Clyde & Co has appointed Terry Saeedi and Matthew Ambler to its pensions team as partner and senior associate.
Saeedi (pictured above) and Ambler (pictured below) join the firm from law firm Gordons, where they were head of pensions and a pensions solicitor respectively.
The duo have worked together for almost 10 years across multiple organisations, and will work from the firm's Leeds office for a variety of employer and trustee clients across the country.
Ambler will join the firm on 3 April while Saeedi starts on 1 May.
Pensions partner Mark Howard welcomed Saeedi's previous experience.
"Terry is a very welcome addition to our growing pensions team and will support the demand for more innovative services in the defined benefit and the growing defined contribution space," he said.
"Her expertise will further strengthen our pensions law offering across the UK."
Saeedi added: "I am delighted to be joining a firm and a team with such a strong reputation and brand," she said. "I am looking forward to working with the Clyde pensions team and with Mark to develop our services to our clients further, and in playing a part in the team's continued growth."
Saeedi had worked at Gordons since 2013, joining from Eversheds where she was a partner from 2008 to 2013. Prior to that, she was a partner at Hammonds from 1997.
Ambler began working with Saeedi as a senior associate at Eversheds in 2008, then moved to Gordons with her in 2013. From 1999 to 2008, he was a pensions associate at Pinsent Masons.
