Rebecca has been working as a pensions lawyer at Osborne Clarke for ten years and advises on all aspects of pensions law.
Her work is split roughly half and half between advising trustees and employers of occupational pension schemes, so she believes she has a very balanced view of the issues and dilemmas faced by both sides.Rebecca has considerable experience in advising on legal issues during the whole life of a pension scheme, from establishment through to termination and winding-up (although these days establishment is considerably rarer!), and has helped many of her clients explore ways of managing their defined benefit schemes through exercises such as scheme closures, benefit changes and mergers.
She also provides advice to our corporate clients on the pensions aspects of acquisitions, disposals and reorganisations (including Pensions Regulator powers and clearance), as well as the implications of business transfers, both within the private sector and on public sector outsourcings.
Rebecca trained as a lawyer after finishing her degree in English at the University of Bristol and joined Osborne Clarke as a trainee in 2001.
