Managing change, distress and winding up

Change is the only constant in the pensions world. Clients may need to adapt to unexpected developments, such as the insolvency of a sponsoring employer, an employer’s proposal to cease accruals or terminate the scheme, a proposal to merge the scheme with another or simply to reorganise its own business. When it comes to supporting clients who are initiating, responding to or grappling with the implications of change, the partners at ARC Pensions Law have decades of experience to call upon in giving advice.
