The all-female partnership at boutique firm Massons is shaking up what it means to be a female lawyer. While delivering top-tier commercial property advice with a model that shuns the billable hour and encourages client care, empathy, relationships, results and team endeavour, the firm is integrating innovative working arrangements for women in an example for the industry as a whole.

With seven female staff  in total, and two members with children under the age of eight, the firm has built itself from the ground up with a proactive maternity leave policy designed to encourage long-term staff  retention. It has also introduced flexible work arrangements for staff  at all levels, and both partners lead by example, with one employed four days per week and the other working remotely at least one week per month. The partnership’s understanding that a large part of the team are – or will shortly be – working mums has seen the creation of a child-friendly zone in the new office fit-out to encourage staff  to bring their children into the office if the need ever arises.
