Pensions team partner promotion at Burness Paull
Legal firm Burness Paull has promoted Margaret Meehan to partner in its pensions team.
Ms Meehan, who has been with the practice since 1993, has more than 25 years’ experience in pensions law. A specialist in complex advisory work for both the public and private sectors, her clients include trustee boards and professionals, owner-managed businesses and multi-national corporations, local authorities and not for profit/charitable organisations. She is also a member of the Pensions Law Subcommittee of the Law Society of Scotland.
She commented: “Taking the step up to partner, at what is a defining time for the pensions market, will be hugely fulfilling. The challenges of an ageing population, auto-enrolment, greater flexibilities and legacy defined benefit versus money purchase schemes are all creating an extremely dynamic environment. Tech will also have an increasing role to play in encouraging employees to engage more actively with their pensions.”
