CDG Law (who have been servicing the Hunter since 1978) has joined forces with Rethink Financial Group (established in 1979, formally known as Newcastle Financial Planning) to create a full service legal firm, Rethink Law.
Rethink Law’s offerings extend far beyond the traditional parameters of your average legal firm with the support of a financial planning team, an accounting team, a mortgage broker and a personal development coach all within Rethink Financial Group.
With access to this unique suite of professional services, the Rethink Law team are able to enhance their client’s experience in the areas they love and specialise in – property and conveyancing, family law and commercial and business law.
Ian Gray, Principal at Rethink Law says that from a property and conveyancing perspective, it’s fantastic that they can now not only support their clients with their property transaction, but also offer a wide range of integrated services.
“Investors have the option to have a personalised tax strategy put in place for their investment property or for our owner occupied clients ensure they’re able to service their mortgage ongoing and for sale clients we can present them an investment review to make sure the funds from the sale of their property are being maximised to best benefit their needs,” Ian said.
“While family law cases tend to be sad in nature, it is incredibly humbling to know you’ve supported your client through what is undoubtedly the most difficult and emotional times they will experience in their life. This side of the business definitely builds strong relationships as you work through the legalities of these matters and the fact that we can offer support to our clients even further through Rethink Coaching and financial support through Rethink Financial Planning is an added comfort.”
Rethink Coaching is headed up by Richard Ford, who himself comes from a legal background. Before becoming a personal coach Richard was a solicitor for 15 years and at one stage was the CEO of the Central Coast’s largest law firm. Richard says his legal background gives him a deep understanding of the complexities associated with family matters, which enables him to really support clients personally.
Business and commercial clients will benefit from being able to pick and choose between a full suite of complementing services including accounting, virtual CFO, bookkeeping, financial planning, investment advice, business coaching, personal coaching and lending advice.
