UK users LEAP to 10,000

The number of UK users of LEAP’s cloud-based practice management solution has reached 10,000.

More than 1,700 law firms have adopted the software since the first did so in November 2014, while user numbers have doubled since January 2017.

LEAP attributed this growth to the versatility of the software and the efficiency it brings the end-user.

Using LEAP’s practice management solution, fee-earners are able to access a library of up-to-date and automated legal forms and precedents, manage and access their matters from anywhere, from any device, and time record and manage their billing and client accounting.

Peter Baverstock, CEO of LEAP UK, put the solution’s user growth down to the ongoing commitment to research, innovation and development behind the software.

Baverstock said: “Our statistics show lawyers using their mobile device to help manage matters has more than doubled, and on average over 70,000 more legal documents were shared—via LEAP’s integration with the secure document sharing system LawConnect—per week in June, which is nearly four times greater than the same period in 2017. This proves that our focused development is making a difference to those most important to us, our clients.”

LEAP has also seen a rise in current users seeking additional licences, Baverstock said.

Richard Hugo-Hamman, executive chairman of LEAP, added: “When we first came to the UK we were already well established in Australia with an outstanding product. It was important that our entry strategy to the UK market was right. Four and a half years on, I could not have dreamed that today there would be ten thousand lawyers across the UK using LEAP.”

“I am incredibly pleased with the impact that LEAP is having, clearly there is a requirement in the market for the software and we look forward to helping many more small to mid-sized law firms for many years to come.”
