My Expertise

I have particular experience in pensions and insolvency/restructuring and the PPF. I also have experience in litigation from internal disputes up to the Court of Justice of the EU.

Read more about me

I have advised the PPF on some of its highest profile and most complex matters, including the Levy, GMPs and the compensation cap. I have significant experience of pensions-related restructurings, including pre-packs and regulated apportionment arrangements, having acted on many of the high-profile insolvency/restructuring cases involving pensions in the last 10 years.

I have acted on significant contentious matters, including High Court and Court of Appeal cases and am currently acting on a reference to the Court of Justice of the EU.  I have acted on a number of cases involving construction/rectification, professional negligence and on ombudsman claims.

I am also experienced in handling scheme mergers (both pooled and sectionalised) and on complex funding structures, including over-funding protection ("escrow-like" arrangements) and ABC arrangements. 

I have also been involved in PFI outsourcing and all its derivative forms since 2000, when the very first transactions which allowed participation by external contractors in the Local Government Pension Scheme were negotiated and have experience of a range of public sector (and privatised industry) schemes.
