UK - In preparation for an anticipated growth in demand for pensions lawyers, Sacker & Partners has promoted three of its associates to partners.
Helen Ball, Janet Brown and Peter Murphy were the three who received the promotion.
Ball acts for trustees and employers of large and small defined benefit and defined contribution schemes on a variety of law issues. Murphy’s expertise lies in professional negligence and members' disputes.
Ian Pittaway, senior partner, commented: “The evolving regulatory environment means the legal profession is subject to ever-increasing demands.
“This is not only in terms of complying with regulation, but also in terms the amount of merger and acquisitions and private equity transactional activity, where recent cases have shown that a company’s pension scheme can be critical to a deal.”
Helen Baker, Matthew Coggins, Zoe Lynch and David Saunders were also promoted to associate.
