Adeline Chapman



Adeline advises trustees, scheme managers and employers on a range of pensions issues, including the interpretation of scheme documentation, member communications and regulatory requirements. She also advises trustees about discretionary decisions and dealing with member complaints.

Recently, Adeline has been involved in various corporate reorganisation projects: advising either trustees or employers about pension scheme mergers and transfers, scheme closures and the introduction of benefit changes.

One recent focus of Adeline’s work is advising trustees about their role in relation to the campaign to detect and prevent pension liberation fraud, and how to treat transfer requests in light of pension liberation concerns.
