Associate, Pensions

The Team

The Pensions team, part of the wider Corporate practice, is a small but dynamic team led by two partners.  It is a friendly team and this opportunity has arisen due to an associate moving internally.


The team covers a full range of general pensions advisory work to employers and trustees. The workload includes drafting, governance, investment, buy-in and buy-out work, other types of risk management, master trust advice, pensions litigation and corporate support.  The team works closely with our corporate insurance team on insurance and pensions products and with our disputes practice on contentious matters.  The role will be a varied one as the team does not encourage individuals to over-specialise.  Approximately 20% of the workload is corporate support work and approximately 80% of the workload is stand alone pensions work.


The team is recognised as a leading practice by Legal 500 and Chambers.


The Role

We are currently seeking a junior associate with previous experience of advisory and corporate support to join the practice.  Experience of investment work would be an added bonus.  The role will provide the opportunity for a bright and dynamic individual to gain access to a wide range of high quality work as well as contribute to the team both technically and in developing the practice.

  • Experience of advisory and corporate support work within a recognised pensions practice
