Ian’s expertise

Ian is experienced in advising corporates, trustees and providers on the full spectrum of pensions law issues.

About Ian

Ian heads up our Pension team. Prior to re-training as a solicitor, having graduated in archaeology, Ian initially spent several months excavating a cave in northern Spain before joining a graduate scheme with KPMG and then later working for Merrill Lynch for a number of years.  

Ian works closely with the firm’s corporate teams, advising on the pension aspects of corporate transactions and restructurings.

He has particular experience of advising on the use of insurance contracts in relation to pension schemes, including drafting, reviewing and negotiating bulk annuity contracts on buy-outs and buy-ins (including those medically underwritten) for both trustee and insurer clients; and advising on trustee liability insurance (including run-off cover).

Ian is  especially known for his expertise in relation to executive pension schemes (SSASs, SIPPs, EFRBS), having advised numerous providers of such schemes during his career, and for his knowledge and network of connections in the international and offshore pensions markets, an area where he is recognised as an industry leader.

What others say about Ian

The Legal 500 2017 describes Ian's approach as a ‘game changer’. Ian is 'developing his place in the local market through excellent client relationships; he is sensible and extremely well received by all sides of the negotiating table'.

Ian has an impressive understanding of pensions law whilst always being mindful of the bigger picture and commercial realities. This means he consistently gives pragmatic and commercially relevant advice which is delivered in plain English. In addition, his extensive network of fellow pensions professionals means that he is able to bring in the appropriate expertise to achieve panoptic solutions.
