A Practitioner’s Guide to Correcting Mistakes in Pension Schemes

Published March 2022

We are delighted to announce that Paul Newman QC has written a book that has been published today by Bloomsbury Professional: A Practitioner’s Guide to Correcting Mistakes in Pension Schemes.

Providing a practical guide to the different methods available to correct commonly occurring mistakes in the governing provisions of pension schemes, it combines a detailed review of the law with (where relevant) practical tips, including analysis of the appropriate practice and procedure involved in the key methods of correction.

With a significant body of case law enabling more authoritative answers to be given to the legal issues affecting the correction of pension scheme mistakes, and more and more mistakes being discovered because of the move to secure pension scheme liabilities with insurance companies, trustees and employers need swift and accurate legal advice on what they can do to correct such mistakes. This book provides them and their legal advisers with that advice ensuring they do not make the same costly mistakes that others have made.

Paul Newman QC is a leading silk who has been practising in the pensions field for over 30 years. He has contributed to several texts and written numerous articles, as well as lectured on the subject. Paul regularly advises some of the largest UK pension schemes and FTSE 100 companies on various pensions issues, often of a highly technical nature. He is consistently ranked in the legal directories as a band 1 pensions silk, where he has been described as having “a first-class mind” and being “an absolutely outstanding advocate”.
