My Expertise

I advise trustees, sponsors, government bodies and providers with expertise in the retail, energy, nuclear, transport, public and charitable sectors on the full range of pensions issues, both contentious and non-contentious.

Read more about me

I advise on a variety of schemes from large multi-employer industry-wide pension schemes with several hundred employers to single employer schemes with liabilities ranging from £5m to over £1bn.  I  have particular expertise in  restructuring and PPF matters (recently appointed to the PPF Assessment Period Legal Panel), dispute resolution (from Ombudsman complaints to high profile High Court proceedings such as the prominent Massey Ferguson case), employer covenant and funding issues,  regulatory matters such as clearance applications, benefit redesign, consultation and mergers and acquisitions.

I was noted as a "good all-round lawyer who gives good commercial advice" in Chambers and Partners (2013).
