Having previously worked in the pensions legal team of one of the UK’s largest professional services firms, I have a unique understanding of the wider pensions issues that are relevant when solving clients’ problems and have often worked closely with actuarial, covenant, investment, transformation and industrial relations specialists.

I have advised some of the UK’s largest employers on pensions reform, often where clarity is needed from the High Court or Court of Appeal on the pension scheme’s rules.

As well as advising trustee and corporate clients on contentious and non-contentious matters, I have worked on a number of high profile liquidations. I have also been seconded to the pensions legal team of a leading UK insurer.

Example cases:

  • British Broadcasting Corporation v BBC Pension Trust Limited and another – acting for the BBC in proceedings concerning the amendment power
  • Ove Arup & Partners v Trustees of the Arup UK Pension Scheme – acting for Arup in proceedings concerning the pension increase rules
  • Thales UK Ltd v Thales Pension Trustees Ltd & Ors – active for Thales in proceedings concerning the revaluation and pension increase rules
