Arc Pensions Law enhances leadership and expertise with new partner and managing partner appointments


Arc Pensions Law, a national specialist law firm, has expanded its leadership team with the addition of Sonya Fraser as a partner in its London office, formerly of Sackers

Sonya's expertise in advising both trustees and employers on defined benefit and defined contribution workplace pension schemes, coupled with her extensive experience in project work such as end-game planning and risk transfer projects, strengthens the firm's comprehensive offering to clients.

Sonya's appointment follows closely on the heels of the recent addition of pensions disputes expert Ben Fairhead as a partner, demonstrating Arc Pensions Law's commitment to bolstering its capabilities across various aspects of pensions legal work.

Anna Rogers, Senior Partner at Arc Pensions Law, expressed delight in welcoming Sonya to the team, highlighting her significant experience, particularly in buy-ins and buyouts, as a valuable asset for clients navigating the complexities of endgame strategies.

In a further development, Kate Payne, a partner based in Leeds, is set to assume the role of Managing Partner from April 1st, succeeding Rosalind Connor. Kate brings with her a wealth of experience and a forward-looking approach to addressing the evolving legal landscape in the pensions industry.

Commenting on her new role, Kate Payne expressed her excitement and readiness to lead Arc Pensions Law through a period of growth and change. With pensions schemes facing legal challenges at every turn, Kate reaffirmed the firm's commitment to providing robust and proactive legal advice to its clients.

To accommodate the growing team at Arc Pensions Law, the firm is relocating its London office to 100 Liverpool Street, a prominent location in the heart of the City. This move underscores the firm's commitment to providing a dynamic and supportive working environment for its employees while reinforcing its presence in the legal community.

With the addition of Sonya Fraser and Kate Payne's appointment as Managing Partner, Arc Pensions Law is poised to continue delivering exceptional legal services and strategic guidance to clients navigating the intricate landscape of pensions law.
