Mayer Brown’s dedicated Pensions Investment practice is led by Duncan Watson and is focused on the investment of pension and other retirement plan assets.


  • £150 million fund investment – We reviewed and negotiated the fund documents of a fund in which our client was a key investor. This was obviously a very large investment, was time- pressured and the fund had a complex investment strategy.
  • £4 billion fiduciary management mandate – We acted for a large pension scheme in its appointment of a fiduciary manager and we successfully negotiated a number of departures from the manager’s standard position.
  • Electricity Supply Pension Scheme – We are the sole legal adviser to the Scheme Trustee on investment issues, and we advise on all day-to-day investment work such as reviewing and negotiating all investment transactions made by its 24 groups to ensure compliance with the requirements of the scheme’s governing documents.
