UK - Law firm Sacker & Partners scooped the top prize - the prestigious Golden Star Award for Excellence - at this year's UK Pensions Awards.
The firm - which received the award at a glittering gala dinner at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Monday - was cited for the pro bono work it carried out for members of the Sea-Land pension scheme.
Professional Pensions editor, Len Roberts, who was chairman of the judging panel said: “Single incidents which change the course of pension legislation were rare.
But the battle by members of the Sea-Land pension scheme with the firm’s parent, Maersk, was one such example.“Sackers gave Sea-Land members unequivocal support in their fight for a just settlement.”
