David has experience of a wide range of pension issues advising both employers and trustees. He is the lead partner for a number of the firm’s major defined benefit and defined contribution clients in the financial services, electricity, IT and logistics sectors. His broad practice encompasses interpretation and application of scheme documentation, mergers and demergers, scheme funding, liability management and generally helping clients to navigate their way through the increasing maze of pension regulation and legislation.
His recent work has included advising clients making changes to their pension provision, including closure to future service accrual and bulk transfers of members’ benefits, scheme funding and the Regulator’s new regime.
He also frequently advises on the pensions aspects of corporate acquisitions, disposals and reorganisations and heads up the team that provides transactional support services to other law firms.
