MSB Solicitors Liverpool
Just days since it was announced she will succeed Paul Bibby as managing partner of the firm, MSB Solicitors’ Emma Carey has been listed in the elite “leading lawyers” list by The Legal 500 – Britain’s top guide to the legal profession.
The guide, which was published on Wednesday [11 October 2017], states: “Emma Carey is an excellent leader; she has superb knowledge of the law and is also very sensitive and insightful, which is of huge importance for her vulnerable clients."
Founding partner and head of crime, Sean Sexton, also makes the list and MSB has been recommended as a top tier firm for crime and fraud for the second year running.

The Legal 500, which every year highlights the work of outstanding firms and lawyers, has also recommended MSB for general crime and private client work and singles, in total, six of its solicitors out for praise.
It continues: “Clients of MSB Solicitors single out 'the personal interest the firm takes in each and every case', and the track record the firm has in complex, large-scale fraud and confiscation cases.
“Sean Sexton heads the department and is praised for his 'precise and thorough preparation and extensive knowledge of and experience in serious and complex financial crime. Sexton gives the right support and advice to his clients each time'.
“The practice is particularly known for its skill in representing individuals who are subject to major criminal investigations by HMRC; key matters included representing a professional in a case involving alleged breaches of Disclosure of Tax Avoidance Schemes regulations through the selling of high-risk investment schemes to high-net-worth individuals.
“The 'outstanding' Andrew Pearson is singled out for his specialism in representing defendants who are autistic or suffer from Asperger's syndrome.
“MSB Solicitors has an 'extremely strong family department' that handles all areas of family law 'to a high standard'. It is active in both public and private law matters, including those related to children, divorce, finance and domestic violence.
“For some 'the firm is now almost on a par with the leading London-based child abduction firms and is quickly developing into a leading firm for international family law work in the North West'.
“Emma Palmer 'pulls out all the stops for her clients and is excellent at child abduction and care proceedings'.
“Kirsty Leather has a 'great brain and has taken to international child abduction work very quickly'.
“For children law matters, Sarah Achilles is 'always friendly, approachable and very much puts clients at ease'.”
Emma Carey said: “Being recognised in The Legal 500 is an incredible achievement for a fantastically talented team. Of course I’m immensely proud of those individuals who have been highlighted, but I’m just as proud of the entire team at MSB who always go the extra mile to ensure we’re at the pinnacle of modern family law."
“It is fantastic too, to maintain our foothold in crime, an area of the law for which MSB has become much acclaimed.  Sean Sexton is quite simply an exceptional lawyer and is supported by an extremely knowledgeable team - to have been ranked number one for the second year is testament to that and due recognition of their collective skills, hard work and dedication.”
In 2016, MSB was ranked in the top tier in the North West for its work on financial crime – it was the only Liverpool firm to make it into the top bracket.
And in 2015, Sean Sexton was described as a ‘powerhouse’ for his work in complex fraud cases.
The 2017 Legal 500 rankings come further to a string of accolades for MSB, who were named best family firm at the Liverpool Law Society Awards in May and were awarded Business of the Year at the City of Liverpool Business Awards in July.
The firm is also currently shortlisted for Best Family Firm for the North at the National Family Law Awards. In June, MSB also reported its strongest financial results to date, topping £5m for the first time in its history.
