About Us

White & Mason is a vibrant and progressive law firm based in the city of Melbourne, Australia. Melbourne is known as the cultural capital of Australia and also houses some of Australia’s largest corporations. The city is also an incubator for emerging businesses and start-ups.

Our core values are built on Respect, Integrity and Transparency. Through these values we look to build long term relationships founded in loyalty from us to you.

Our lawyers have experience working with some of Australia’s largest law firms and are committed to resolve your legal matters in a commercial manner in order to minimise your legal spend and your exposure to risk.

We are often engaged to act for clients in high-stakes disputes and litigation that are adjudicated in the Supreme Court and Federal Court of Australia. We also represent clients in high-end commercial and property deals and are able advise on the full life-cycle of a transaction.

Our clients range from high net-worth private clients and families, small medium enterprises, well known not for profit organisations, and multinational companies.

“Audaces fortuna juvat” (fortune favours the bold).  The only way to truly experience the richness of life is to take risks.

That is the basic tenet that informs Mark White’s approach to existence, and it has played a crucial part in helping him find equilibrium between running a successful legal practice and enjoying a fulfilling personal life.

Mark White is an experienced lawyer, strong on witness and evidence examination.  He acts frequently in the Victorian Supreme Court as well as all other courts in Victoria, personally handling high profile cases for major clients.

White & Mason Lawyers is still a boutique practice, but Mark White’s experiences have created an unconventional firm with a very clear philosophy.  He likes to employ people with compassion and experience who value a good work-life balance, not surprisingly then, the majority of his lawyers are women.  The testosterone-fuelled arena of big law is anathema to Mark White.

We don’t have lawyers willing to work 60-70 hours a week as a default mode, because we want them to have a family life, read books, travel, enjoy the footy, or do whatever they enjoy!  People with life knowledge and fulfilled lives tend to be better lawyers, because they have a greater understanding of culture and clients.

In all things that the White & Mason team do it is a constant principle that our core values of respect, integrity and transparency are observed in all relationships.

Whether you are a Plaintiff or a Defendant, you will require commercial advice as to whether the action is worthwhile from a financial perspective and strategic planning as to the best manner to conduct such litigation if deemed appropriate.

Wills and Estates

From the preparation of a Will, Financial or Medical Power of Attorney through to the administration of the probate of the Will, we can assist you to achieve the optimum outcome.  Wills can be simple or can involve testamentary trusts depending on your needs.  A Will should reflect your needs, not just be a standard piece of paper.

Family Law

From the point that you enter a relationship you should be aware of time frames and your exposure through to the unfortunate event of the failure of a marriage.  We can help you in all aspects of matrimonial law, including premarital and cohabitation agreements through to children and property arrangements should the relationship or marriage fail.
