  • Online accounts for attorneys
  • Electronic filing of applications and other litigation documents
  • Electronic submission of settlement contracts
  • Electronic delivery of notices and decisions
  • Secure, online access to case information and documents

Some key benefits of CompFile include reduced usage of paper, real-time access to court filings and documents, immediate verification of successful filing, and electronic service of documents on counsel.
