The 5 Levels of Partnership

Choose a level of partnership suitable to your skills and expertise.

Independent Practice Management Advisor (IPMA)

Provides Implementation and Training to LEAP Clients. Exclusive to LEAP, PCLaw and Time Matters.

This partnership is best suited to companies, partnerships, or individuals adept at building long-term client relationships, and who are familiar with technology and how lawyers and their support staff work. As exclusive consulting Partners, IPMAs will be experts in every aspect of LEAP. Further, an understanding of legal accounting and local IOLA/IOLTA rules is required, along with QuickBooks Online Certification. IPMAs will enjoy priority access to LEAP HelpDesk to assist with troubleshooting, and will also enjoy access to the LEAP Partner Network Portal.

Certified Independent Consultant (CIC)

Provides Implementation and Training to LEAP Clients. Not exclusive to LEAP.

This partnership is best suited to companies, partnerships, or individuals adept at building long-term client relationships, and who are familiar with technology and how lawyers and their support staff work. As non-exclusive Partners, CICs will enjoy the flexibility to partner with LEAP while also maintaining any pre-existing relationships with other software providers. CICs will be experts in every aspect of LEAP. An understanding of legal accounting and local IOLA/IOLTA rules is required, and QuickBooks Online Certification is also a highly sought after qualification. CICs will enjoy priority access to LEAP HelpDesk to assist with troubleshooting and will also enjoy access to the LEAP Partner Network Portal.

LEAP Franchise Owner (LFO)

Exclusively promotes and sells LEAP.

As the highest level of partnership, becoming a franchise owner provides an opportunity to own and manage a business. LFOs will enjoy geographic exclusivity as a LEAP branch within an agreed territory. This Program Level is best suited to a company or partnership able to conduct their own marketing, sales and client support. LFOs may employ their own Certified Consultants, or may call upon CICs and/or IPMAs to deliver Consulting Services to Clients. Franchises may eventually be sold for profit subject to agreement by LEAP.

LEAP Certified Bookkeeper (LCB)

Provides as-needed Legal Accounting and Bookkeeping services to LEAP Clients.

LEAP Certified Bookkeepers will have the opportunity to work with multiple LEAP Clients. LEAP Certified Bookkeepers must be intimately familiar with law firm time and billing processes, as well as IOLA/IOLTA, retainer management, law firm accounting, and payroll. Because LEAP integrates with QuickBooks Online, LCBs are required to be independently QuickBooks Online certified. LCBs will enjoy priority access to LEAP HelpDesk to assist with troubleshooting, and will also enjoy access to the LEAP Partner Network Portal.

Certified IT Partner (CIT)

Provides as-needed IT assistance for LEAP Clients to meet infrastructure needs and LEAP System Requirements.

A LEAP Certified IT Partner should be an IT Professional, Partnership, or Company with a clear understanding of how law firms work and utilize technology. CITs will be available to Clients to assist with tasks including hardware upgrades, software upgrades, email configuration and data migrations on an as-needed basis. CITs will enjoy priority access to LEAP HelpDesk to assist with troubleshooting, and will also enjoy access to the LEAP Partner Network Portal.

The Partner Portal

Through the LEAP Partner Portal, Partners can communicate with LEAP and with each other, access useful documents and training resources, and view Installation Records, enter Notes, and upload Training Checklists for LEAP Clients assigned to the Partner.

Commitment to Our Partners

“LEAP succeeds because it does things differently. We know that meeting Clients face to face - in person and at their offices - is the best way to establish lasting relationships. Our global business model has been built around this philosophy.
