Pensions in Dispute


  Helen Powell

PSL Counsel


Helen joined Allen & Overy in 2006 as a professional support lawyer in the pensions team, with a significant role in keeping our award-winning team and its clients on top of constant legal and regulatory change. In her previous role as a fee-earner at another international firm, she undertook a wide range of scheme advisory and transactional work. This included significant involvement in the privatisation of British Rail and in subsequent landmark pensions litigation.

As PSL Counsel to the London Pensions team, Helen continues to undertake client advisory work alongside her know-how role. She also co-ordinates our cross-jurisdiction Global Pensions Practice, which brings together lawyers with pensions expertise from our offices around the world, as well as our cross-practice Pension Risk Group which offers sponsors, trustees and providers a seamless approach to all aspects of de-risking defined benefit pension schemes.
