You could be a pensions trustee... or an HR director or pensions manager in the public or private sector.
If you are, then you're in good company at Wragge & Co. Our Pensions team advises about 250 pensions clients. Twenty are listed on the FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 with assets ranging from £5 million to £6.75 billion. Eight of our trustee clients manage schemes with assets over £1 billion. Some of those clients have been advised by us for as long as 15 years and one of our partners is a trustee to a £13 billion pension scheme.
Praised in Legal 500 2011 for its "focus on delivering pragmatic and cost-effective advice that is solution focused", the team's "service is excellent, knowledge and experience is first rate, and work is completed on target". Chambers UK 2012 ranked the team for Client Service, "they have a unique philosophy, they put themselves in their clients' shoes and give client-focused advice".
For clients and non-clients in this sector we host a series of workshops, focused discussion groups, seminars and bespoke training. The most recent event looked at the Companies Act 2006 and its impact on employers' responsibilities, trustee companies and trustee indemnities.
In the increasingly commercial environment for pension schemes, Wragge & Co's pensions clients benefit from access to a full range of legal services including banking and finance, corporate and tax. Our Combined Human Resources Solutions team offers ground-breaking advice and support on the overlap between pensions and employment issues.
The Pensions team - which takes an active role in the National Association of Pensions Funds, Society of Pensions Consultants and Association of Pension Lawyers - keeps a daily check on legal developments and issues regular and timely alerts on topical pensions developments.
