Within: Pensions

The Pitmans LLP team possesses considerable experience in benefit restructuring cases, while also having a niche specialism in creating self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs), small self-administered schemes (SSASs) and other executive arrangements, drafting master trusts, and buy-in and buy-out projects. David Hosford heads the team and deals with all areas of non-contentious pensions law, including reorganisations, scheme mergers, and restructuring and general compliance advice. Hosford recently advised the Hitek DB Pension Scheme Trustees on a proposed flexible apportionment arrangement and advised the Trustees of the Eason & Son (NI) Superannuation Fund regarding the employer’s proposal to pay enhanced transfer values. Symon Rowley left the practice to join DWF.
