We work collaboratively with HR departments and directors on the management of auto-enrolment obligations, restructuring the benefits for workplace pensions, scheme mergers, reconstructions and terminations, as well as leading on pensions disputes and litigation. Many of our pensions experts hold pension trustee appointments as well as having been recognised for their extensive knowledge through the publication of articles and books.
