Hogan Lovells has made Faye Jarvis and Matthew Bullen partners in the law firm's annual round of promotions.
Jarvis has been a pensions lawyer at the company for several years, and was elevated to of counsel last January in the firm's London pensions team.
She advises trustees on medically underwritten buyouts, liability management exercises and asset-backed funding arrangements. She also advises employers on pension liability apportionment arrangements in connection with corporate transactions. Jarvis advised the trustees of the industry-wide Coal Schemes on a debt for equity swap with UK Coal, and on a subsequent restructuring of UK Coal that resulted in its sections of the schemes entering an assessment period with the Pension Protection Fund (PPF).
Pensions litigation specialist Bullen who is also of counsel, has been involved in major cases, most recently advising the trustee of the Nortel Networks UK Pension Plan and the PPF in relation to insolvency proceedings in the UK, Canada and the US. He has also represented ITV in the financial support directive proceedings involving Box Clever.
Their promotions to partner were announced today in Hogan Lovells' yearly set of promotions across the globe. In addition to the 24 new partners, the firm has also made 45 new appointments to the of counsel role.
