Partner, Pensions - 5+ pqe
The leading pensions team at this national law firm acts for a mix of trustee and employer clients, as well as a number of more exotic 'niches' within pensions. The highly profitable team, which sits in corporate, is considered something of a jewel in the crown at the firm.
The firm believes that there will be considerable consolidation within the pensions legal marketplace over the next two to three years and considers that many of its less committed and smaller rivals will exit the market during that time. In contrast, it believes its strong commitment and investment in the pensions sector means that it will be a significant beneficiary of the market shake-up, gaining both market share and legal talent.
In preparation for the above, the pensions team is looking to launch a first-time London offering to support both its existing regional client base and its expanding London office. The firm will consider either an established pensions partner or a connected senior associate, perhaps blocked by lack of business case, looking to make the move to immediate partnership.
Edwards Gibson acts as an employment agency for permanent roles.
