Prestigious Annual Awards Program Recognizes Innovative Companies, Products, and Services Supporting the Legal Field
JERSEY CITY, NJ, November 16, 2022 – LEAP, the world’s most powerful cloud-based legal practice productivity solution for law firms, announced today that it had been selected as “Overall Practice Management Solution of the Year” in the third annual LegalTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by LegalTech Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout legal technology companies, products, and services around the globe.
“We are so pleased to be recognized as the Best Overall Practice Management Solution of the Year by LegalTech Breakthrough,” said Peter Baverstock, CEO of LEAP US. “Attorneys and their staff members should be focused on providing high-quality legal services to their clients, not manual tasks that eat away hours of their day. We remain firmly committed to providing world-class, innovative legal software that drives efficiency and profitability so that lawyers can focus on what they do best: practicing law. We couldn’t be happier to be recognized for our product and team’s strides in this commitment to support the legal industry.”
The LEAP legal practice productivity solution is the only comprehensive, cloud-based solution that enables law firms to improve productivity and profitability by managing their entire practice on the world’s most secure cloud platform, Amazon Web Services.
Users have access to features that solve for practice management, document management and assembly, legal publishing, and legal accounting, all from a single solution that can be accessed anywhere, at any time. This accessibility gives attorneys the flexibility they need to track billable time, collaborate on documents, manage deadlines, create and send invoices, and collect payments in an efficient and modern manner.
Additionally, LEAP users can import existing templates or access a library of over 11,000 legal forms and 2,500 pre-built matter types that automatically connect to electronic matters in real time. The LEAP Content team consists of legal experts who regularly update these forms and matter types across all common areas of law and jurisdictions to ensure that legal professionals always have access to the most recent versions of forms. These forms are then automated with LEAP for Word and the LEAP Clause Library, which auto-populate and complete documents and legal forms. Once forms are complete, LawConnect’s integration with LEAP provides attorneys and their clients with an ABA-compliant portal to securely share, review, comment, and e-sign documents.
Lastly, LEAP simplifies complex transactions with built-in office and trust accounting functionality. Law firm staff can instantly generate invoices, manage retainers and trust accounts, and directly capture disbursements to simplify compliance with IOLTA, IOLA, and state bar rules. The solution provides built-in time recording tools, a legal calculator, and legal billing codes. Xero and QuickBooks Online integrate with LEAP to ensure that all transactions are securely recorded when invoices are created, edited, and sent.
In 2021, the company was recognized as the “Overall Case Management Platform of the Year” by LegalTech Breakthrough.
“Instead of spending time on manual tasks, legal professionals need to focus on revenue-driving tasks while efficiently serving the most vulnerable in their communities. An effective practice management software can improve law firm productivity, profitability, and client satisfaction. However, there is no shortage of options when it comes to LEAP. Older products tend to be limiting premise-based solutions that don’t always serve the modern firm,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of LegalTech Breakthrough Awards. “LEAP is a world-class legal practice productivity solution providing firms with everything needed to operate at peak performance regardless of the regions and areas of law they practice. The cloud-based solution simplifies everyday tasks and improves law firm operations so that attorneys can provide high-quality client experiences. Congratulations again this year – this time for ‘Overall Practice Management Solution of the Year!’”
