OAKLAND, October 21, 2022 – CEB has expanded its partnership with Rapid Legal to offer better eFiling and additional litigation support services. CEB Essential Forms™ customers will still have the same great experience they rely on with Essential Forms to automate their Judicial Council and County Forms. With the expanded partnership, eFiling becomes a smoother, more comprehensive experience.
With Rapid Legal, CEB Essential Forms customers will have access to all California courts for electronic and physical civil court filings. Customers will have the option to eFile themselves through Self-Service, or to have the Rapid Legal Concierge Team place eFiling orders on their behalf to reduce the risk of error. Overall, CEB Essential Forms customers will experience unrivaled speed and accuracy, unmatched file and serve expertise, exceptional support, industry-leading technology and more with Rapid Legal.
In addition to eFiling, CEB Essential Forms customers will be able to take advantage of Rapid Legal’s full offering of litigation support services, including eFiling, eService, physical court filing, process serving, expert review, and more. Rapid Legal is actively partnering and integrating their portal with various legal technology systems to automate workflows, streamline processes, as well as capture data and analytics. Overall, this partnership will bring greater efficiency and productivity to CEB’s Essential Forms customers.
“As a trusted partner to CEB for over 5 years, we are excited to expand our partnership with them to deliver greater value to their customers,” said Jeff Ellis, EVP of Business Development at Rapid Legal. “This is yet another example that works toward fulfilling our vision to connect the entire legal community for seamless electronic document, information, and payment exchange. As we continue to build our litigation support ecosystem, we look forward to adding more eFiling courts and legal integration partners and court eFiling partners, thereby maximizing productivity, efficiency, and cost control for law firms and legal professionals.”

As of November 1, 2022, CEB Essential Forms customers will no longer be able to eFile directly with CEB, and will need to use Rapid Legal or another vendor for their eFiling needs.
