MSB Solicitors Liverpool
This month, we are proud to unveil a new look having undergone an extensive brand-refresh. The brand update coincides with our 30th anniversary in business and follows a series of changes at the firm, particularly within our senior management team.
Emma Carey, who took up the mantle of managing partner in March, says the rebrand signifies the beginning of a new era for MSB, whilst commemorating its roots and celebrating its growth.
She added: “I am lucky to have started my legal career at MSB and have grown with the firm over the last 20 years. I am incredibly proud to have played a part in its journey, from humble beginnings in a former pet shop on Rice Lane, to operating three offices across the city.

Managing partner at MSB, Emma Carey, makes the shortlist for this year’s Livercool Awards – recognised for her commitment to improving the community and environment.


Hosted by Downtown in Business, this year marks the sixteenth annual Livercool Awards. Emma has been nominated for the Community Impact award. The nomination follows a string of award wins, including the CSR award at this year’s Liverpool Echo Regional Business Awards.


Emma says: “I’m incredibly pleased and proud to have been nominated in the Community Impact Award. MSB is built on values of community and philanthropy, with social value being at the very heart of everything that we do.


“As a firm, we strive to provide the very best legal services and advice to the communities we serve. We must stay abreast of changing societal dynamics – and in order to do that, we invest heavily in training and development of all our staff.


“My name may be listed on the shortlist, but this is 100 per cent a team effort and due recognition of everybody here at MSB and their commitment to community and social good.”

MSB Solicitors are inviting friends, family and comrades from the business community to join them for Bonkers Bingo at The Black Pearl in Cains Brewery Village on Thursday, September 27th.
Set to be an evening filled with fizz, fun and fantastic prizes, the event has been organised to raise funds for MSB’s nominated charity, The Anthony Walker Foundation.
MSB are committed to community investment and have supported The Anthony Walker through a range of fundraising activities since last summer, raising more than £5,000 to date.

Family solicitor and specialist cross-border mediator at MSB, Wendy Eves, has made the shortlist for Family Law Associate of the Year at the National Family Law Awards 2018.
The awards aim to celebrate the success and achievements of family lawyers and the vital contribution that they make to society.
And Liverpool are also represented in the Clerking Team of the Year category and Family Firm for the North, with 7 Harrington Street Chambers and Broudie Jackson Canter making the respective shortlists.
It is the second time MSB have made the shortlist at the awards, having won Family Law Firm for the North in 2017.

MSB Solicitors has reaffirmed its commitment to representing the most vulnerable people in society after securing new Legal Aid franchises.
Despite huge pressures on the UK’s Legal Aid system, Liverpool-Based MSB continues to offer an “unwavering commitment to legal aid and access to justice”.  Since the LASPO act, Legal Aid work in its family department has increased by around 300%.

MSB added to its growing collection of awards after picking up Corporate Social Responsibility Business of the Year at the Liverpool Echo Business Awards 2018.

The awards, now in their 24th year, are the longest standing business awards in the Liverpool city region. Other big winners on the evening included Birkenhead shipyard Cammell Laird, and Liverpool Vision boss Max Steinberg who was crowned Business Person of the Year.

String of accolades
It comes as the latest in a string of awards for MSB, whose recent wins have included Legal Firm of the Year at The City of Liverpool Business Awards 2017, the coveted Chairman’s Award at the Liverpool Women in Business Awards 2018, and Best Regional Firm for the North at the national Family Law Awards 2017.

The judges at the Family Law Awards commented: “We were particularly impressed with this firm's dedication to promoting diversity and career progression within its team and its excellent pro-bono and community initiatives and its commitment to the campaign for legal aid.”

Managing partner of MSB, Emma Carey, says philanthropy does not have to come at a cost

Emma Carey assumed the role of managing partner of MSB in March 2018. Previously partner and head of the firm’s family department, Emma has been pivotal to the growth and direction of MSB throughout its 30 years.

MSB is a firm built on progressive, people-orientated policies, something Emma says she will uphold and evolve.

And whilst Emma’s new strategy and vision for the firm is firmly centred on fee growth and profitability, she has pledged to take on work in emerging areas of the law and is committed to always delivering social value.

We are delighted to announce that from September 2018, we welcome Cheesman & Co to the fold at MSB.
Cheesman & Company specialises in family law and its team has more than 40 years’ experience servicing clients nationally. The firm brings a strong portfolio of clients and will bolster MSB’s growing family and property law teams, based across offices in Allerton and the city centre.
The move comes as part of managing partner Emma Carey’s strategy to drive financial growth across key areas of the firm and follows the acquisition of debt recovery firm Matrix in January.

A training contract with a major firm is the number one priority for every third-year law student and so, inevitably, competition is fierce.

Failure to land one quickly, particularly if your peers appear to be making headway, can quickly lead to frustration and disillusionment. However, establishing a career in the law isn’t a race and sometimes being patient and seeking an alternative route can be the smart thing to do.

In September this year, I start my training contract with MSB Solicitors in Liverpool - and I could not be happier about that-  and when I do begin I will be bringing much more than just a good degree and youthful enthusiasm.

There have been genuine concerns around the health of the office market in Liverpool. With a dwindling stock of grade A space those concerns are certainly justified. But there are reasons to be optimistic.

Over the past couple of years we have lost something in the region of 1m sq ft of office space as old stock has been converted in to apartments, restaurants and hotels.

That process must be seen as largely positive. It has brought empty accommodation, no longer suitable for modern office occupiers, back into use and helped stimulate Liverpool’s residential property market and its £4bn visitor economy.
