Burges Salmon is continuing the expansion of its Pensions practice through four new appointments to the team. Pensions have remained high on the agenda nationally as the industry undergoes significant changes and this, along with the team's focus on exceptional client service, has resulted in sustained growth across the firm's pensions client base.

Eve Wallace joins the team as an associate and Zoë Dhenin as a solicitor. They will be joined by two newly qualified solicitors Amy Davies and Stacey Yon in September 2014.

Eve was previously at Mayer Brown and has over nine years of experience, specialising in all aspects of pensions law.

Zoë trained at Squire Sanders before qualifying at Pitmans and has extensive experience of advising both pension scheme trustees and sponsors on a broad range of pension issues.  

Comprising 36 lawyers, the Burges Salmon Pensions team is one of the largest in the UK. The team acts for over 700 pensions clients in both private and public sector pension schemes and helps trustees with defined benefit, defined contribution and hybrid schemes. The team has advised on significant matters such as the Yell global restructuring, worth more than £2 billion, and acts for additional clients such as AT&T, First UK Bus, the Department for Education and Western Power Distribution.

Richard Knight, partner at Burges Salmon and head of the firm’s Pensions team, commented: 'We are excited to welcome four new talented members to the team. They will play a vital role in contributing to the ongoing success and growth of the firm's Pensions practice, helping us to continue providing an excellent service to our clients.'
