Sacker & Partners LLP

'First-class boutique' Sacker & Partners LLP is 'incredibly strong for all types of pensions work'. Ian Pittaway and Peter Murphy lead the non-contentious and contentious practices respectively; Mark Greenlees and defined contribution scheme expert Helen Ball are also names to note. The group's contentious work includes representing the trustees of the HSBC Bank UK Pension Scheme in multiple member complaints and acting for the trustees of the Carillion Pension Scheme in the inquiry and regulator investigation relating to anti-avoidance powers regarding the company's insolvency. Non-contentious highlights include advising the trustees of the Express Pension Scheme and the Arla Foods Pension Scheme on the scheme merger which used an asset-backed contribution structure to equalise funding levels, assisting EDS Trustee with the spin-off of the enterprise services division from Hewlett Packard Enterprises to DXC, and acting for Meredith on the pensions aspects of its $2.8bn offer for Time. The National Grid Pension Scheme, Royal Mail Pension Plan and the TfL Pension Fund are also clients. Ralph McClelland, Lucy Dunbar and Jacqui Reid all made partner in 2018.
