We’re delighted to announce that RfM can now provide a range of personal and business legal services to our clients. As your trusted accounting advisors, we hope you will feel confident to come to us when you next need legal assistance.
Over the years, many of our clients have come to us for advice on a range of legal matters, both personal and business related. Whilst we did not have the expertise ‘in-house’ to help them directly, we have always aimed to refer them to a specialist who could. However, we became somewhat frustrated that we could not do more to help.
As such, we have looked closely at how we could improve the way we respond to requests for legal help and are delighted to be announcing the launch of RfM Legal Services.
Members of the Legal Services Guild
To be able to provide our new range of legal services – including wills and trust planning, probate, conveyancing and more – we have become accredited members of the Legal Services Guild (LSG) and welcomed a qualified Barrister Intermediary to the RfM team.
Should you choose to use our legal services, Sharon Rigden, our Barrister Intermediary, will be your first point of contact and the vital link between you and your legal team.
With you at every step
Sharon is qualified to assist you directly with a range of personal and business legal matters. As a first step, Sharon will usually meet with you to get to know you and to gather the facts relating to your legal matter. She will then make recommendations and prepare the necessary documentation with the support of the barristers at the Legal Services Guild. If the advice you need is not covered by the services we currently offer directly, Sharon can refer you for expert legal assistance in virtually every area of law.
Whether we manage your case in-house or refer you to a specialist, Sharon will be there to support and assist you every step of the way.
Meet Sharon here.
Our range of legal services
Wills and Trust Planning
Put plans in place to ensure your loved ones receive the inheritance you want to give them when you are gone.
+ Powers of Attorney
Nominate someone you trust to make important decisions on your behalf and look after your affairs in the event that you are no longer able to.
The task of administering someone’s estate after their death can be a challenge. We’ll guide you through the process.

+ Buying and selling businesses
A professionally drafted Sale or Purchase Agreement will ensure that all parties have a clear and consistent understanding of what to expect from the transaction.
It’s true what they say: moving home is one of life’s more stressful experiences. We’ll make sure your house sale or purchase goes through as swiftly and smoothly as possible.
+ Debt Recovery
We’ll help you to get the money you are owed without damaging important client relationships. We advise you to involve us as early as possible to reduce the need for legal proceedings.
Divorce, dissolution and pre-nuptial agreements
Whether the relationship has come to an end or you are preparing to make things more formal, our personal approach will help ensure the best outcomes for everyone involved.
