Leadership

We focus on just one thing, the needs of small law firms.

Richard Hugo-Hamman

Executive Chairman

"We have found that there are four great challenges facing lawyers in small law firms; these are the ability to:

  • Consistently deliver quality legal advice and services;
  • Enjoy legal practice more with less stress;
  • Generate sufficient working capital to grow the firm;
  • Make a profitable business that will have value in the future.

Most lawyers in small law firms want to help people (people like you and me) when in need and it is difficult to balance clients’ needs with the demands of running a small business. The business side of things always suffers. LEAP redresses this imbalance.

For more than 20 years we have constantly researched the needs of lawyers in small firms and designed great solutions to help them. We have found that the challenges are very similar in all countries. The human needs of clients are the same after all.

We continue to invest in a cycle of continuous innovation designing and developing solutions that take advantage of the latest technologies to bring costs down, and which are remarkably practical and natural to use for anyone familiar with the operations of small law firms.

No matter what your involvement in small law firms is, I invite you to make contact with me directly, I will always be happy to take your call or exchange correspondence."
