LEAP , the world’s leading cloud software provider for small to mid-sized law firms, announces it has recently opened an office in Pembroke Street Upper in Dublin’s legal district, headed by LEAP Sales Manager for Ireland, John Donigan.
Having been operating in Northern Ireland for the past eighteen months the LEAP  development team has been working hard to bring the software south of the border, helping to streamline the processes of and increase the profits of law firms in Ireland. Having recently introduced a EURO version of LEAP, the tailored product includes a library of over a thousand highly automated Irish legal forms and precedents across the most common areas of law with up-to-date legal rates and charges applied, in accordance with the Irish legal system.
This development has meant solicitors in Ireland can now benefit hugely from the cutting-edge technology that LEAP affords, working with greater efficiency thanks to signature features such as the LEAP Mobile app which offers true mobility. Lawyers can now manage their matters accurately and quickly time record, dictate, draft and edit documents on the move.
LEAP Sales Manager for Ireland, John Donigan comments: “At LEAP we’ve been working incredibly hard to bring our leading solution to the Irish market. Our team of product consultants in Dublin are available for our Irish client base to ensure they receive the best support and service. We are helping lawyers in Ireland work faster, better and smarter using our cloud solution. The LEAP platform has well and truly arrived.”
LEAP client, Mark Hession of Hession Solicitors, Limerick comments about LEAP technology: “I love that LEAP gives me instant and 24/7 access to all my files, so whether I’m in the office, court at home or on holiday it allows me to work when my clients need me. There’s always constant pressure to bring fees down, however I find the cost and time recording function in LEAP has helped me to produce very detailed recordings of my work and I find that helps to ease negotiation of fees.”
Security is paramount to LEAP, the company’s servers are based in Dublin and data is encrypted to AES-25 military grade standard. This ensures data integrity for law firms in Ireland, with no client data leaving the territory. Mark Hession further comments “The clincher for me in choosing LEAP software for my practice was that the data is stored in data centres in Ireland, within the EU, so I didn’t have any headaches regarding the transfer of my clients’ data across borders.”
Peter Baverstock, LEAP UK CEO adds: “Across the UK and Ireland we have recently reached the milestone of 10,000 users of LEAP. We put our success down to our continued investment in developing the product and our commitment to working with new markets, such as Ireland. The positive reaction that our team in Dublin has already received on demonstrating the software is incredibly exciting and testament to all the hard work that our staff have put in to the launch. There is clearly a demand for our software in the market.”
