Brodies' highly knowledgeable pensions team offers advice from specialists with many years' dedicated experience in this area of the law and comprises solicitors who are dual qualified in Scots and English law - several with City experience.

The team advises trustees, employers and pension providers on a wide variety of pension issues. We work closely with Brodies solicitors in the corporate, banking, restructuring & insolvency, litigation and employment teams to ensure our clients receive advice that is relevant, high quality and tailored to their individual needs.

We advise clients in the private, public and not for profit sectors and this experience has given us an invaluable sector-specific understanding of the impact of pension issues and how pension provision is delivered.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Auto enrolment
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Commercial outsourcing
  • Insolvency and corporate restructuring & PPF entry
  • Product and benefit design
  • Liability limitation, including putting in place PPF contingent assets
  • Dispute resolution and litigation
  • Scheme changes and closure
  • Scheme funding, including innovative Scottish limited partnership funding arrangements
  • Advice on public sector pension schemes

Brodies' pensions team recognises the relationship between the pension scheme and the business that supports it. We focus on delivering integrated and pragmatic advice and providing workable solutions for employers and trustees.

The team has expanded significantly in recent years in response to client demand and Brodies has been commended in the leading independent legal directory Chambers & Partners for "growing a pensions practice which will be the envy of many in a few years…".

We would welcome the opportunity to work with you to find solutions to your pension issues. To find out more, please contact Juliet Bayne.
