Torys has a standout reputation advising clients on pension plan investments in Canada, with its team being highlighted for its ‘strong substantive knowledge and practical advice.’ The group advises major pension funds on both domestic and international investments, and it also provides complex strategic structuring advice.

Desribed by a client as ‘fantastic to work with‘, Susan Nickerson is a leading figure in the national market, and is regularly sought out by governments and policy makers for advice on emerging pension rules and regulations.
