Multi-Plaintiff Litigation

Compex introduced its Multi-Plaintiff Litigation (MPL) department in 1984 which offers paralegal support to manage multi-plaintiff class-action cases. Compex provides a consistent MPL product by adhering to a clearly defined "Statement of Work" that carefully allocates the responsibilities of Compex in the context of our clients' objectives. We have continuously refined our process in the last 25 years.

  • We approached Compex on a time-sensitive class action drug litigation matter with strict deadlines imposed by the courts. With very little notice, they went from handling about 150 orders per month to over 1,500 per month on these cases and responded better than expected. They are truly a valuable partner and all situations are handled in a professional, fair and equitable manner.

  • When we hired Compex to create and process all of the subpoenas for our multi-team litigation we understood that they had the technical capacity to make our job more efficient. What we didn't realize was how quickly they would become an integral team member, due in large part to the professionalism and flexibility of the Compex staff. They picked up the ball and kept carrying it down the field
