LEAP celebrates 2000 UK law firms


The appetite that law firms in the UK have to embrace the cloud and leverage technology to improve their firms is best demonstrated by the fact that more than 2000 law firms in the UK and Ireland have now made the switch to LEAP. First launched in January 2015, this is the fastest uptake of new technology in UK legal software history.

John Espley, CEO of LEAP UK, says “We are incredibly proud to have reached this milestone. The speed at which firms are adopting our software is very encouraging.”

“The law firms that we visit are showing a clear desire to streamline their processes and they appreciate the important role that technology can play in helping them to achieve this. What is promising is that it shows that LEAP’s development and the direction and investment that we are putting into enhancing the product is worthwhile.”

The choice of advanced productivity tools available within LEAP heavily contributes to the fast uptake of the software, including the LEAP App available on tablets and smartphones which provides the capability to work anywhere at any time.
