Ferdinand Lovett

Associate Director


Ferdinand advises clients from a wide range of industries and acts for trustees of pension schemes and employers alike.

He has a particular interest in the workplace pension reforms and is a member of Sackers’ specialist auto-enrolment team, keeping a keen eye on auto-enrolment law and policy as it develops.

Ferdinand’s expertise encompasses other areas where employment law meets pensions law such as pensions consultation, pensions wording in employment contracts and questions on “worker” status in connection with the auto-enrolment regime.

Ferdinand’s practice includes contentious matters, having recently advised in connection with a High Court pensions litigation case.

Ferdinand also has experience with schemes in transition to the PPF as well as various aspects of international pensions law.
