We are delighted to have notched up another award this month after beating off strong competition to win Best Legal Firm at the City of Liverpool Business Awards.

More than 250 guests attended the awards dinner at Sefton Park Palm House on July 16th. The dinner is held annually by Downtown Liverpool in Business in association with Liverpool Vision and is a popular event on Liverpool’s business calendar.

The awards aim to celebrate the brightest and best of the region’s commercial world, and categories include best financial, best newcomer and, of course, best legal, as well as awards to mark talent within the hospitality and digital sectors.

MSB were among 17 winners in all, including Santander who picked up the award for Best Business Bank and Liverpool John Lennon Airport who were awarded Business of the Year.

Managing partner Paul Bibby said: “Of course, we’re ecstatic to have won. We’ve grown significantly over the past twelve months, expanding our city centre office and there have been a number of key appointments across the board. I feel the award is testament to the hard work of a committed team and very well deserved.”

The City of Liverpool Business Awards (COLBA) are in their eleventh year and celebrate the most forward-thinking, entrepreneurial and creative businesses across the city.

Chief executive of Downtown in Business, Frank McKenna said: “The shortlist of entries alone shows the breadth of talent in our region and the awards are a perfect way to celebrate and recognise the contribution these businesses make to the city region’s economic growth.

“I am delighted for all the nominees, and of course the winners. After coming through the toughest recession in living memory, it is those businesses that are the true heroes and the people really helping us to claw our way out of the downturn. They have all made an invaluable contribution to wealth and jobs creation in Liverpool, and they deserve huge congratulations and credit for their tremendous efforts.”
