Former Nabarro pensions head forms own firm
UK – John Quarrell, former head of pensions, insurance and financial services at law firm Nabarro Nathanson, has set up his own firm specialising in pensions.
“Most pension scheme trustees are shocked at the amount of their legal bills and worse still at being told, for an enormous amount, that their fund is in deficit,” Quarrell told IPE.
“We will also be providing secretarial services to trustee boards. With the growing number of determinations by the Pensions Ombudsman against trustees principally upon the grounds of defective minutes, record-keeping and boring procedural matters, we have decided to offer this service to trustees,” he added.
Quarrell left Nabarro last year and was succeeded by Geoffrey Preston.
Quarrell is a fellow of the Pensions Management Institute. He was one of the founders of the Association of Pension Lawyers.
He set up the firm, Bury-based Quarters, with his partner, Sue Beaumont.
