Project Management

Sackers legal project management function supports our lawyers and ensures that our clients benefit from dedicated and specialist knowledge of legal processes and matter delivery when completing large, complex and lengthy projects.

The specialist focus of Sackers enables us to work as an integrated part of the client team rather than a ‘bolt on’ service, as we are able to combine our knowledge and understanding of Sackers clients and the pensions industry when applying project management skills and developing processes.

This specialist support allows our lawyers to concentrate on providing the best legal advice and strategic guidance throughout a matter.

The type of projects we regularly support include; administration, governance and trustee effectiveness, transfers and large investment transactions.

Whether we are running the whole project on behalf of our clients, or working with in-house teams and other advisers fitting the legal aspects into a wider programme, we recognise the importance of delivering on time and in budget. We have created a firmwide framework to implement best practice across the key stages of a matter:

Scoping – initial discussions about overall project objectives and deliverables

Planning – defining the project, tasks, timeline, resource and cost, to ensure transparency from the outset

Delivery – monitoring and reporting to ensure the project stays on track and on budget

Wrap up – closing the project, capturing best practice and lessons learned, and seeking client feedback.
