Pensions

Pensions in the UK has a long history, and it is a history of change.

Pensions

Overview

Many occupational pension funds have been running for decades, and many will run for decades more. Yet law, regulation and the market have changed almost beyond recognition and pensions remains one of the most rapidly developing sectors. This has led to countless new options and challenges for trustees, employers and pension fund members, as well as for those entering into transactions involving pension funds.

We understand the wide range of information and advice you need to navigate today’s environment. We are at the leading edge of innovation in pensions law and practice. Our longstanding clients include many of the UK’s largest pension funds as well as major employers, and we have partnered and guided them through change after change. We keep track of what’s on the horizon and engage with policy-makers and industry players. This enables our clients to predict and manage new risks and opportunities with confidence.

Pensions is a highly complex and technical field and the financial risks are significant. Clients need to know that their advisers have the right experience and expertise and won’t compromise on quality. But we understand that you also need advice that delivers real value - practical and commercially strategic solutions, provided in a straightforward and efficient way. And you need advisers who are as committed to your goals as you are.

This is the combination that we provide. We have one of the largest pensions practices in the City, and pensions clients are priority clients across our firm. We seamlessly encompass all the technical legal specialisms you need, including investment funds, derivatives and structured products, financial services and markets, corporate finance, private equity, finance, tax, employment, outsourcing and commercial contracts, data protection and dispute resolution. Our experienced and talented multi-specialist teams ensure that you get the clear answers and options you need to help you to plan and make decisions. You can meet our lawyers as you explore our site and find out about the different types of work we have done and can do for you.

One thing that is certain about the future of pensions is that there will be more change. This will affect different clients in different ways – depending on your own circumstances, goals and strategies. We will stay firmly at the forefront of pensions, so that we can help you to predict and plan for the future of pension provision.
