About HHG-LawInsure


Financial adviser / accountant and client relationships are two of the strongest and most personal professional-to-client relationships in existence. There is, however, potential for clients to assume that their financial adviser or their accountant has every aspect of their personal and business affairs under control, which can spell trouble for both parties in the long term.

With the introduction of the Future of Financial Advice (FOFA) reforms, no matter how this government may amend those reforms, greater obligations and responsibilities have been imposed on financial advisers than ever before. As a result, the potential legal liability for financial advisers has grown considerably.

We have a solution…

Legal Insurance for Financial Advisers & Accountants (HHG-LawInsure™)

We have developed HHG’s Legal Insurance for Financial Advisers & Accountants: an inexpensive, fixed-fee exercise (approximately $660), developed specifically with financial advisers and accountants in mind. We exhaustively review your client’s legal risks, (preferably annually) from a personal, family and business perspective, and notify them and you in writing of our findings and recommendations. This insures you against clients blaming you for unforeseen risk in their affairs. The report stays on your file for 12 months until it is time for the next check-up.

Please note: this exercise places no obligation on the client to engage HHG Legal Group as their legal adviser going forward. We are of course available if your client wishes to engage our services, but that is entirely optional. HHG’s Legal Insurance is specifically designed to protect you and your clients by ensuring all legal risks are discovered proactively. After that, it is up to you and the client as to which law firm is engaged to act on our recommendations.

How Does it Work?

There are three steps to this fixed fee process:

  1. The HHG “Legal Check-up”: Your client (either with or without you present) will have a one hour consultation with a purpose-trained lawyer who will guide them through a detailed check-up process covering personal, family, and business arrangements. No advice is given at this stage; that comes later.
  2. The HHG “Action List”:  We send you and your client a list of recommended actions covering:
    • personal estate & business succession planning;
    • family/de facto law risks;
    • risks currently facing other family members (ie children);
    • intra-family loans;
    • employment issues;
    • business structuring;
    • commercial agreements;
    • philanthropy;
    • tax & superannuation legal issues;
    • financial record keeping;
    • inheritance claims;
    • exposure to legal liability in general;
    • asset protection;
    • IT risks;
    • intellectual property issues;
    • human resources and occupational health & safety business risks;
    • litigation prevention;
    • immigration issues;
    • pension issues; and
    • any other legal risks particular to the client’s business or current personal setup. If rare or unusual risks exist, the detailed questionnaire process will usually find them.
  3. The HHG “Cost Proposal”: If a client wishes to act on our recommendations, we will be only too happy to provide a range of cost options for comparison to other law firms. We can provide time based, fixed fee or retainer fee options.

By carrying out this work for your clients every 12 months, HHG Legal Group is accepting legal liability for protecting your clients against considerable future risk. In other words, the risk moves from you, to us, hence the name HHG-LawInsure™. 

As a strategically-placed, full service, mid-tier law firm providing both personal and business services, we are uniquely qualified to offer this service covering the needs of individuals and their businesses. The dedication and passion that drives HHG Legal Group has resulted in us being named the number 3 law firm in Australia (by Top 50 Law Firms Australia).

 Our Fee Guarantee

If we don’t find any issues that need your client’s attention, we will refund 50% of the fixed fee. If you, or your client, are not happy with our service, we will refund 100% of the fee.  In any event, we guarantee client satisfaction in general and we are the only law firm in Australia to do so.

"Always fast and thorough service. Thank you"


My circumstances at the time I made contact with HHG were dire following my argument being rejected by two no win no fee firms. Following my initial meeting with HHG's employment law team I was left feeling extremely positive by the response and concern shown by HHG in regards to their support of my argument along with their preparedness to pursue an outcome on my behalf.

I accept the fact that nobody really wins in these cases (mental health/ workplace) however the end result was what would be considered most favourable and far in excess of what would have been achieved had I not sought the advice from HHG.

I have no hesitation in recommending HHG to anyone caught up in the messy circumstances I found myself in at the time.

Great advice and five-star commitment to their client!!"


"Thank you for such great assistance with the transaction of Flying Domestics on behalf of Lorna Good. It has been such a pleasure to work with the HHG Legal Group and I look forward to working with you in the future."


"Simon Creek and his team were at all times empathic, professional and confident.  My matter needed to be addressed within a pressing time frame, and their availability at short notice and contact after hours was much appreciated.  It caused me considerable stress, but having such a thoroughly reliable and competent team to call on helped me to feel in control. Although I hope not to need their services again in future, I would be confident in doing so!"


"A good outcome is what we can expect.  A great outcome is a sign of a company which does the very best for their clients. A very big thank you to Daniel Morris for showing empathy towards my small and much needed legal action.

To HHG Legal Group, thank you for a great outcome.  I would recommend your company to anyone seeking legal services."


"Your support this morning was amazingly kind, not to mention your totally reassuring competence, knowledge and wisdom that you used on my behalf.  It was extremely reassuring to have your knowledgeable support, and I particularly appreciated your real and obvious kindness to me. It means so much at a very difficult time. I'm so grateful to you."

Family Law Client

"Janene was very professional and we established a good rapport quickly. The subject of death and wills can be quite confronting to deal with, however, Janene's approach was soft and accommodating."


"A big thank you to HHG for their professional service, continued support, and wide range of legal knowledge. Our clients have given us nothing but kind words regarding HHG Legal Group and so we have no hesitation in referring and recommending Simon Creek and HHG Legal Group for their outstanding services and legal expertise."


"Simon is a friendly and practical legal advisor. I have received great feedback from the clients I have referred to him and his team at HHG Legal Group."


"Over the last few years, I have been impressed by Simon’s legal ability, management skills, entrepreneurial spirit, personal integrity and people skills. He appears to be that rare breed of lawyer – both knowledgeable and commercial."


"Our family has been a client of HHG Legal Group over many years.  Business has included drawing up of wills for three generations and preparing of probate for my father in law. I would have no hesitation in recommending HHG Legal Group to anyone requiring such services."


"You should be congratulated for the manner in which your staff address clients and we found our dealings with your company, once again a very pleasant experience and we would like to truly thank you for your efforts."
