MSB Solicitors has donated the funds to buy hundreds of racquets for tennis-mad local children.
 
MSB will be a presenting sponsor of this summer's Liverpool Hope International Tennis Tournament and the racquets will be used for the festival's Kids Day on June 14.
 
Kids Day has become an integral part of the festival programme and now incorporates around 1,000 children from across the city region.
 
But organisers say as the day has grown and evolved, it has been difficult to keep up with the growing demand for equipment and this year they faced a shortfall of around 400 tennis racquets for the event.
 

MSB have this month unveiled a number of new appointments and changes to its team.
 
Solicitor Andy Matthias joins us from Temperley Taylor in Manchester to head up the firm’s private client team.
 
He has worked as a solicitor for 27 years having previously studied at the University of De Montfort in Leicester and then at the College of Law in Chester.
 
Specialising in matrimonial finance and private children disputes and proceedings, Andy’s career has also seen him work at three other Manchester practices - Linda Myers, Olliers Solicitors and Merrick.
 
“I bring a pragmatic, compassionate and conciliatory approach to dealing with family law matters and my aim is to grow the volume of private paying work at MSB,” he said.
 
“I have a wealth of experience in all types of family law matters, including domestic violence matters, public law proceedings, divorce and financial matters.”
 

MSB Solicitors has played a major role in the expansion of Signature Living Developments - representing the group in its latest venture Signature Works.

MSB assisted Signature with the £3m purchase of the Bling Bling Building in March. The iconic building on Hanover Street was home to celebrity hairdresser Herbert Howe, and is the third in the Signature Works portfolio.

The salon will remain on the first floor of the building, which was designed by Peter Gough to reflect the personality of flamboyant Howe, who died in October.
Signature Works is the co-working arm of Signature Living Developments, which will introduce almost 20,000 sq ft of flexible work space to the market in Liverpool city centre.

MSB Solicitors - Best Family Law Firm Liverpool 2017 - Liverpool Law SocietyMSB have been awarded best family firm at the Liverpool Law Society Awards, hosted on Friday, May 12 at Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel.
 
It is welcome news and a much deserved win for our family team, for whom the last 12 months has marked a significant period of development.
 
In September, MSBs family team were shortlisted for the Regional Firm of the Year for the North in the national Family Law Awards.
 
And in July last year, MSB were appointed to the International Child Abduction and Contact Panel by the Official Solicitors Office, following an intensive application process evidencing considerable experience and expertise in this area of the law.
 
MSB are the only firm in the North West including Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, North Wales and Cheshire to be appointed to the panel.

Next week, May 8 - 14, marks mental health awareness week.
 
Poor mental health is one of the biggest issues in the workplace today, causing more than 70 million working days to be lost each year – a figure that has soared 24% since 2010.
 
One in five people admit to taking days of work due to stress and around a quarter of the working population say they would consider resigning through stress.
 
So what is causing this incline in poor mental health?
 
The effects of Government-imposed cuts on money, jobs and benefits are all certainly affecting factors. Add to that, that less than half of employees in the UK say they wouldn’t feel comfortable talking to their manager or line manager about feeling stressed at work.

Well done to Danielle Blaylock from our commercial department and Alison Thomas, who ditched their desks and took to the dance floor to raise funds for our nominated charity, Claire House, earlier this month.
 
The Strictly Come Dancing event held at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool raised over £40,000 to support seriously and terminally ill children from the Wirral and beyond.

Victoria Hughes, who works in MSBs plot sales team, has launched a desperate appeal to raise more than £8,000 for a lifesaving operation for her pet dog Bella.

Bella, a seven-year-old cinnamon chow chow spends her days in excruciating pain due to severe arthritis caused by a condition called hip dysplasia.

She has to be given strong painkilling drugs to make her more comfortable. However, she is now becoming immune to these as well as experiencing reoccurring side effects.

Her only hope is a two-part hip replacement costing more than £8,000. Victoria has now set up a GoFundMe fundraising page to help reach Bella’s operation target.

MSB is playing a key role in three prestigious residential developments in the city centre.

Our off-plan sales team is working with the developers of 8 Water Street, Colonial Chambers and Reliance House.

In total, the value of developments tops £30m and will comprise almost 300 separate apartments offering the best in city-centre living.

The former home of insurance giant Aviva, 8 Water Street, will become known as The Residence at 8 Water Street.

The £12m scheme consists of 94 individual residential units split into studio, one and two-bedroom apartments.

Outside spaces are also available to residents on the second and fifth floors in the form of a roof garden offering spectacular views of the city.

Hayley Catherall, partner and solicitor in MSBs family department, has been highly commended for her work in apprenticeships by Damar, the national apprenticeships provider.
 
News came further to Damar Training’s Annual Apprenticeship Awards earlier this month.
 
Having narrowly missed out on the award for apprenticeships supervisor, Hayley received a letter stating that the judges were particularly impressed with the standard of the nominations in her category and felt strongly she should be specially commended for going above and beyond in her role.

This Sunday, April 2, marks the ninth annual World Autism Awareness Day, where individuals and organisations around the world do their bit to help raise awareness of some of the challenges faced by individuals with autism and their families.
 
It is a day dedicated to increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder and advancing research into causes and better interventions.
 
And this month, the team at MSB have undergone training for how to better support specialist needs for clients, customers and employees with autism.
