Law firms MSB Solicitors and DTM Legal have both unveiled new appointments.

Liverpool-based MSB has appointed Steven Davies as head of employment law, bolstering its employment department in response to increased client demand.

In his new role, he will head up the employment team, which was founded in January 2018. It has since grown its presence within Merseyside and the surrounding region, following steady and organic growth with multiple client wins.

Steven acts for employers and employees and advises on the full range of employment law matters. He also conducts his own advocacy at the Employment Tribunal, and regularly conducts presentations and training sessions for his clients.

He said: ““I am delighted to have been afforded the opportunity to lead such a brilliant team at one of the leading, most respected, and best-known firms within the region. I look forward to the challenge of contributing to the development of the department.”
