At Pragma, one of our main points of difference and guiding principles is our involvement and leadership in the community. We pride ourselves on actively engaging with and uplifting our community. This is one of our five firm values.

We do this through our various sponsorships of local organisations that align with our values and internal events we host for those in the legal space both for educational purposes and to foster connections and growth. In essence, community is at the heart of what we do, and we are eager to support our local community at every opportunity.

Sponsorships & Events

Subiaco Justice Centre

The Subiaco Justice Centre (SJC) is a not-for-profit community legal centre providing access to legal services to those in the Subiaco community that need it most.

For over 10 years, Pragma Lawyers has provided extensive in-kind support to the Subiaco Justice Centre (SJC), including providing volunteer staff from the firm on a regular basis, conducting training for SJC staff and volunteers, and hosting SJC events at our office.

Our Founding Director Aaron McDonald sits as the chairperson of the SJC’s board, providing both financial and professional support to the Centre.

WA Good Food Guide

The WA Good Food Guide (WAGFG) is a celebration of the WA dining scene across all areas of cooking, entrepreneurship, wine, beer and service.

Pragma has had a close relationship with the Guide for almost 5 years, providing legal advice and supporting their year-round events that celebrate the hospitality sector.

We believe that hospitality is at the forefront of our community; forging connections and championing local businesses through the power of bringing people together.

As a proud sponsor since its inception, we have partnered with the WSBA on various events to unite and empower local businesses.

Business News

Business News is an independently owned business media organisation in WA, well-regarded as a premier source in providing updates on the latest in business, finance, politics and more.

We have partnered with Business News to bring our Legally Speaking series to its readers, giving Western Australian businesses access to insightful updates on topical legal issues. Led by experienced members of our team and Business News’ Senior Editor, Mark Beyer, these webinars provide expert updates at no cost.

WA Local Government Association

Pragma Lawyers was appointed to the WA Local Government Association (WALGA) Preferred Supplier Panel in 2022.

The addition of Pragma Lawyers to the Panel provides a streamlined procurement process for our firm's legal services without the overheads of a lengthy tender process. This saves WALGA members time, money, and energy, as well as ensures regulatory compliance obligations are met.

Subiaco Football Club

For almost 5 years, Pragma Lawyers has partnered with the Subiaco Football Club as the Exclusive Law Firm of the Club and Gold Partner. We take the view that football is akin to a religion in Western Australia. The success of the Subiaco Lions has been extensive in recent years.

We acknowledge the pivotal role of backing local sports in fostering community cohesion, reinforcing communal identity, and bolstering overall community prosperity.

You will find the Pragma logo on the lower back of the men’s playing jumper and the Pragma team in attendance at SFC home games, cheering them on. Go Lions!

It is crucial that lawyers are continually updating and improving their knowledge and skills, thereby maintaining the quality of the services delivered to their clients and the general public.
