Maitland has expertise in all aspects of occupational pension schemes, personal pensions and other pension arrangements.
We act in substantial pension disputes, as well as advising on scheme-management issues and issues arising out of corporate transactions.
We act in cases in which insolvency or professional negligence issues have arisen, including in relation to actuaries’ negligence and in cases in which serious wrong-doing is alleged against pension scheme trustees.
Our barristers have acted in many of the major pension cases in the last 25 years, including in the High Court, the Court of Appeal and the Court of Justice of the European Union. We have also appeared in arbitrations involving pensions and oral hearings before the Pensions Ombudsman. We have considerable experience or resolving pension disputes by way of ADR, including mediation.
In addition to instructions from law firms, we are also instructed directly by professional trustees, actuaries and insurance companies.
