About Nigel

He advises employers, trustees, lenders, pension providers, public sector bodies and other industry participants on all aspects of pension law (including governance, funding, investment, scheme reconstruction/mergers, regulatory compliance and disputes).

Nigel has a particular specialism in private M&A work; in recent years his expertise has been sourced by City/US law firms for whom he has acted as specialist pensions counsel on complex, high value transaction mandates (including for private equity bidders in competitive auction processes and supporting sell side vendor due diligence exercises).

He also regularly advises on the pensions law aspects of investments, including investment management agreements, custody agreements, investment platform policies and the terms of pooled investment vehicles/products.
