is no longer part of the conversation. 
For Companies & Individuals:
 
How do I post a Project?

 

  1. You purchase a one year membership, $1000 for companies, $250 for individuals, which then allows you to fill out a Project form stating what you are looking to get done that requires legal assistance. Your membership entitles you to post twelve projects.
  2. Your Project details are not to have any identifying information included. Your Project is posted anonymously. 

Once I post a Project, what happens next?

Law Firms are then able to view your Project details. They decide if they want to submit a quote for your work. When a quote is submitted you are notified via an email that you have received a Quote for a specific Project. You may then log in to the site, go to the Project and either download or view the Quote.
 
Am I guaranteed to receive a certain number of Quotes?

No, you are not guaranteed to receive a specific number of Quotes.

Does LegalRFQ vet or qualify or recommend Law Firms to work with?

No, LegalRFQ does not. Law Firms or Attorneys that are members of the site have signed a terms and conditions document stated they are licensed in your jurisdiction to practice law.  We trust in your ability to critically review each Quote you receive.
 
I have a question about a Quote I have received but do not want to identify myself to the submitter. Is there a way for me to ask them a question anonymously?

Yes. When a Quote comes in you are aware of what Law Firm has submitted the Quote. Via the Project Details Page you can submit a question, anonymously, to that Law Firm. The Law Firm receives an email informing them they have a question about a Quote. It is their decision to answer or not.  Should they answer that information is available via your Control Panel.
 
What if a Law Firm has a question they want to ask me before they submit a Quote? Are they able to do that?
 
When you set up your Project you can toggle on or off the Questions Function for Law Firms. If turned on they can submit a question, anonymously, about the Project. You then receive an email informing you of a question for a particular Project. You are not required to answer the question. However, should you answer the Question and Answer is posted as part of the Project Details. This has the advantage of saving you the time of answering the same question twice. You also have the ability to toggle on or off Questions as long as the Project is posted.
 
How long can I post a Project for?
 
For two, four or six weeks. You can then repost the Project at the end of the expiration date.
 
Is LegalRFQ involved in any way once I start a conversation with a Law Firm?
 
No, LegalRFQ is not involved in any way from that point on. Once you make contact with a Law Firm LegalRFQ is not part of that conversation or any time thereafter. We are strictly a Project listing service.
