Pensions

Your business’s pension scheme is one of your employee’s most valuable benefits. It’s also one of the most complex and highly regulated. Our pension lawyers can help you run your business’s pension arrangements, whatever type it is. So keeping you and your business compliant and helping to avoid costly disputes or litigation.

Pension law involves a lot of complicated legislation, especially if you have an international element to your business. We’ll break down the jargon and give you clear advice on your duties and obligations.

Identifying and solving pension issues early can save your business and your pension scheme a great deal of time and money. We’ll help you manage your business and your pension scheme’s risk and prevent disruptive claims or litigation.

What  Pensions Services Do We Offer?

Our pension solicitors can help you with:

  • Interpreting, drafting, and updating pension scheme documents and member communications
  • Assessing how new regulations and guidance affect your business and your pension arrangements
  • The intricacies of auto-enrolment compliance
  • Managing pension disputes
  • Handling pension issues when selling or restructuring a business, including public sector outsourcing
  • Transfers to international pension arrangements, including QROPS
  • Pension tax issues and setting up excepted group life assurance schemes
  • De-risking strategies
  • Pension scheme restructuring.

You can also appoint us as a trustee for your pension fund, either alongside existing trustees or as a sole trustee. You’ll have more time to concentrate on the business and we’ll help you improve investment, governance and communication.

Who Can We Help?

We advise both employers and trustees of pension schemes on all types of scheme and on all aspects of pension law and compliance. We also act for individuals including high net worth individuals and the providers of pension products including QROPS providers. We also guide other pension professionals (and lawyers) through complicated pension law issues.

You can work with us on individual issues or we can provide on-going support as part of a lasting relationship.
