Software Designed for Law Firms
LEAP — a name that may be new to you — is the market leader and No. 1 software choice for law firms throughout Australia and the United Kingdom.
Having served firms abroad for more than 25 years, LEAP is now making significant inroads in the U.S. with its impressive feature-rich program.
What sets LEAP apart in a class of its own? LEAP recognizes that every court system in the land is different — just as every law firm has its unique needs and ways of doing business. This is where LEAP Legal Software truly exceeds — LEAP builds software around each law firm’s needs, specific to both their area of practice and geographic location.
Recognizing that form libraries, judicial documents, letters, agreements, and contracts all have nuances that differ county by county, and state by state, LEAP has combined the power of feature-rich cloud-based practice management with localized libraries — this makes the firm’s work more efficient. When a firm logs-in to LEAP, it does not need to create custom fields within the application — they’re already there! LEAP’s implementation team is willing to put in the work to make that happen.
But that is not all — LEAP’s innovation continues to amaze with a rich and relevant feature set that is truly outstanding!
LEAP Legal Software Begins with Matters
The LEAP Dashboard is a list of all Matters. Search by Name, Property Address, Description, or any other practice area-specific field. Choose the Matter that interests you, then dive right in.
Inside the Matter screen, you have information specific to case type: for example, a Real Estate lawyer’s view might include Property, Housing, Mortgage and Realtor related information, while a Family Law attorney might see Marital Status, Spouse, Children, and other parties such as Mediator or Guardian. All of these data fields exist within the LEAP software and, when populated in the Matter, will automatically populate the hundreds of forms and templates available within LEAP.
SMS Text Messaging from Within the Matter
In this day and age, we all recognize that there is an undeniable need to communicate with clients through text messaging — if your firm is not offering clients this technology, another law firm will.
LEAP Legal Software provides text messaging capabilities from right inside the Matter screen! All messages sent and received are recorded and logged into the system. No more “lost in translation” mistakes because an Associate is stuck in court and can’t relay a text conversation back to the office.
Seamless Integration with Microsoft Office and Office 365
Whether you are using Office 365 in the cloud or still loving your desktop version of Microsoft Office, LEAP’s integration feels like home. With the most advanced Microsoft Word Toolbar Add-In we have seen, actions built into Word create a seamless and intuitive integration without having to leave the application. And, LEAP integrates beautifully with Microsoft Teams for improved internal communications in the most popular collaboration platform available:
- Timestamp a document and Close;
- Rename and Save back to the Matter file;
- Update documents automatically (no more versioning!);
- Add an Enclosure at the bottom;
- Convert a document into a fax, email or letter!
Document Assembly in Microsoft Word and Outlook
LEAP has more than two decades of document assembly experience — rest assured that generating a Letter, Court Form, or other type of document – even emails – is absolutely seamless! A pre-built library of Court Forms comes standard with LEAP.
For proprietary documents your law firm needs, LEAP will convert these to templates at no extra cost during the implementation process. And once you are up-and-running with the application, creating a new Template Letter or Document takes minutes. With a built-in document assembly tool inside Microsoft Word (in user-friendly language you will appreciate!), simply open the document you wish to convert into a Template and add the Matter fields from an intelligent selection in the right-hand sidebar.
Automatically Email and Attach Files from the Matter or Word Toolbar
LEAP Legal Software is all about helping you and your firm become more efficient. Another timesaver in LEAP is the ability to send emails or attachments directly from the Matter or any open Microsoft Word document. Wherever you are, click the email icon, and a new Outlook email will open — already addressed to the related Contact, or with a Word or PDF version of the file you select.
No more wasted time on converting documents to PDFs or wasted clicks — windows open on your screen in one fluid, intelligent workflow!
Law Connect — The Client Portal Meets Advanced File Storage
Ready to take file sharing with your clients to the next level? Show them you take privacy and security seriously by utilizing Law Connect. Law Connect will revolutionize how you share documents with your clients.
For fans of document library tools such as Box, Dropbox, and others, prepare to be impressed: Law Connect is a clear differentiator as one of the only systems to replace and enhance the functionality available with standard client portal tools. Law Connect allows you to work with clients in a secure space, sharing documents, commenting on PDFs, and electronically signing agreements — all without the need to create metadata.
With Law Connect, you’ll be able to set time-boxed viewing limits on documents, then revoke access after projects are complete. Or import entire folders, preview items, compare, rename, and see a history of all changes.
Law Connect even allows a client to use their Law Connect space to work with more than one firm at a time — perfect for larger clients that work with a Business Law firm, a Real Estate Attorney, and an Estate Planner for example.
Desktop, Mobile, iPhone and Web Applications
Microsoft Office “Power Users” may prefer the desktop version of LEAP running securely in the cloud, while attorneys on the go will love the web-based and mobile apps. Each is rich in features with unique and important capabilities — such as the ability to dictate notes to Siri and have them recorded back to the file.
Place calls from the LEAP mobile app, and the system will also automatically time record your activity capturing billable hours with no additional effort!
