Why switch from SOS to LEAP?

Since establishment, SOS Legal has catered to the needs of an IT-dependent legal profession, evolving to serve the needs of enterprise law firms (150+ staff) who employ in-house IT teams, developers and third-party consultants to maintain and enhance their SOS software.

Moving forward, SOS will exclusively concentrate on developing new features and functionality for these enterprise law firms, given their capacity to manage the complex customisations the platform offers, to help future proof their practice.

For small to mid-sized law firms, SOS will focus development on ensuring a stable and reliable software solution. However, for firms of this is size wanting ongoing innovation we recommend LEAP.
