Burges Salmon Pensions team shortlisted in UK Pensions Awards 2020

Posted: 23rd March 2020

The firm has been nominated in the category ‘Pensions Lawyers of the Year’ at the 2020 UK Pensions Awards.

The Pensions team at Burges Salmon has been shortlisted for ‘Pensions Lawyers of the Year’ at Professional Pensions’ UK Pensions Awards 2020.

The prestigious awards recognise the highest levels of innovation, performance and service provided by advisers, providers and investment managers for occupational pension schemes and their members.

The team’s shortlisting is testament to its work advising on both complex and commonplace legal issues for Burges Salmon’s clients and its commitment to establishing innovative and efficient ways of responding to the changing market.

Over the past year, the Pensions practice has continued to operate at the cutting edge of pensions regulation and 2019 saw the team acting on some of tPR’s biggest ongoing regulatory actions.

Burges Salmon partner Richard Knight, who heads up the firm’s Pensions practice, comments: “We’re a forward-thinking team, operating nationwide as well as internationally, and we’re committed to continuous improvement and to innovating where possible to ensure we deliver exceptional client service.

“It’s fantastic that these efforts and the successes of the practice in the past year have been recognised by the shortlisting in the UK Pensions Awards.”

The winners of the UK Pensions Awards 2020 will be revealed at a celebratory event, due to take place in September in London.
