Our lawyers have the necessary skills to provide a customised and high-quality service for our clients in advisory matters and litigation, both in the UK and internationally.
With a client roster of more than 500 occupational pension schemes, we look at what our clients are trying to achieve and give the most commercial and pragmatic advice to reach that objective.
In 1966 respected solicitor Harry Sacker left his role at Linklaters to set up his own practice taking along with him his most loyal clients. He then set up an office providing legal services in commercial law, including pensions. As Sacker and Partners’ reputation grew, so did the size of the firm, and in 1990 the partnership decided to refine its focus to become a specialist law firm advising the pensions industry. Harry retired, leaving a thriving specialist practice with a strong reputation as trusted advisers to trustees and employers of pension arrangements.
We are largely formed by the individuals who make up the firm and we work hard to maintain our position as trusted advisers. We look at what our clients are trying to achieve and give the most commercial and pragmatic advice to reach their goals. We thrive in a changing environment and adapt ourselves to these changes with utmost professionalism. This is one of the reasons we have so many long standing clients, with some relationships lasting decades.
- Commercial and pragmatic solutions for our clients
- Client care from building long lasting relationships
