FindLaw Teams up with OnVia

Law firms, small businesses submit RFQs for nonlegal business needs on law exchange

Mountain View, CA -- December 4, 2000 -- BUSINESS WIRE -- FindLaw, which offers online legal information and services, has partnered with OnVia to offer FindLaw Small Business Marketplace. Legal professionals, businesspersons and others can buy nonlegal business products and services at the FindLaw Web site.

"Whether they are lawyers or nonlawyers, people seeking legal information and services on the Internet often have business needs," says FindLaw Cofounder Stacy Stern. "Now, at FindLaw, they can find the best nonlegal business deals even as they conduct legal research or read the latest legal news headlines."

The majority of attorneys work in firms with fewer than 10 attorneys. At FindLaw's Small Business Marketplace, they can quickly and easily gain direct access to thousands of vendors and obtain free price quotes for services in a wide range of business categories, including accounting, insurance, telecommunications and travel. FindLaw plans to launch another service early next year in which visitors to its site can obtain free price quotes on legal services and legal professionals can generate leads for their services.
