Charles Crowne and director Katherine King handle claims in the pension space, frequently working alongside pensions specialist Paul Matthews. The practice has a sizeable construction disputes team, with Rob Horne and associate director Rob Adjetey particularly prominent in this area. Tom Ellis leads the overall practice from London.
