As pensions law and regulation has become more complex, and funding deficits increased, employers and pension schemes’ trustees have needed to adapt to new challenges and new solutions – and need expert legal advice to guide them through the often complex issues that these give rise to. We work with employers and pension trustees to manage schemes through both normal circumstances and trying times. We help trustees comply with their duties and cope with problems that arise along the way, and employers in managing the financial risks posed by their past pension liabilities as well as in structuring good work-based pensions for current employees.
Our work covers all aspects of pensions law on both the employer and trustee side, including benefit changes, scheme closures, compliance, trustee training, refinancing, restructuring, High Court litigation and member complaint resolution.
Our clients recognise our expertise. They include billion-pound schemes such as Transport for London, Imperial Tobacco and BAE Systems, right down to schemes with assets of several million pounds. Whatever our client’s size, and whatever their needs, we provide them with strong commercial and practical advice, backed by highly-experienced partners.
