Defamation

"It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently”

— Warren Buffett, Chairperson of Berkshire Hathaway.

We provide strategic advice and representation to our clients to protect against threats to reputation.  Our firm is recognised for securing outstanding results for our clients in high stakes matters.

We acknowledge that when approached by our clients in these matters it often requires us to move quickly via injunctive relief, restraining orders or the issuance of Concerns Notices to safeguard our clients’ positions.

Our team, rich in experience, excels at advocating for both plaintiffs and defendants in defamation cases. Our balanced perspective allows us to provide nuanced strategies and robust representation, whether you're seeking justice for reputational harm or defending against allegations of defamation. We understand the intricacies of this delicate area of law and commit to delivering clear, ethical, and effective solutions that prioritise your reputation and rights.

Pragma has succeeded at first instance and on appeal in defamation proceedings.  We have experience advising our clients in:

  • Media and defamation

  • Online harassment and falsehoods

  • Privacy and breach of confidence

What our clients say

Aaron is an extremely hard working and dedicated professional. His commitment to client service is second to none, and hes a good bloke too. Its probably a bit cliché to say Pragma are pragmatic but really that’s a great way to describe it. The reason I do recommend Pragma is beacuse I know when I send a client or an associate to Pragma that theyre going to be happy with the outcome that they receive.

I want to again express my thanks to Deborah for the sage advice provided with regards to our client contract. Both us and the client were pleased with the outcome as with Deborah’s help we were able to find a middle ground that satisfied everyone’s concerns. The client was impressed with our response. Being our largest client, it was important that we arrived at a reasonable agreement with them – I am grateful for the assistance Deborah provided.
