Arc Pensions Law promotes senior associate to partner

Leeds-based senior associate Robert Walker has worked his way up to partner at Arc Pensions Law after joining the specialist law firm in 2017.

The new Arc partner advises employers and trustees on all aspects of pensions law, including compliance and governance, liability management and corporate activity. He also has significant experience providing professional independent trustee services.

He has particular expertise in advising on the pensions aspects of bulk purchase annuity contracts, including the partial buy-in of pensioner liabilities and transactions on an ‘all risks’ basis.

Walker’s promotion follows the recent appointments of Alex Rodger as a partner, Charlotte Clewes-Boyne as an associate in Leeds and Sally MacCormick as an associate in London, as Arc continues its nationwide growth and the expansion of its pensions law capabilities. 

Commenting on his appointment to the partnership, Walker said: “I am excited to join the partnership at Arc. The firm’s commitment to the pensions industry and the development of talent is second to none and I am grateful for the excellent support of colleagues and clients over the last several years. I am delighted to have the opportunity to help shape the business over the years to come.” 

Leeds partner Kate Payne said: “I have worked with Robert since before the Arc’s Leeds office was established; he is an excellent colleague and we are all looking forward to seeing him further strengthen his practice in his new role as partner.”

Rosalind Connor, managing partner at Arc, commented: “Robert is a welcome addition to our partnership and his promotion from senior associate to partner will further consolidate our nationwide pensions offering.”
