The current financial environment is seeing a growth in distressed deals and rescues.

In this context, defined benefit pension schemes remain a major challenge, particularly in the light of the recently introduced criminal offences relating to the treatment of pensions, and a reinvigorated Pensions Regulator.

This webinar will help equip you to deal with these challenges and negotiate the pitfalls to ensure the pension scheme is appropriately treated whilst promoting the restructuring and survival of the underlying business.

It is suitable for solicitors and in house lawyers who are well-versed in distressed transactions, insolvency practitioners, covenant advisers and other distressed transaction professionals.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • The powers of the Pensions Regulator, and how those have developed following the Pension Schemes Act 2021
  • The position of the Pensions Regulator and the Pension Protection Fund under the Corporate Governance and Insolvency Act 2020
  • The different approaches of the Pensions Regulator, the Pension Protection Fund and the pension trustees to the restructuring
  • Different options for the pension scheme, including RAAs, PPF plus deals and scheme rescues
  • Practical suggestions on how to manage the relationship with the different parties
  • How the changing financial world is affecting pension schemes, and how this might affect the transaction
