The Pensions team from Burges Salmon has been shortlisted in the European Pensions Law Firm of the Year category at the forthcoming European Pensions Awards 2016.

Shortlisted for its innovative client service delivery and overall team performance, the Burges Salmon Pensions team – which will be eight partners strong, following the promotions of Alice Honeywill and Susannah Young in May 2016 – has been widely respected with leading clients for almost 30 years.  The team has continued to grow significantly its offering in the UK pensions sector, with a substantial proportion of its work being delivered for pan-European and international clients.

Pensions continue to remain high on the agenda both in the UK and across Europe as the industry undergoes significant changes and this, along with the team’s focus on exceptional client service, has resulted in sustained growth across its pensions client base.  In London, the Burges Salmon office continues to provide a valuable base for servicing the team’s national and international clients.

Richard Knight, head of Pensions at Burges Salmon, said: “We’ve been delighted to have been shortlisted in previous years at these distinguished awards and are once again proud to receive such recognition.  We believe our shortlisting is attributable to the recent strong growth of the team and positive and progressive rise in both the quantity and quality of the work we are undertaking for clients.

“Our 40 pensions lawyers now act for a national and international client base comprising more than 750 trustee and employer clients across the private and public sectors.”

Organised by European Pensions Magazine and now in their ninth year, the European Pensions Awards recognise outstanding achievements in the varied fields of European pension provision, honouring the investment firms, consultancies and pension providers across Europe that have set the professional standards in order to best serve European pension funds in these increasingly challenging times.

The awards are independently judged and the winners will be announced at an annual gala dinner on 23 June 2016 at The Millennium Hotel, London Mayfair.
