Pension disputes

The complex and historic nature of UK Pensions law invariably results in disputes. We use our expertise and insight to provide sensible solutions in all kinds of situations.

Our Pensions & Employee Benefits team advises on all types of pension disputes – ranging from initial complaints under a pension scheme’s Internal Dispute Resolution Procedure (“IDRP”) to matters heard by the Pensions Ombudsman or in the High Court.

We understand that pension provision can be an emotive issue for members. Disputes can arise over the interpretation of documents, drafting errors, contractual obligations or failure to adhere to policy documents and legislation. That’s why we combine technical expertise and commercial thinking to offer sensible and thoughtful solutions that perfectly match our clients’ needs.

Avoiding costly litigation is a priority . We help corporate sponsors and trustees mitigate this through a combination of pragmatic advice, skilled negotiation and careful communication.

We also have experience of various different dispute resolution forums that seek to avoid matters ending up in the Courts.
