Certified Consultants

Skilled and experienced to help you with all your ongoing training, customisations and new installations.

LEAP is the leading provider of legal practice management software in Australia with thousands of law firms using LEAP throughout the country. Advances in technology have made clients accustomed to easier and quicker installations and training at a lower price. Many firms also prefer to get consulting help from local resources.

To meet these changing circumstances, and to lower the costs of installations for our clients, LEAP has created a network of Certified Consultants. These Certified Consultants run their own consulting businesses installing and configuring LEAP and providing training services to support our clients.

Benefits for you include:

  • Lower costs of installation and training
  • Local availability of consultants as the Network grows
  • Developing a relationship with a consultant for on-going consulting services
  • Peace of mind of knowing that the consultants are subject to annual re-certification to keep their skills up.
