Anna has spent her entire career advising clients who operate or sponsor occupational pension schemes, with a particular expertise in defined benefit schemes.

Her current work focuses on various stages of the journey to ultimate winding-up, such as bulk purchase annuity transactions, benefit audits and specifications, remedial action, partial termination, participating employer reconciliations, funding and security negotiations. She is also currently engaged in governance, compliance and liability management, including incentive exercises of all kinds.

Anna started in pensions in 1984 and has helped clients work through all the significant pensions legal and regulatory developments as they have unfolded over the last three decades. Anna also has experience with many scheme mergers, demergers, and the pensions aspects of corporate transactions at UK and international levels.

In addition to advising on technical legal issues, she has wide experience of member communications, resolving disputes and scheme documentation, including obtaining a Plain English crystal mark for a Trust Deed and Rules.

Anna is a Fellow and former Council-member of the Pensions Management Institute, and was the Chairman of the Association of Pension Lawyers from 2013 to November 2015. She is a regular public speaker and author of articles on pensions subjects.

As former head of pensions in London, she was also a founding member of leading global law firm Mayer Brown’s global Employment and Benefits Group, having joined Mayer Brown in 1987 and become a partner in 1989.
