Last week, MSB Solicitors marked the official launch of their city centre office at St Paul's Square. We took the decision to move offices after staff numbers rose by more than 30% in 2016.
MSB now employ over 100 people across three sites and we announced five new partners earlier this month.
The new office, located on the first floor No4 St Pauls,boasts more than 5,500 sq ft in the heart of Liverpool’s commercial district. St Pauls Square has become the essential address for professional services firms in the city.
Managing partner Paul Bibby says: “The search for our new office space was not easy - there is still a dearth of quality office space in the city.
"I'm pleased to say, though, that I really do feel we have found the ideal address for us, putting us amongst a number of our peers and strategic partners and with all of the facilities we need to continue to develop and offer an exceptional service to our clients.”
MSB signed a 10 year lease with Muse Developments in December. Mark Worthington of Worthington Owen negotiated terms on behalf of MSB and national refurbishment specialists Aztec and interiors firm Heatons worked on the fit out under the instruction of partner Joanne Dalton.
Of the move, Downtown boss Frank McKenna said: “The office at St Paul’s Square and is a fantastic space MSB are a great addition to the commercial district, they are one of the most innovative law firms in the city.
“MSB have a unique ethos and culture for a law firm – not only do they demonstrate a solid social commitment in terms of apprenticeships and the women’s agenda, but they are growing commercially – it just shows that you can have a sound business, make a good profit, but still take care of the things that really matter.
“The move puts them amongst a number of growing firms and means they can talk to other businesses across different sectors and grow together.
“Liverpool has had a commercial district for a number of years in name, but now it is actually beginning to feel like a commercial district and there’s a real buzz about it now – it’s evidence that the city’s business community is growing.”
