Pensions law is more complex than ever for companies with an international presence, and our lawyers work to deliver practical solutions to complex problems. We are experts in a wide range of pensions law issues and advise on all sizes and structures of schemes across all industry sectors. Our involvement ranges from one-off projects to year-round management of schemes including investment, financing, disputes, employment and tax issues. Our Ius Laboris lawyers are committed to staying abreast of all developments in the field, ensuring that our clients are continually aware of the legislative changes that impact them.
Pensions law can impact on various other areas of law, which is why it makes sense for us to partner with employment lawyers who have a broad range of expertise. Our pensions lawyers within Ius Laboris work particularly with lawyers specialising in mobility, restructuring and employee compensation and benefits. It is this cross-functional expertise that makes us the go-to for many multinationals.
Our lawyers are specialists in pensions law and regularly provide legal updates, guides and notes on recent developments in the pensions industry on our website. We also hold client seminars, where we share our know-how and organise internal training events for aspiring pensions lawyers. We remain committed to being the number one advocate for our clients in all issues relating to pensions law.
The UK Government and the Pensions Regulator have been very active, introducing financial assistance, regulatory flexibilities and guidance aimed at helping employers and pension schemes to deal with the impact of COVID-19. This article provides details and a comparison with other jurisdictions.
