Accountants, pensions and actuaries

Our team acts for accountancy firms, pensions professionals and actuaries. Count on us to resolve disputes of any complexity - cost-effectively.

With lawyers based in London, Bristol, Hong Kong and Singapore, we specialise in providing risk management advice and defending negligence claims against accountancy firms of all sizes, auditors, actuaries and people working across the pensions sector.

We can also help if you need to respond to complaints and proceedings before regulatory bodies such as the Financial Reporting Council (FRC), Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) and the Pensions Ombudsman.

Where we need to work alongside lawyers in other jurisdictions, we are part of the TerraLex network and have access to over 150 law firms in 100 jurisdictions across the globe.
