Local Solicitors, MSB, Bolsters Its Ranks With Promotions Across The Board
The latest raft of promotions sees three of the firm’s team members appointed to Associates, two of which have been with MSB since beginning their careers in law as Legal Assistants.
The new Associates include Sarah McGuinness in the Commercial Property department, Sarah Coakley in Commercial Property and David Tarttelin, who is part of the firm’s Civil and Commercial Litigation department. Calum Whelan, who is part of MSB’s Family Law department and joined the firm in 2021, has also been promoted from Solicitor to Senior Associate in the latest raft of promotions.
'They’ve played a crucial role in MSB’s growth and are a true credit to our business' - Emma Carey, Managing Partner at MSB.
From its inception, MSB Solicitors has held a focus on promoting employees from within and providing its staff with opportunities to develop and progress through the ranks within the firm.
The latest promotions take the total number of Senior Associates to nine and Associates to 10 just as MSB reaches 183 employees in total. The news follows a remarkable start to the year for the law firm after it increased its North West footprint by opening its first Manchester office in April, as well as welcoming over 74 new members of staff in the last 18 months alone.
Sarah McGuinness, who has worked at MSB since 2014 and qualified as a Solicitor in 2018, said: 'I’m so happy to have been promoted to Associate after eight years with MSB. I started my journey as a Legal Assistant here before qualifying as a Solicitor four years back, and I feel incredibly lucky to be able to continue with my progression now as an associate.'
Sarah added: 'I hope to contribute to the continued development and success of MSB and am excited to play a role in the firm’s undoubtedly bright future.'
Emma Carey, Managing Partner at MSB, said: 'At MSB, we know that to do the best work, we need the best people. Since the launch of the firm in 1988, we have been committed to the development and success of our staff. Our in-house training department has played an important role in helping us continuously develop, progress and promote our staff, which ultimately benefits them, the firm and our clients.'
She added: 'We’re extremely proud to reward the determination and talent of Sarah, David, Sarah and Calum. They’ve played a crucial role in MSB’s growth and are a true credit to our business.'
