How can we help you?

We understand that running a pension scheme can present significant financial and operational risk.  Our longstanding expertise in pensions law means we can help employers, trustees and administrators of defined contribution and defined benefit schemes recognise and deal with these risks.  We aim to provide tailored and strategic advice and solutions to help you meet your challenges.

Whether you operate in the corporate, charity or not-for-profit sector, our experienced team of pensions lawyers can advise you on all pensions related matters including funding and covenant issues relating to your pension arrangement and how to deal with matters efficiently and effectively. If you are restructuring your operations, contracting out services or considering changing terms and conditions for your workforce, we can offer tailored, practical, strategic pensions advice.
