I advise trustees and employers of pension schemes (big and small) on everyday issues and project work. My advice routinely includes advising trustees on managing change (whether arising out of corporate activity, sponsor-led proposals or legal reforms). ) I frequently advise on the legal aspects of funding issues and de-risking transactions as well as on scheme documentation and member communications.

I also have particular expertise advising employers on projects. These range from liability management exercises  to benefit reforms and corporate transactions (M&A activity, TUPE, and public to private outsourcings). As part of this focus, I play a leading role in our firm’s offering of transactional support services to other law firms.

My approach to working with clients is a practical one, with a strong emphasis on finding solutions and helping clients meet their objectives within their time constraints.
