Legal Agreement Preparation

Please note we are not lawyers. Therefore you must seek a legal opinion before acting on any templates issued. This is a condition of our licence to you.

The agreements have produced with an independent law firm Hamilton Bailey Legal or Maddox where applicable. They are used to facilitate a discussion on key areas that affect your practice.

We can accept and provide commercial advice on how best to maximise the value of any arrangement. To keep legal costs down, we will then directly instruct your legal adviser, for example, Peripheral Blue Legal (they are familiar with these documents). These templates are under a license for you to customise with a licensed lawyer.


The customised agreement template can be reused without the additional cost of a lawyer unless there are wording changes, should you choose to order our license template agreements. Only a template fee will apply for each new reused customised template agreement that you need.

For example, to order a new service agreement, simply complete this service agreement order form. We will advise whether you need to seek further legal advice or not.

Who do you contact about legal questions?

If you have any legal questions in relation to the practice agreements Template documents, then you can use the legal helpline that the law firm Peripheral Blue and Maddox Lawyers (via Cleardocs) provides to Health and Life. Peripheral Blue and Maddox are our primary independent lawyers we use. They sign-off on master documents and the question interface before we put the documents on our site.

The first thing to do is ring us. We will arrange for you to speak with the relevant lawyer firm.

If you require other legal advice in relation to your particular circumstances, then this will be charged for.

Our number is 1800 077 222.
