Will Sutton’s CPDcasts

Will is an official CPDcast contributor and contributes to the following podcasts:



Will has a broad range of in depth experience of the numerous issues that can arise for UK based pension schemes. He has been consistently listed as an "Associate to Watch" in Chambers UK Client's Guide to the UK Legal Profession and the Legal 500. He is described by clients in those publications as providing "high-quality support" and "clear and concise advice" as well as being "personable and proactive" with "an ability to gain the trust of trustees and employers alike".

His work has involved providing advice to pension scheme trustees and employers including detailed advice in relation to the tax regime, age discrimination, funding and investments, scheme mergers, scheme closure, liability management, employer debt, buy ins/buy outs and automatic enrolment. In addition to this, Will is actively involved in trustee training.

Will is also heavily involved in advising companies on the pension’s aspects of the sale and purchase of companies or businesses and has dealt with the full range of issues that can arise in such transactions. This often includes acting for suppliers in public sector outsourcing projects which involve the full range of private to public sector pension issues.

As well as his legal role, Will is involved in his department's independent pension trustee companies. He therefore has experience of the decisions that trustees need to make as well as practical knowledge of the day to day administration involved in running ongoing schemes, and schemes which are winding up (including those qualified for the Financial Assistance Scheme or the Pension Protection Fund).
