Employment & Pensions


Our advocates provide sound legal advice on all employment law issues, whether litigious or non-litigious. We also work with companies and corporations to create tailor-made contracts, policies and HR procedures for their employees. We have advised on matters ranging from redundancy issues, to corporate governance, disciplinary and grievance issues.

We act mainly for employers including large public and private companies, SMEs and Non-profit entities. Our team is well versed with the retirement benefits legislation and has advised several pension schemes, administrators and scheme insolvency practitioners on various aspects of the law under the Retirement Benefits Act. We review trust deeds and rules for schemes as well as contracts for the various service providers.

The Firm is currently also on the panel of advocates for the regulatory body in the industry, the Retirement Benefits Authority, where we have represented the Authority on various civil actions before the Retirement Benefits Tribunal and the High Court.
