Germany Pensions Disputes

We have a strong German pensions dispute resolution practice and advise all types of parties, including employers, external pension scheme providers, CTA trustees, insolvency practitioners, investment managers, and parties to corporate transactions.

Matters range from individual employee or pensioner claims through to collective claims, works council claims and claims relating to scheme funding or contributions to the Pension Protection Fund.

We frequently advise on benefit entitlements; our technical knowledge and commercial experience is tried and tested. We have good relationships with regulators, government and tax authorities, enabling us to confirm their approach and analyse our clients’ risk exposure.

In an ideal world, prevention is better than cure. We also advise on reducing the risk of successful complaints, including offering training in the areas of common difficulty. Discrimination issues remain a hot topic too.
