Sarah heads up the firm’s pensions team, having spent thirteen years working in the City at Clifford Chance and specialist pensions firm Sacker & Partners.  She has extensive experience in this area and is ranked as a leading practitioner by Chambers.    

Clients, intermediaries and the legal directories describe Sarah as “approachable and professional” (Legal 500), "a world-class pensions lawyer" and "very knowledgeable, very experienced and commercial in her advice” (Chambers).

Sarah regularly provides strategic advice to clients on funding issues (including asset backed contribution arrangements), restructuring and liability management exercises, and the pensions aspects of corporate transactions.  She also advises clients on disputes, ranging from complaints under a scheme’s IDRP, to Pensions Ombudsman claims and English High Court or Court of Session proceedings. 

Because she advises both company and trustee clients, Sarah has experience and awareness of both perspectives in running a pension scheme.  She is therefore able to provide highly commercial and focused advice in reaching solutions for her clients.  

Sarah is qualified in both Scots law and English law.
