Pension Law

Pension Law

Sarah Phillips
Our pensions team is one of the largest and strongest in Scotland, and has established a UK-wide reputation. Distinctive in the pensions world for our dynamic and accessible approach, our aim is simple: to provide responsive, client-friendly and practical legal advice.

“Service is excellent, timely, committed, astute and commercial.” (Legal 500)

Our approach is collaborative; we become part of our client’s team, and we recognise that every pension scheme and every client is different.  We give strategic advice as well as technical legal input - providing our view on options and tactics to achieve our clients’ objectives.

“The team is straightforward to deal with, practical and doesn’t get bogged down with arcane arguments.” (Chambers UK)

We service a truly impressive range of clients on a wide array of pensions matters both contentious and non-contentious.  Our clients range from trustee boards and pensions professionals to owner-managed businesses and multi-national corporations, local authorities and not for profit / charitable organisations, pension providers and individuals.

This diversity of practice and depth of experience enables us to consider issues from different perspectives and to focus on finding workable commercial solutions to fit our clients’ needs.  Clients applaud our practical and straightforward advice and our “seamless service”.

Our services include:

  • project-specific or continuing provision of legal advice to employers, trustees, insurance companies, local authorities and not for profit / charitable organisations;
  • document reviews;
  • bespoke trustee training; and
  • independent trustee services through our trustee company, Burness Paull Pension Trustees Limited.

We work hard and we enjoy what we do.  That’s a powerful combination.
