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.



Committed to achieving diversity and inclusion across the board at MSB, Emma actively promotes values of democracy, tolerance, mutual respect and individual liberty in an environment where all staff feel supported and empowered to reach their potential.

MSB is the only North West firm to have achieved the Navajo kite mark – a recognised equality mark supported by the LGBT+ community. Emma was also nominated for Corporate Ally at this year's British LGBT+ Awards.

She has set up an LGBT+ committee at MSB and is working with other local firms to put inclusion and diversity at the top of the agenda.

Emma is also signed up to the Law Society LGBT+ mentoring scheme and is committed to getting MSB in the Stonewall 100 index.

MSB is also one of the most female-friendly firms in the UK. It has an equal gender partnership and a workforce that is more than 80% women.

Emma says: “We have worked hard to introduce progressive policies at MSB that enable all our staff, regardless of gender, sexual orientation or social background, to succeed and reach their potential. New mothers – and fathers – are supported by flexible working policies.

“As a woman in business – and particularly in a sector that has fallen foul of the gender pay gap – it has always been very important to me to empower women in the workplace.

MSB is also committed to serving the communities in which it operates and Emma believes social value should be ingrained in everything the firm does.

“Since LASPO legal aid reforms, legal aid work at MSB is up by some 300% - during the same period, annual revenues at MSB have risen to more than £5m. Proof if it were needed that philanthropic values can be a terrific driver for growth.”

Emma is listed in the 'elite lawyers' list by The Legal 500, which states Emma is "an excellent leader" with "superb knowledge of the law". It adds that MSB is "almost on a par with leading London-based child abduction firms.

MSB won Best Regional Firm at the national Family Law Awards, commended for "promoting diversity and career progression" and its "excellent pro-bono and community initiatives"; and were awarded in the corporate social responsibility category at this year’s Liverpool Echo Regional Business Awards.
