About Us

Our partnership represents a new and growing generation of UK law firms which provide succinct and practical advice without any of the expensive trappings. Fresh in our approach but mature in our advice, we've got the expertise to handle the difficult and most complex jobs combined with a delivery that's quick and to the point.

We live and breathe pensions all day, every day, so our clients can be certain of receiving up-to-date and detailed advice. Of course, we also have significant specialist back-up and know-how in respect of pensions law including daily legislative updates and a well-stocked library.

These are the qualities we offer in our service.

There's rarely a standard solution to any pensions situation. So we don't provide 'product-based' pensions advice.
Instead we take each client assignment and manage it on a bespoke and tailored basis. Our experience, gained over many years, of advising on every possible pensions situation means we apply exactly the right touch depending on the circumstances.

Because of our flexibility, clients can be sure of receiving the right type of advice in the right way at the right time.

We take great pride in what we do and have professional and commercial reasons to protect, preserve and build on our reputation for delivering the highest quality advice. Our clients receive the very best care and attention. Your work will be handled by us and not passed on to juniors.

Working with Pension Partners means you can expect professional, friendly and courteous advice. The majority of our work is introduced to us through client recommendations and referrals from our clients’ actuaries and accountants.

Between us we offer over 45 years of pensions knowledge and experience gained in international and City law firms. Many clients have stayed with us for a number of years (even moving with us when we've moved firms!).

To see our extensive experience relating to any problem-solving on occupational pension schemes, take a look at our Case studies.

As business owners ourselves we appreciate the value of commercial advice.  We see the world from your point of view so our legal advice is delivered in that context. In other words, we provide realistic pensions advice.

Technology allows all business to work in new and more efficient ways. With that in mind, we've pared down the business infrastructure to the bare essentials meaning you pay for what you get - the highest quality advice and a personal service. What you don't pay for are the 'trappings' attached to the normal commercial law firm service.

The quality of our advice is extremely important to us on behalf of our clients and the pensions industry. As we are running our own business, we are judged on the quality of the services we provide and the success of our firm is linked directly to this. Accordingly we have both professional and commercial reasons to protect, preserve and build on our reputation for delivering the highest quality pensions law advice.

With a boutique law firm you get that something extra - a personal service from someone who knows you and your issues.
That's our approach at Pension Partners.

Your talk did a lot to help our firm’s reputation in this sector. – head of a leading team of solicitors specialising in further and higher education
