Massons is a leading specialist commercial property law firm, dedicated to delivering a premium service to high quality companies. We have an enviable clientele, and an outstanding reputation for being experts in our field.
We are committed to excellence in everything we do, and aim to be Australia’s most sought-after commercial property lawyers.
Massons seeks to challenge the established law firm model of individual billable targets, bureaucracy and rigid policies. We are determined to prove that a happy, diverse, team-based culture is a better path to profitability. We believe strongly in diversity as a key differentiator and a gateway to innovation.
Our team is handpicked for their expert knowledge and specialisation in property law, as well as their commitment to contributing to a collegiate team environment that places client care, empathy, relationships, results and team endeavour above recording billable hours.
Massons is proud to partner with Human Rights for All (HR4A) established by Alison Battisson, a close personal friend and former colleague. HR4A is an organisation representing refugees and stateless people seeking freedom before Tribunals, in the Federal Court, Federal Circuit Court and the High Court. We have watched Ali’s incredible vision turn into something life changing – there are so many people relying on her team and there are never enough resources to help them all. We are delighted to have been able to develop a graduate secondment program in partnership with HR4A – designed to answer a very specific resourcing need for HR4A so that they can extend their reach.
The secondment structure is hugely rewarding for our firm and our secondees. We offer all graduates the opportunity to undertake a 2-month Massons’ sponsored secondment with HR4A during their graduate year. It has been designed as an “opt-in” program, so our graduates can decide whether or not they would like to participate. Graduates wanting to participate in the program are relocated to the HR4A headquarters in Newtown and are fully immersed in Human Rights law for the full 2 months of the secondment. This usually happens in the 2nd half of their graduate year, after our graduates have completed their tailored training program and are comfortable with their commercial property law journey at Massons. The secondment offers hands-on litigation experience, including opportunities to attend hearings (eg before Tribunals, the Federal Court etc). It is a secondment that will give graduates exposure to work that is literally life-changing.
