Brabners makes senior hire to lead pensions practice

Brabners makes senior hire to lead pensions practice

Monday 30th January 2017

Commercial law firm Brabners has appointed partner Ian Mylrea to head up the firm’s national pensions practice.

With more than nine years’ experience, Ian has spent his career specialising in pensions law at national and international firms including DLA Piper. Prior to this, he worked in-house for the accountancy firm KPMG and as a professional trustee at Merrill Lynch.

Ian advises corporates, trustees, providers and insurers on both contentious and non-contentious pensions matters, including corporate M&A, employer debt issues, funding negotiations and pensions litigation. He also has significant expertise in executive and off-shore pension schemes, such as SIPPs, EFRBS and QROPS.

Ian said: “Brabners has a well-established pensions practice and I’m looking forward to working with the team as we build on this together and continue to provide a high-quality service to a range of clients, both in the North West and further afield.

“The practice regularly receives a large number of internal referrals, particularly from the firm’s corporate team, which is one of the most active in the region, and this is creating greater demand for specialist pensions advice. More widely, increased regulation and public interest in corporate pensions continues to raise awareness of the legal responsibilities regarding pensions among businesses, and this will help drive future growth.”

Mark Brandwood, managing partner at Brabners, added: “Ian is highly regarded in the pensions sector and his experience of working across both the legal and corporate spheres make him the ideal candidate to lead the growth of our pensions division.

“Having worked at major corporates and gained hands-on experience of managing a pension scheme, he has a keen understanding of the clients’ perspective. This will be invaluable and ensure our pensions team continues to deliver the highest quality service to clients.”

Brabners’ pensions practice is part the firm’s employment team, one of the largest in the North West.
