The Hugh James employment law team regularly provides pension and employee benefits support to our commercial and corporate legal teams when advising on corporate financing, asset purchases, outsourcing matters and corporate dissolutions.
Pension specialist Louise Price leads our employment team in relation to pensions and employee benefits work and is a member of the Association of Pension Lawyers.
We regularly advise in relation to:
- proposals to reduce pension benefits and the closure of final salary pension schemes;
- internal dispute procedures;
- consultation with employees regarding future benefit changes;
- share option and incentive schemes (including EMI).
We have the pension legal expertise to also advise clients on the introduction of auto-enrolment and NEST.
Hugh James also has a specialist financial services team who can also assist in the establishment of new pension schemes.
The client base that we work for is extremely varied. We regularly act for employers from local authorities, public sector organisations and housing associations although we also represent high net worth individuals. We are highly regarded and renowned for our level of expertise in matters relating to pension and employment law.
