Family lawyer John Owens has returned to MSB Solicitors to join its leadership team.

John was at Liverpool-based MSB for more than two years from 2019, working as a senior associate solicitor. He then relocated to Manchester to be head of family at national law firm Slater and Gordon Lawyers UK.

Now he has returned to MSB’s headquarters at No 4 St Paul’s Square as partner at its family team. 

While his background was initially in litigation, after completing his training as a solicitor with PMC, John then took the decision to specialise in family law.

He has since developed specific expertise in dealing with mid to high-net-worth financial cases, those involving an international element and private Children Act cases. His work includes businesses, overseas assets, complicated pension or trust arrangements and inherited assets.

John said: “I’m thrilled to be moving back to MSB with its continued growth over recent years, increasing strength in the market, and commitment to staying ahead of the curve.

There are exceptional solicitors at the firm, with real specialist knowledge, and we are very well-placed to offer an excellent service to clients… It feels like coming home.”

Emma Carey, managing partner at MSB, added: “During his time at MSB, John became a well-known and respected family lawyer in the region.

“He was instructed by high profile business owners, sports and TV personalities and their spouses, property developers, and professionals, including many from the legal community.

“He has gained additional valuable experience in the last year which strengthens not only our family team, but MSB’s overall offering for the future.”
