Most legal projects do not start as a blank slate. Along with deal-specific terms and provisions, they also very often involve universal "core information" as required in many other projects. Gathering this core information often means re-inventing the wheel trying to locate the necessary resources to initiate and perform each project. You may need a required form or a link to a web site or steps to a particular procedure.
A time-saving solution is having a set of procedural tools, documents, forms, links to pertinent web sites and other information compiled and easily-accessible for repeat use an essential toolbox, let's say that provides quick and easy access to industry standard tools and information and safeguards against re invention of the wheel, wasted time and in the case of in-house counsel, unnecessary calls to outside counsel.
DELUGE OF ONLINE INFORMATION; NO ORGANIZATION
To actualize the benefits of burgeoning online resources, the compilation, organization, and delivery of the information must be efficient. Many legal professionals find: (i) searching the Internet more often than not, renders a deluge of information requiring time-consuming navigation; (ii) favorite folders can become uncontrollable; (iii) searching for the right internal information (i.e. the right form, provision or sample document) on document management systems can be equally frustrating and time-consuming; (iv) locating just the right information (i.e. an informative e-mail) when it's needed can be very challenging, and wonder how to keep current with technological developments as the e-government movement progresses.

To dramatically increase efficiency by adding LeapLaw to the resources available in your practice.
"Adding LeapLaw to our in-house resources means that we don't have to search for information in so many places. With LeapLaw, we have access to certain law-firm quality resources at our fingertips. We then don't have to call our outside

Sometimes, rather than calling outside counsel, in-house lawyers and paralegals just need a little guidance or access to reliable procedural information. LeapLaw offers in-house legal cost-effective procedural information that can save money on outside counsel fees, increase efficiency and help to get the job done with less staff.
In an excerpt from "Show Me the Money", Kingsley Martin explains this day-to-day reality, "Unfortunately, in many cases, attorneys [and paralegals] cannot quickly locate useful material and must accordingly 'reinvent the wheel,' work from inadequate precedent or occupy the non-billable time of others through broadcast e-mail messages requesting sample forms."
THE COST OF INEFFICIENCY
Inefficiency resulting from disorganized resources can be significant. An in-house legal department with a few lawyers and a paralegal, losing an average of 2 billable hours per week searching for information can cost $60,000.
By simply organizing and sharing resources and information in a format and location easily accessible the cost of delivering legal services can be easily and cost-effectively reduced.
