Massons is a rarity in the Australian legal fraternity – we have a clear strategy to specialise only in commercial property law.
Led by partners Jodie Masson and Leisha de Aboitiz, Massons was born from a desire to offer a strong alternative and fresh approach. In doing so, Massons employs the best property lawyers and keeps them. We do this by providing a modern and collegiate work environment to engage, empower and drive each individual expert to produce their best work.
We are a hands-on legal firm, making us adept project managers, problem solvers, risk mitigators, negotiators and forward thinkers, as well as experts in commercial property (including office, industrial and retail, development sites, airports and strata schemes). Due to our service specialisation, we’re fortunate to work with a broad range of listed and private fund managers, major corporates, large commercial real estate agencies, not-for-profits and developers.
Our team is knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, agile, empathetic and authentic, which means we’re more interested in building lasting partnerships with our clients rather than being slaves to billable hours.
Operationally, we are relentlessly building our skills and knowledge by committing to both individual and group learning. We are unafraid of sharing that knowledge with our clients and will proactively seek ways that lessen their reliance on us.
We cover every state and legal jurisdiction of Australia, so no matter where the lines of longitude and latitude meet, if it’s in Australia we’ve got your commercial property needs covered.
We are proud members of:
Liability limited by a scheme approved under Professional Standards Legislation. Legal practitioners employed by Massons Commercial Property Law Pty Ltd are members of the scheme.
“Massons are best in class. Their turnaround times are unparalleled, they are really user friendly, and when you deal with them, you deal with a principal. Their culture is fantastic, and that flows from the principals down. They’re commercially minded and a great firm to work with.”
- Rob Gishen, National Director Office Leasing, Colliers International
“Massons delivers a premium, high quality service without the bureaucracy and conflicts we often find in some of the bigger players. They're agile, focused, responsive and go the extra mile. They are proactive, visit the properties they work on, and are innovative in the way they approach deals. The firm provides a unique offering in the market, being a truly collaborative, highly engaged team, but without any additional layers of cost.”

“We’re proud to have worked with Jodie Masson throughout her career, first at PhillipsFox/DLA. Then Middletons/K&L Gates, William James and now at her own firm, Massons. We’d prefer to work with her over the big firms because she gets the job done, without us. She’s never missed a beat."
- Matthew Burrows as Chief Executive Officer, Denison Funds Management Limited
“I’ve worked with Jodie Masson for more than 10 years on various commercial and retail property projects. In my opinion Jodie is the best commercial property lawyer I have worked with. She is straight forward, reliable and has a deep understanding of property law. We’ve worked together on some very successful leasing and capital transactions. I’ve relied on her counsel when forming important commercial decisions. We can rely on her firm to produce accurate documents efficiently and effectively, and always with a quick turnaround.”
- Guy Halsted as Development Executive, 151 Property
