Exeter law firm invests in local software

27 November 2006

Fast-growing Exeter law practice Michelmores has invested in award winning tax software developed by local firm Digita.

Digita has been recognised nationally as a leader in developing specialist tax and accounting software supplying over 3,000 firms in the accountancy sector, from sole practitioners right up to several of the Top 20.

Now, having spent more than two man years developing new trust tax software in response to the growing complexity of the regulations that govern trust administrators and practitioners, Digita has turned its attention to the legal sector.

Managing Director Jerry Rihll said:

"Michelmores has been our legal adviser since we founded Digita 20 years ago, so it was natural for us to work together in the development of Trust Tax software for law firms."

"We were delighted when Michelmores decided to adopt our tax software, particularly as they now have one of the biggest private client practices in the region and are acknowledged experts in advising on trusts and estate administration."

Michelmores’ eight-partner wills, trusts and probate team is headed by Senior Partner Will Michelmore, a former Chairman of the West of England branch of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

The team was boosted early this year by the arrival of Foot Anstey’s former Senior Partner and head of private client Adrian Miller accompanied by his supporting team and loyal client following. He is a specialist in trust, estate and attorneyship matters and advises clients regionally and overseas and was also a previous Chairman of STEP.

Will Michelmore added:

"It is essential that the software we use enables us to maximise the quality of the service we provide to our clients and ensures that the firm complies with all statutory requirements. We were impressed with Digita’s software and especially pleased that we were able to procure an effective solution so close to home."
