Henry DayRadcliffe ChambersBrings clear analysis to complex problems and consistently very responsive. Very approachable and friendly, with a good sense of humour, which was of great assistance during a complex and sometimes tense matter.

Radcliffe Chambers, summarised as an ‘excellent set for pensions and advice‘, incorporates the talents of ‘superstarsKeith Rowley QC and Elizabeth Ovey. Highlights include the retention of Airways Pension Scheme Trustees Ltd v Fielder and British Airways plc, a matter concerning discretionary increases above CPI (and supported by distinguished junior Henry Day), Lloyds Banking Group Pensions Trustees Ltd. v Lloyds Bank plc & Ors (an issue focused on the under-calculation of an outgoing member’s transfer payments) and representing the defendant in Mitchells & Butlers Pensions Ltd v Mitchells & Butlers Plc (a disputatious ‘rectification of deeds’ case). Wendy Mathers is seen as ‘a real up-and-coming junior who will fight hard for clients‘.
