Victoria is a partner with extensive experience working with UK occupational pension schemes, private pension plans and public sector schemes.

She works with trustees and employers of private pension schemes to navigate through all aspects of pensions law, varying from one-off governance queries through to being parachuted in to assist in negotiating a package of support to trustees linked to a corporate restructuring. She looks for creative, cost-effective solutions for her clients, presenting advice in unique and easy-to-digest formats.

Victoria has expertise in advising corporates and administering authorities on all aspects of public sector pension schemes, including the application of Fair Deal from the perspectives of both local authorities and contractors, as well as governance, compliance and risk management.

She has been recognised by The Legal 500 as a Next Generation Partner − Pensions, and by Chambers UK as Up and Coming.
