Career Highlights

  • Devising a structure to allow a poorly funded “’orphan” ‘ scheme to successfully enter the PPF and so better secure members’ benefits
  • Negotiating and implementing a package of contingent assets comprising a guarantee and changes over multiple properties, so giving greater security and reducing the PPF levy
  • Advice to identify statutory employers and negotiating and implementing flexible apportionment arrangements, thereby facilitating a group re-organisation without any section 75 debt triggered
  • Helping scheme trustees reject the employer’s debt compromise proposal and implement a viable recovery plan, including a parent company guarantee
  • Merger of group pension schemes, including to successfully release surplus trapped in the transferring scheme
