CMS awarded Pensions Law Firm of the Year 2019

30 May 2019

CMS was pleased to be named “Pensions Law Firm of the Year” at the Pension and Investment Provider Awards (PIPA) 2019, held in London.

Now in its 20th year, the PIPAs recognise excellence among providers of products and services to UK workplace pension schemes. The three key criteria used to judge the awards are performance, innovation and service standards.

CMS was specifically commended for their work on the establishment of the innovative Clara Pension Scheme, which is the first commercial scheme of its kind, designed to receive and consolidate employers’ pension schemes. This was a project led by Caroline Kurup and Ashley Smith in collaboration with a team spanning most of the CMS Practice Groups.

The award was fittingly collected on stage by the Pensions team’s longest-serving member, Mark Kowalik, who is in the final month of 33 years of fee-earning work at the firm.
