Scheme governance and trustee support

Scheme governance and trustee support

Excellent service and legal advice from team specialising in scheme governance and trustee support and pension law delivering an amazing client experience for companies in the UK.

The role of a trustee can be onerous, and we recognise that for many clients trusteeship is not their day job.

One significant challenge - and perhaps one of the most important roles for a trustee - is ensuring the scheme is run properly, with correctly documented decisions. 

We can support you by attending trustee meetings and by project managing significant scheme events.

We will work you and your scheme secretary to ensure that the trustees' governance obligations are met. This can include all or any of the following services:

  • review or drafting trustee meeting minutes
  • review or drafting conflicts of interest policies
  • review or drafting trustee risk register
  • review or drafting internal controls documents

As part of this, we will help you draft any documents needed as part of the decisions taken. Further information about this can be found on our pension scheme documents page.

We will also work with your other advisers, including the scheme actuary and the scheme administrators. This means you will receive advice that is joined-up, and which takes account of the broader issues and not just the legal aspects.

As well as advice we can provide you with trustee training on topical issues, whether specific to the scheme or on more general matters.
