Our internal Know-how is recognised by Chambers UK as "second to none" and "the firm is also praised for keeping clients informed on latest pension developments." Our Know-how team works hard to fulfil the important roles of keeping both clients and Sackers' own lawyers informed of legal developments in the fast changing world of pensions.
Managing our expertise
Our service to clients is improved by our collegiate and open-door culture and a willingness within the firm to share expertise. With 50 pensions experts providing an unrivalled resource and a combined experience of over 500 years, there is very little that is new to us at Sackers.
It is the job of the Know-how team to:
- ensure that collective expertise is harnessed in order to resolve issues for clients more speedily and more cost effectively;
- provide seamless access to information within the firm - both for new legal developments as well as old chestnuts!; and
- act as a centre of excellence providing research and a second opinion on legal matters for both partners and junior lawyers alike.
Each of the lawyers in the Know-how team has practised as a client-facing lawyer, so are well versed in the challenges presented in the practical application of key legal developments.
Keeping up-to-date with legal developments in pensions and translating them into practical reality can be both daunting and time consuming. The Know-how team are instrumental in producing our comprehensive added value programme, Sackers Extra which is designed to help our clients stay on top of developments.
In addition, Claire Carey , the head of the Know-how team and Director of Professional Development, personally delivers our very well attended quarterly breakfast seminars.
We take our in-house training programme very seriously. The programme, run by the Know-how team, ensures that knowledge is widely shared across the firm for the benefit of all our clients.
There is a dedicated programme for more junior lawyers to ensure they are well grounded in all the building blocks of pensions law and practice as well as weekly training sessions for the whole firm.
The Know-how team also helps to facilitate preparation and, in some cases, delivery of bespoke trustee training .
