Rhys Walters - Director / Lawyer 

I am the main lawyer at Cogent Law.

I have a background in medico-legal matters and employment law. 

Before forming Cogent Law Limited, I was a director of Health Professional Legal Services Limited, a boutique firm working alongside the pre-eminent malpractice insurance company in New Zealand. I assisted over 470 individual doctors and over 175 individual allied health professionals with all types of medico-legal and employment issues. In addition, I assisted a lot more health professionals than that, on a collective basis. 

Under Cogent Law Limited, I am able to assist a wider range of clients, whether you are an employer or an employee, and whether you are in or out of the health sector. 

I hold Health Science and Law degrees from the University of Auckland.  I pride myself in providing quality, friendly and cost effective legal solutions for my clients.
