The Financial Statement within LEAP

Document Automation

The Financial Statement within LEAP has been a showstopper for law firms for decades. In addition to your matter information merging into the document, there are smart tools to assist further. Firstly, the amounts will calculate for you, even if you only have estimates, and LEAP will add the ‘E’ icon wherever applicable. If you need more rows for areas such as Motor Vehicles, this can be added easily. Lastly, you can re-calculate whenever you need to.

Online Guidance

The matter plan layout makes the typical progression of a matter instantly understandable. Equip your staff with the best tools available for them to look after their clients whilst keeping up to date with any legislative changes and have instant access to practical guidance. Online learning has become a norm and this would be the format that young lawyers and paralegals are more accustomed to. This will give you the peace of mind to ensure quality work if you are unable to supervise them.

Time Recording

Time Recording

The LEAP timesheet, background time recording and mobile app allow you to record time easily wherever you are. You have the flexibility to record billable and non-billable time to ensure you can track the time accurately, particularly if you are assessing your fixed fees. The layout of the timesheet and the ability to see who else has been working on the matter makes collaborative work safer.

Compiling Briefs

Finalising a brief is stressful and there is no room for errors. Finding paralegals who know how to create bundles that comply with the requirements of a particular court is challenging. With so many lawyers working from home, it is also much harder to delegate this job and it’s generally not a task anyone likes to do. BundlePro makes it easy, whatever your role is, as court requirements have been built into the system for all Australia courts. This means you can create bundles with a few clicks that are fully text searchable and properly paginated (including Bates numbering) and indexed.

E-Filing and Synchronisation

E-Filing and Synchronisation

You can easily file documents to the Commonwealth Court Portal directly from your LEAP matter. The integration works both ways ensuring any documents filed by the other side or issued by the court are also synced back into your matter.
