Our market-leading Pensions team advises on all aspects of pension provision in the workplace. We cover everything from pension fund governance and assistance in exploring novel and complex pension structures, to the provision of integrated advice on pension plan change management, cross-border pensions issues and transactional assistance on pensions issues in M&A deals.
As a global law firm with a well-established and highly-regarded international pensions capability, we offer clients both global reach and local depth.
We have specialist expertise in the UK, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain the U.S. and the UK, and also work with corporate benefits specialists across our network. We collaborate to provide our clients with expert support on a range of cross-border and international issues, including global harmonisation exercises, reorganisations, scheme restructuring and mergers. We combine excellence in advising pension funds and sponsors across individual and multiple jurisdictions with a deep understanding of the complexities our clients face, including the practical application of local and European developments.
Our experts collaborate extensively off-deal, sharing resources and know-how to enhance our efficiency and client service on-deal. This approach enables us to break new ground in funding and de-risking, and to develop new strategies to improve pension provision – see, for example, the experience highlighted on our Pension Risk Group website.
