We advise anyone involved in running workplace pension schemes. So far, over 200 clients have sought our advice on all things pensions-related, including defined benefit and defined contribution arrangements, investments, transactions, corporate restructurings and engagement with regulatory bodies.

We primarily work with trustees and employers, and a range of other parties in the industry like administrators, actuaries, consultants and investment funds. This gives us a diverse view into the operations of the different parts of the pensions industry.

We act for a wide range of parties involved the establishment, operation, merger, demerger, and dissolution of workplace pension schemes, life assurance schemes and all forms of trust and contract-based vehicles for the provision of retirement benefits.

We also guide employers on their obligations as regards auto-enrolment and compliance with their regulatory obligations. We also act for a large number of law firms that don’t have their own pensions experts in the UK. They trust us with their clients and we work seamlessly alongside them.

Finally, whilst we have a peerless working knowledge of all the areas that affect pensions, we’re not afraid to bring in subject-experts as and when our clients really need them.

We provide clear advice across five main service areas:
