Practice notes

Julia is a principal associate in our pensions team. She has extensive experience, advising pension scheme trustees, companies and insurers on all aspects of pensions law. In recent years, Julia has worked on a diverse range of matters such as scheme funding (including escrow arrangements), changing pension benefits, insolvent restructurings, “buy ins” and “buy outs” and scheme mergers. Her advisory work often involves highly technical questions, such as pensions tax, preservation and anti-franking issues. She also advises on day-to-day issues such as scheme governance, scheme investment, member communications and member disputes, and she has a great deal of experience of advising on the pensions aspects of both UK and cross-border corporate transactions.
