OUR STORY

BidSettle.com was created by two friends to allow better access to justice for all. Here’s their story …

March 2015, Montreal.

“I don’t know about you, but I became a lawyer to help people in real need.”

“With the help of technology, maybe we could offer something for the middle class and small businesses.”

“Certainly! Right now, the legal market doesn’t really have an offer for the less fortunate. However, technology allows us to do so much more for citizens!”

“Businesses have already developed web applications to allow people to make logos, graphics, accounting, taxes, etc. Why don’t we do that in law?”

“If we can prove that helping real people, like you and I, can pay off, then we can change the world.”

BidSettle’s mission was born: to provide access to justice for the middle class through automation and innovation.
