The changing regulative and legislative landscape in the UK and around the world can often lead to pension related disputes.
Understanding the high stakes involved in pension disputes and the importance of achieving a resolution, which protects the interests of the employers, trustees and individual members is imperative. This includes providing appropriate advice in light of changes to legislation and regulations that may be relevant to you; including the additional considerations arising out of the Pensions Schemes Act 2021 and how they impact your obligations in relation to pension schemes and governance.
