Practice Areas

Philippa acts for both corporate clients and trustee boards on the whole ambit of pensions-related matters. She has particular expertise in relation to topical de-risking projects, such as pension increase exchange offers and enhanced transfer value exercises where she has recently advised both the corporate sponsor and trustee boards.

Philippa’s practice is broad, spanning negotiations with sponsors on trustee project work, drafting scheme documentation, advising on scheme mergers and demergers, negotiating public to private sector outsourcing contracts and providing advice on regulatory matters and investigations involving the Pensions Regulator.

As well as providing corporate strategy advice to corporate clients, Philippa frequently advises on the UK pensions aspects of large international corporate acquisitions, disposals and group reorganisations and plays a pivotal role in the Sackers team that provides transactional support services to other law firms.
