Peter is a UWA law graduate. He joined the firm as a partner in 1989. Prior to that, he gained generalised legal experience at Freehills in Perth and top-tier commercial law firms in London. Peter Kakulas has spent almost 30 years building up his expert knowledge of this specialised area of law and each client benefits from his invaluable expertise.
What I enjoy most about my practice is achieving results for our clients that exceed their expectations. There is a no more satisfying feeling than achieving outstanding results for clients whose lives have been significantly affected by someone else’s negligence and helping them get back on track. I strive to get every extra dollar for my clients and am always looking for ways to maximise my client’s compensation entitlements.
That is why we are here – to fight for the rights of our clients and go the extra mile to achieve the best possible outcome. We are committed to conducting our practice with integrity, honesty and ensuring our client’s interests always come first.
I believe my greatest virtues are my patience, tolerance and being a good listener. I am rewarded when my clients understand legal concepts that I explain in simple easy to understand terms.
I take pride in how many referrals come by word of mouth. They are the best endorsement of our ability. By far our greatest source of work is from our satisfied clients. I pride myself in living up to the expectations of the client and also the person who referred them.
Importantly, I am blessed that we have built a team comprised of committed, very experienced and skilled solicitors, legal assistants and support staff. As a team we have a single minded focus: to deliver personalised quality client service and achieve the highest possible compensation for our clients. Our people are our greatest asset and source of competitive advantage. Come in and meet us and you will agree.
