NowInfinity, View Legal terminate partnership
SMSF document provider NowInfinity and Queensland-based law firm View Legal have terminated their strategic partnership after almost three years.
In a recent LinkedIn post, View Legal director Matthew Burgess confirmed that the two firms had “agreed to terminate the merged digital business unit and strategic legal services arrangements jointly announced in 2017”.
“No further comments will be made by either party in relation to the decision,” Mr Burgess said.
The partnership and merger was announced in April 2017 with the intention of providing NowInfinity customers in the accounting, SMSF, financial advice and legal space with “a whole new level of solutions”, according to NowInfinity chief executive Amreeta Abbott.
“View Legal’s team of lawyers, their processes and their non-traditional approach will also make legal advice more accessible to NowInfinity members and inspire them with the confidence to offer cradle-to-grave advice,” Ms Abbott said at the time.
Mr Burgess was also said to be optimistic about the partnership at the time, given the firms’ shared values and objectives.
The two firms had worked particularly closely on simplifying the estate planning process, with the partnership enabling View Legal to launch a digital estate planning solution through financial planning software provider myprosperity in 2018.
