Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co's pensions team has been appointed as the main legal adviser to the trustees of the £76.8 million Fujitsu (FTS) Pension Scheme.
The appointment puts a further pension arrangement operated by the UK subsidiary of Japanese listed-company Fujitsu Limited under the legal guidance of Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co.
Partner Jason Coates led the team, supported by associate Jane Blackwood and solicitor Eley Baynes.
The team will work closely with the chairman to the trustees, Robbie Mair, and secretary to the trustees, Katherine Milton, to advise on the legal aspects of all pensions issues.
The pension scheme has a defined benefit section and defined contribution section and so will need to respond to recent changes in the law affecting both types of arrangement.
Mr Coates said: "Our practice brings together a team of pensions experts with a strong track record of providing clear and commercially-focused advice.
"We are looking forward to providing a quality service to the trustees of another Fujitsu pension arrangement."
Mr Mair said: "We are very pleased to be working with the Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co team. We like their approach and style and feel it fits well with us."
Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co also advises the trustees of the £120 million Fujitsu Comparable Pension Scheme, which has operated as a pension vehicle for public sector employees joining Fujitsu under TUPE regulations and, in June 2010, was appointed as sole legal adviser to the £3 billion ICL Group Pension Plan of Fujitsu Services and the Fujitsu Services Common Investment Fund.
Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co's 40-strong pensions team advises employers and pensions trustees on a full range of contentious, non-contentious and investment matters.
Led by 11 partners, the team also works with industry bodies such as the Pensions Protection Fund and is increasingly operating in specialist areas such as buy-in/buy-outs, defined contribution arrangements, and the legal documentation relating to complex investments made by trustees.
