As pensions is such a technical and specialist area of law, an increasing number of first rate, full service firms do not have an in-house specialist pensions team. There may, however, be occasions where pensions are central to an issue regarding transactions, restructuring or employment. ARC Pensions Law partners and associates have years of experience providing support of this type. We understand that the needs of the client require us to work closely with other lawyers, providing information in a timely and pragmatic way. We aim to build strong, effective relationships, understanding your timetables and methods of working so that we fit seamlessly into your work product.
