No! When vendors receive work request notifications for them to bid on it’s like a customer asking for a quote. Vendors provide a bid/quote that is sent along with their vendor profile for the legal professional to review. Legal professionals review, can respond with questions to the bidding vendors and then select the vendor they want to work with.

4) Do other vendors see my bid?
No. When replying to a posted work request your bid is only visible to the legal professional that posted it.
5) How many cases can I bid on?
Vendor profiles include a Bid Token count. This count is how many cases you can currently bid on. You must purchase more Bid Tokens to reply to new cases if you have none left on your account page.
6) Can I share my account?
Legal Professional Users sharing an account is completely within LitigationBids.com guidelines, and we understand there are several situations that make this necessary. Please keep in mind that all communications will be going back to the registered user’s email.
Vendor Users are prohibited from sharing accounts and will be subject to removal/ban without reimbursement of fees. Should a large group wish to share one “Enterprise Account” and create several sub-accounts to save money, we can create custom accounts with special pricing to accommodate.
