LEAP, the world’s most powerful cloud-based productivity solution for law firms, and LawToolBox, an award-winning court rule and deadline management system, today announced a new integration to help attorneys manage dates and deadlines more effectively. The integration enables litigators to calculate and automate deadlines for rule-based matters across all commonly practiced areas of law in LEAP Legal Practice Productivity Solution.
“Every year, litigators calculate, create, and track hundreds to thousands of critical court deadlines. Unfortunately, this manual process is not only time-consuming but also extremely risky,” said Peter Baverstock, CEO of LEAP US. “Missing dates and deadlines can have many negative implications ranging from damaged client relationships, reputational risk, and, in some cases, even malpractice suits. The implications can be far-reaching and potentially expensive. However, through the power of cloud technology and this new partnership, we’re thrilled to offer busy law practices a better, more efficient solution.”
Available through the LEAP Marketplace, the application automatically calculates court dates and legal deadlines, which then instantly sync to the attorney’s Outlook calendar. The technology, powered by Microsoft 365, allows LEAP users the ability to change, remove, or add deadlines while reflecting any update across the users’ cloud-connected devices. Additionally, attorneys receive automatic updates when court rules change. All related-matter deadlines are re-calculated and synced to Outlook, LEAP Critical Dates, and the LawToolBox application to reflect the rule changes.
“In the legal profession, dates and deadlines are everything. Missing a key deadline is an attorney’s worst nightmare. That’s why LawToolBox has built a better way to automate and manage this crucial piece of the legal process,” said Jack Grow, CEO of LawToolBox. “Through our partnership with LEAP, we’ve developed a more seamless and easier way for law firms to manage every critical court date and important deadline. This, in turn, helps to free them up to do what they do best – seek justice for their clients.”
