As a legal practitioner, quick and easy access to reliable and up to date resources is critical. In the past, I have used platforms that were limited in scope and only catered for some of those key aspects that a legal practitioner really needs.

After joining JADE, I have not only had great customer service, but have been provided with a platform that is price competitive, easy to use, reliable, up to date and allows me to do so much more!

They also take customer feedback seriously and are always open to hear customer suggestions of how they may improve their system. I look forward to working with Jade for the foreseeable future.

I co-author a legal reference website that relies heavily on Jade for the purposes of case and legislation collation and reporting. We reached out to Jade to see whether it could provide certain search functionality and, within an exceedingly short period of time, Jade implemented various changes in response to our feedback. These changes have dramatically improved our capacity to use Jade in our work and we are tremendously grateful for the responsiveness we received.
