International retirement benefits

As organizations become increasingly international in nature, there are more and more issues that need to be considered when choosing how to enter and operate within multiple jurisdictions.

Providing employees with non-salary, post-working life benefits, and the financial means by which to retire, is becoming increasingly significant, particularly as life expectancy and regulations increase, and the proportion of retirement income likely to be provided by the state decreases. The working pattern of internationally mobile employees can make it even harder to acquire retirement wealth in traditional ways – which can in turn adversely affect corporate succession planning.

It has never been more important to work with a legal partner who understands the issues you are likely to face and has the breadth of experience to guide you.

An experienced international retirement benefits legal team

We go beyond simply advising on the law. We are actively involved with some of the most influential industry organizations in this area, including PensionsEurope, the International Pension and Employee Benefits Lawyers Association (IPEBLA) and the European Insurance and Occupation Pensions Authority (EIOPA). This keeps us actively involved in shaping pensions law and policy, rather than simply reacting to it. This, in turn, helps us to ensure both we and you are ahead of the curve.

Our collective legal experience, our global project management and our influence at national and international policy levels means that we are able to future-proof our advice and help you better prepare for, and manage, your obligations and risks in this evolving area.
