private client base. IM has been using a customised version of the DPL Professional
desktop Will system since 2007 and is now one of the largest providers of Wills in
England and Wales.

Richard Clark, Operations Director, IM, said: “The DPL Professional Will system has

legal services is increasing and it is technology such as ours, and also the experience
