MSB recognised in The Times Best Law Firms 2023

We’re delighted to announce MSB Solicitors has once again been named in the prestigious The Times Best Law Firms 2023.  

Now in its fifth year, The Times and independent market-research company, Statista, conducted surveys among thousands of lawyers and used their responses to identify the leading 250 law firms in England & Wales, and the top 40 in Scotland. 

The news of our inclusion comes following a successful year for all of us here at MSB, which has seen us increase our North West footprint, opening our first Manchester office as part of our commitment to increase services to communities across the region. 

We have also had a positive year in terms of recruitment and employee retention, having recruited 160 new staff members in just 18 months and promoted 21 members of our team. Further, demonstrating our commitment to providing opportunities for the next generation of talent within the legal profession, this year we have taken on a total of nine new trainees to qualify with us.  

The news of our growth in numbers and office locations coincides with record growth in revenue, with an increase of approximately £1.2 million each year for the last three years, and a further £2 million anticipated in the next 12 months. 

In recognition of our commitment to delivering excellence and substantial growth, this year MSB has been shortlisted for a number of awards, including this year’s LexisNexis Family Law Awards 2022 for ‘Family Law Firm of the Year’, read more here 

Last month, the firm was listed in four categories in the latest Legal 500, with both our Crime and Family departments being ranked as Tier 1. As part of the 2023 list, various members of our staff also received distinctive recognition, with the Managing Partner, Emma Carey, named a ‘Leading Individual’, Katie Camozzi being highlighted as a ‘Rising Star’, Dr Emma Palmer listed as a ‘Next Generation Partner’ and both Emma Palmer and Pauline McNamara recognised as ‘Practice Heads’.  

Last month, we were also recognised in the Chambers and Partners 2023 guide, with Pauline McNamara, Caroline Hamilton-Barrett and Dr Emma Palmer all named as ‘Recognised Practitioners’. Our Family and Crime departments also received further acknowledgement after being ranked in Band 1 of the official guide released in October. 


Emma Carey, Managing Partner at MSB Solicitors, said:  

“We are delighted to be named once again among the top 250 firms in England and Wales by The Times. Our teams are truly exceptional in their fields, and it’s great to receive recognition in this year’s list.
