Strategy & culture

The go-to legal practice for pensions advice. Their pension expertise is undoubted, but this combined with the team’s pragmatism and approachability sets them apart.

Pensions and retirement savings is our chosen area of expertise and we have built a market leading position and reputation since the firm was established in 1966. We believe that our specialisation, client focus and position at the heart of the industry is what sets us apart.

Our strategy is built around three pillars:

  • maintaining and enhancing our complete service to the pensions and retirement savings industry
  • investing in developing areas such as ESG, cyber and dashboards
  • ensuring that Sackers remains a thriving business and a great place to work. 

Our culture

Our people are our most valuable asset, we support and nurture their development and invest in their future. We achieve excellence through working together and sharing knowledge. As a result, most lawyers choose to spend their entire career with us which means clients benefit from stable and committed teams.

Diversity and inclusion is a longstanding part of our culture. We believe passionately that our staff will be most successful when they bring their authentic selves to work and that, because of this, our firm and its client offering will be successful too. This leads to a friendly and open collegiate culture where people at all levels of the firm are respected and valued. 

Because we are all focused on pensions and retirement savings, there is a shared commitment to quality of service and outcome which unites us. Throughout the firm there is an underlying sense of pride in who we are and what we do.

We are proud of the recognition we have received from different awards including being accredited as a Top Employer in 2024 by the Top Employers Institute, due to our outstanding HR policies and excellent workplace environment.

In 2023, we were named pension lawyers of the year at the Professional Pensions UK Pensions Awards, Pensions Age Awards and Corporate Adviser Awards.

Charitable support

We support a range of charities with a flagship beneficiary selected annually from staff nominations. Meeting monthly, our CSR committee identifies volunteering initiatives to support the flagship, and supports staff in their own fundraising activities for charities close to their heart. These include numerous fundraising events each year, with donations matched by the firm.

On an ongoing basis, we support Re-engage, a charity that works with communities to limit social isolation in older people.
