Our pensions lawyers advise trustees and employers in relation to over 70 pension schemes of various sizes. They have unique expertise in relation to advising insurance companies and IFAs in relation to the development of pensions products. These range from SIPPs (self invested personal pension plans) to group life policies and healthcare trusts.
Working together with our employment team, the pensions team specialises in advising employers in managing liabilities and saving costs in relation to occupational pension schemes. They have significant experience in advising employers with overseas parent companies in relation to UK pensions issues - often advising in relation to pensions issues on significant corporate transactions and entering into negotiations with the pensions regulator.
Our trust corporation Lawrence Graham Trust Corporation acts as trustee of a variety of pension schemes either as a sole trustee or as a professional trustee amongst other lay trustees.
