Available when you need it - anytime, anywhere

With APP4LEGAL you are guaranteed 99.9% availability, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We make this possible by having redundant facilities and servers in place at all times. This ensures that if one location or server somehow becomes unavailable, your APP4LEGAL service experience will be minimally affected or, most often, not at all.

Furthermore, we constantly expand our server facilities in order to keep up with customer growth, which makes it possible for our system to always be ready to handle the increasing number of users.
