Richard Edwards joins Pragma Legal

By 30 June, 2017 January 21st, 2019 No Comments


Pragma welcomes a progressive Melbourne face to the team.

Richard Edwards founded Whites Legal, a fast and agile practice working in front end commercial law and also looking after a delicious species of SME: bars and restaurants.

Richard has a track record for implementing tiered, guaranteed, fixed pricing on all non-dispute work, giving clients’ choice, control and certainty. Richard has been recognised for his work as a finalist in national and Victorian law awards, interviews with leading industry publications and an article written for The Australian.

Richard recently moved back to Perth to be closer to family and popped in to Pragma on a recent visit:

Fixed price to mediation is a revelation. Litigation is uncertain enough without knowing what your lawyer is going to charge. Fixed pricing for a set scope agreed upon upfront is the better way. It’s a great match.”

Richard’s clients are used to a very small and agile firm and will now enjoy a slightly larger, equally agile team of lawyers.

Richard will bolster the commercial practice and bring his knowledge of fixed pricing to Pragma, while seeking out coffee just like he had in Melbourne.

We are delighted to have Richard on board. I’m looking forward to him hitting the ground running when he joins on July 5” Aaron McDonald, Director of Pragma Legal, said.
