CMS crowned Pensions Law Firm of the Year

19 July 2021

International law firm CMS is pleased to announce that it has been named “Pensions Law Firm of the Year” at the Pensions Age Awards 2021. These awards recognise the pensions schemes and providers across the UK that have demonstrated excellence in these increasingly challenging economic times. 

The firm was recognised for its market-leading work in the pensions sector over the last 12 months. The Pensions team’s successes include advising the Deutsche Bank UK Pension Scheme Trustees on a £570 million pensioner buy-in transaction with Legal & General Assurance Society Limited, advising Atos on the successful merger of three schemes into a new £1 billion pension scheme and an additional merger of a multi-billion pound scheme into the newly established scheme, and advising the principal employer of the AIB Group UK Pension Scheme on the first use of an APP solution within a de-risking transaction.

Mark Grant, Head of Pensions at CMS, comments: “We believe that this is the first time that a UK law firm currently holds all three of the pensions-related awards available in our industry. It demonstrates the market-leading position we have managed to attain through hard work, innovation and strategic expansions via our Manchester and Edinburgh offices.”

Along with Pensions Age’s “Pensions Law Firm of the Year” for 2021, CMS was also crowned “Pensions Law Firm of the Year” at the Pensions and Investment Provider Awards 2020 and “Pensions Lawyers of the Year” at the Professional Pensions UK Pensions Awards 2020.
