Legal Advice


informed  Lawyers

This is a separate business from the education, risk management and insurance advice offered by informed by Planned Cover. informed Lawyers Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of IBL Ltd, is authorised to provide legal services. Neither IBL nor its trading divisions (Planned Cover, informed by Planned Cover and Focus Underwriting) are authorised to provide legal services, even where staff possess legal qualifications.
