Overview

Our experienced team of specialist pension lawyers offers an extensive range of services to a wide variety of clients.

We have expert knowledge of the South African Pension Funds Act, Financial Sector Regulation Act, Financial Institutions (Protection of Funds) Act and Insurance Act as well as of the Income Tax Act.

Our services include advising industry participants on various aspects of fund governance and administration; and employers, including public sector employers, on a range of issues relating to their participation in pension funds. Our offering extends to providing training programmes as well as bespoke training courses, tailor-made to meet specific client requirements.

We pride ourselves on our independence. We have no exclusive relationship with any particular industry participants and regularly act for different stakeholders including employers, trustees, administrators, consultants, regulators and service providers. This means we enjoy established relationships throughout the retirement fund industry and have access to top specialist counsel.

All members of our South African Pension Law team are members of the Pension Lawyers Association of South Africa.

We hold regular Breakfast with Benefits Seminars that serve as an interactive platform from which we share our thoughts and experiences on pertinent issues and topical developments.
