What we do: Pensions Law Services

Our approach

In a personal or business context, pensions are just one issue on the agenda.  Accordingly, we are pleased to work with other parties and advisers involved, such as the employer, trustees, actuary, consultant or covenant adviser to ensure that there is no duplication of effort and that delivery of the service is as efficient as possible.  In all aspects of our work we keep in touch with the key parties involved to ensure everyone is up to date with progress.

who do we work with?

We are pleased to work with a wide variety of clients from many different sectors, ranging from private businesses to not-for-profit organisations to public sector bodies.  

We work with a variety of other professionals, often providing specialist pensions law support to profesisonal firms such as lawyers and accountants.  We are happy to work with our clients' existing teams, or undertake specialist assignments, depending on our clients' needs.

General overview of services

The firm’s core area of expertise is in providing advice to trustees and employers in relation to defined benefit (final salary) pension schemes both in Scotland and across the United Kingdom.

We are pleased to provide general ongoing advice, or advice in relation to a particular project or transaction.  We have a particular focus on commercial matters such as liability management, benefit alterations and issues arising out of corporate transactions such as sales or mergers.

In addition to our core expertise, we advise on pensions law matters generally and also undertake independent trustee appointments either on a project basis or as an ongoing appointment.
