Testimonials

‘Their strengths are their knowledge of the industry, expertise in their field, keeping up to date with emerging topics/issues and are quick to advise on them. They are proactive in bringing important issues to the table. They have good engagement with the company and the Trustees and are responsive, professional, and pragmatic in approach.’

‘They demonstrate a good knowledge of the law. They are responsive and there’s never a delay in responding to queries – they always seem to be available and respond quickly to requests. The associate we work with is very competent which gives a sense of comfort of not been overly reliant on one person.’

‘We have some very complex issues and have always found their advice to be very pragmatic, helpful, clear and commercial. I would recommend them to any trustee board or company.’

‘The trustee uses Arthur Cox’s pensions team, comprising Philip Smith and senior associate Sarah McCague, on legal and member matters pertaining to the scheme. They are ably supported by the wider pensions team. The key requirement is to provide clear and pragmatic advice which focuses on clear and commercial solutions, often on highly complex and historical issues which arise in a scheme such as ours, in a timely manner.  The importance of this service is highly valued.’
