The FSC, which stands against all 2257 regulations, FSC Executive Director Diane Duke told XBIZ, is using a confidential, sealed bid process to receive proposals from interested attorneys and law firms.
“The selection committee will be composed of a combination of FSC Board members and other industry leaders,” Duke said, “and they will be pledged to the confidentiality which is required of a sealed bid process such as this one.”
Duke adds that all interested attorneys and law firms are encouraged to send proposals and letters of intent.
“The goal of this RFP is to retain the best team of attorneys for the litigation while at the same time ensuring fiscal responsibility,” Duke said. “The best-qualified proposals will be chosen, but we’re looking for any attorneys who have the skills to help us with this. The number of attorneys we select depends on who applies and what they bring to the table.”
Letters of intent are expected to arrive in January, and the selection process will run through February.
