We handle all kinds of contentious pensions matters including regulatory investigations, professional negligence claims, commercial litigation and Part 8 applications. We are experienced across all industry sectors and provide integrated specialist advice from other areas of the firm, including our tax, employment and public law teams. 

We have a unique combination of technical pensions expertise and market-leading dispute experience and draw on this to build the most appropriate team for any individual matter, and for each stage of a matter. This combination of skills enables us to identify and advance technical arguments for our clients whilst also deploying robust approaches to the strategic management, development and resolution of a case or application.

Whilst we are routinely instructed on High Court cases, we have a track record of settling cases by means of alternative dispute resolution. We deliver creative and cost-effective resolutions through ADR, which is a pivotal feature of our dispute resolution brand. These options include mediation, expert determination and adjudication. We are also able to avail of the wider disputes function to provide leading dispute management capabilities, ranging from in house advocacy to specialised teams for complex and resource-heavy disputes and regulatory investigations.
