Premium and Light Editions

Click here to Compare Editions

Premium Edition is best suited to a firm or organization that prepares complex or more frequent TOAs, or requires network administration. Only BA Premium provides the comprehensive interface to allow you to easily make permanent editing changes directly to the TOA during the review process. Premium pricing includes a built-in discount for medium and larger organizations.

Best Authority Light is often the best choice for small firms or organizations with infrequent, short or simple Table of Authorities needs. Light Edition has a subset of the features in Premium. It does not include the Advanced Feature Set for TOA editing or the Network Administration Features. It costs less and requires less training.
