Pensions experience in the education sector

Our education pensions team is well renowned in the sector. Our high quality technical advice, sector knowledge and focus on client relationships, is what sets us apart from other law firms.

We know and understand the main schemes operating in the education sector, including the Local Government Pensions Scheme, the NHS Pensions Scheme, the Teachers Pensions Scheme, the Universities Superannuation Scheme, the Local Government Pensions scheme as well as self administered trusts. This provides invaluable knowledge that improves the efficiency of our service and enables us to provide advice that is cost effective and prompt.

We cover the full range of legal issues, including:

  • Advising on day-to-day governance issues.
  • Auto enrolment.
  • Scheme change.
  • Closures and wind-ups.
  • Negotiations on funding.
  • All investment matters.
  • Dealing with regulatory bodies including the Pensions Regulator and the Pension Protection Fund.
  • International pensions matters.
  • Pensions aspects of corporate transactions, mergers of education institutions, incorporations, restructurings and outsourcings of services.

Our team has class leading experience of all types of dispute resolution, including investigations by the Pensions Ombudsman. We have advised on most of the leading pensions cases over the last 20 years, including the Houldsworth v Bridge Trustees and ITS v Hope cases.
