Description

PENSIONS LAWYER – LONDON

Brief

We are currently looking to recruit a Pensions Lawyer from 2 – 5 years PQE to join the London pensions team.

The Team

The Pinsent Masons pensions team is one of the strongest pensions teams in the UK.

Spanning our offices in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh and Glasgow, we have over 70 highly trained lawyers, paralegals and independent trustee administrators. We are dedicated to providing clear, practical, cost-effective advice for our clients, which include large global corporations, pension fund trustees, public authorities, insurance companies and other financial institutions.

Legal directories such as Legal 500 and Chambers consistently rate us as a leading pensions team in London, the West Midlands, the North, and in Scotland. Incorporating a market-leading pensions litigation practice and an in-house independent trustee company, no pensions team has a greater breadth of expertise and we have successfully future-proofed our practice by extending our work into areas that are outside of the traditional comfort zone for pension lawyers – examples of this being our high profile work for pension providers and our ground-breaking work in relation to pension fund investment in infrastructure. In addition as part of a firm with an impressive full-service capability, we are able to deal with every type of pensions issue, no matter what other areas it may touch upon.

An ambitious team which is continuing to grow, we have a high profile within Pinsent Masons and across the pensions market. We are the only pensions team to have won awards for innovation, having won FT Innovative Lawyer Awards in 2015 and 2016.

The Candidate Required

The ideal candidate will have gained experience in the pensions department of a City firm or large regional practice.

Candidates need to combine technical excellence with plenty of common sense and the ability to develop good relationships with colleagues and clients. Equally important, they should be commercially aware and should be enthusiastic about business development, with proven experience of face to face client development and networking.
