From my research a Leopard Tree does not suffer from many pests or disease.
The do prefer a hot and dry summer and cool temperatures and wet conditions could cause stress; in turn it could drop leaves.
Your tree should recover with time.

Q. Leopard tree

My Leopard tree is looking terrible. It has a bit of greenery on it but isn’t lush and flowering like everyone else’s. it looks very poorly indeed. Lots of branches are empty of any foliage at all and just looks like dead sticks. This is the first time I have seen it like this. After all the rain we’ve had it should look beautiful. I planted it probably maybe about fifteen years ago so it’s a young one. Will it help if I get it cut back?
I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

Yes, I do believe that it would benefit from a pruning. This can help rejuvenate the tree. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/leopard-tree/leopard-tree-care.htm
