In their words
“Hard as it may be to believe, there really never is a dull moment in pensions! The last 20 years have transformed pensions law into a highly regulated and complex specialism, and the pace of change shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. This creates challenges and opportunities for trustees and employers alike, and I enjoy helping my clients navigate through the legal and technical complexities as smoothly and successfully as possible. I want my clients to feel that I am genuinely part of their team, whether for key strategic projects or routine day-to-day queries, and that I understand their needs.”
