We help our clients resolve disputes in the most efficient way so they can focus on what’s important to them.
We know your time and money are more valuable working on your business than wasted in a legal dispute. Let’s minimise the disruption and keep you engaged in the things that matter.
Try our Pragmatic approach.
Our focus is on achieving the best outcome we can for you. Often, that means early mediation, avoiding the extra time and expense of protracted litigation.
Fight to win.
Don’t be outgunned. When your dispute can’t be resolved quickly, you need highly-skilled, experienced litigators fighting for you. That’s us.
If we estimate your legal fees, we will only ever revise it before doing the work, not afterwards. You can rest easy, because we will never send you a bill that exceeds our agreed costs.
Approved quality practice.
Our internal procedures have been reviewed and approved by the Law Society as being designed to improve client satisfaction and to avoid waste.

What our clients say about us.
When faced with a serious contract dispute, I was reassured to be recommended by a knowledgeable colleague to consult Pragma Lawyers. On the first consultation (at no cost) my predicament was clearly outlined and options canvased. Tina McAulay worked to expedite an effective solution which quickly resolved the issue while ensuring minimal costs. Overall, a great level of service that deserved high recommendation. Thanks, Pragma!David Hults
Pragma were recommended to Sue and I as a trustworthy firm and they did not disappoint. Aaron provided clear and concise information on what our risks and obligations were in regard to our requirements. We appreciated the plain English approach that Aaron took on our requirements, where we found his easy nature and friendliness made the meeting less stressful. I would certainly use Pragma in the future if required.Roger and Susan GregoryBHP Principal Spatial Data Specialist
Sophia and Aaron’s advice was sound and well received. So thanks to all your team for the assistance to both Juno and myself. I have passed your details on to anyone asking for advice, not sure if it transpired into clients, however I am sincere when I say, your office will be my first port of call if I have any more legal work. Aaron McDonald and Sophia were a good team. Obviously, we will be in contact if anything untoward comes up. Thanks again for all your help.Hector George
I take my hat off to you both, what an outstanding job...for you guys to get a commitment...was just short of a miracle. Take a bow and a hearty pat on the back from me. We hope we don’t need your services too often but I would certainly not deal with any other legal firm but yours.Colin BahnCEO, Global Care Group (GCG) Incorporated
