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.

What our clients say

I recently had a complex legal matter that involved some unpacking and finessing. I engaged the services of Pragma Lawyers and the outcome was very favourable for us. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pragma to my clients and I will contine to use their legal services for any future needs.

"Pragma recently facilitated appropriate workplace behaviour training for 200 employees at BDO Perth. Libbi and Max presented the content in an informative and interactive manner, and were able to apply a commercial lens to the training. The case study examples used in the training were highly relevant to our industry and helped engage our people in what can be a complex and ambiguous area of legislation. I have had positive feedback from Partners and employees following the session and I would have no hesitation in recommending Pragma for future training opportunities."

Jill Holme

BDO WA

"We used Pragma to draw up new staff contracts following the new WHS Act and found their service to be seamless. Quick response times and price transparently provided up front. They happily answered our follow up queries and understood our industry specific needs amazingly quickly. Will happily use again as our go-to legal support."

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 regularly refer my clients and my personal legal work to Aaron and his team. They are very much at the forefront of the industry with fixed fees and the quality of service. I would highly recommend Aaron and his team at Pragma Legal without reservation.
