There are not many places any transmission can leak from. Basically the pan, the output seal, the tail housing gasket, the front pump, the servo covers, and the levers. Except for the front pump, most of them most of the time can be fixed with the transmission still in the rig.

Unless you have a front pump leaking, just fix the leaks one at a time until you have no more leaks. If the front pump is leaking, either rebuild the transmission since you will already have it out, or at least replace all of the external gaskets and seals.
