United Kingdom

Our award-winning pensions team is experienced in advising trustees and employers on all aspects of defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes. We also have considerable experience advising on group pensions, self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs), insurance products (including buy-in and buy-out arrangements), longevity products and other structures. Unlike other pension law practices, we also work on litigation, as this enables us to brief clients in full on any potentially contentious issues and provides a balanced approach to our advice.

We provide schemes of all sizes with clear, pragmatic and proactive advice. We do it in a way that is efficient, straight forward and friendly. We also make sure that our clients are kept up to date on the latest pensions legislation by sending a variety of regular updates, which focus on both what you need to know and, practically, what you need to do.

One message which was very clear, was the extent to which CMS were able and willing to make available considerable, high quality resource at very short notice to help the Trustee navigate through some significant challenges. This strongly and favourably differentiates CMS from some other firms.
