Pension

Pension is a complex topic involving large interests. In addition, many parties are involved: the employer, the pension fund or pension insurer, the employee or director and major shareholder, but also the pension beneficiary’s partner and possibly a pension adviser or insurance broker. Pension also has various points of interface with the law, such as employment law, liability law, family law and tax law. This requires a multidisciplinary approach.

Our lawyers regularly advise and litigate in disputes concerning, for instance, directors’ and officers’ liability for pension premiums, the scope of an industry-wide pension fund, the interpretation of pension regulations and pension entitlements wrongly not accrued or received. We also help clients amend their pension schemes. We can provide support to both employers and employees, and to industry-wide pension funds.

In cases that arise, we work closely with the client’s pension adviser.
