The subject of pensions is of great importance in society and our established practice regularly assists domestic and international clients with their strategic pension matters.
Working as an interdisciplinary team, we advise employers, pension funds and insurers both on their day-to-day pension activities and on strategic projects, such as the setting up, restructuring, merger or liquidation of pension funds. We also frequently manage the pensions aspect of acquisitions and divestments of businesses, outsourcing, collective dismissals, corporate transactions, severance packages and so-called golden handshakes.
High profile pension litigation is an important part of our practice. Given the many changes in the area of pensions, we have represented several clients in creating new case law and thus achieving their business objectives.
Furthermore, we advise pension funds on their structure, corporate governance rules and directors' liabilities. We also assist clients in their discussions or negotiations with the relevant regulators.
With a global network of pensions experts, we provide clients with in-depth local pensions knowledge for all their European and international projects.
