Andrew Turnbull is head of the pensions group and chairman of Walker Morris. His pension work covers all aspects of advising companies and boards of trustees on pensions issues, but he is particularly well known for his work as an independent trustee of occupational pension schemes.
Turnbull generally takes appointments through Walker Morris’s wholly owned corporate subsidiary trustee, Walker Morris Pension Trustees Limited.
He chairs all partner, board and remuneration committee meetings and is also the partner within Walker Morris responsible for its Lexcel accreditation.
Turnbull’s expertise as a trustee is often called on where the incumbent trustees have a conflict of interest, where negotiations with the sponsoring employer are required or where the sponsoring employer itself is in financial difficulties. Such appointments usually involve Turnbull acting as chairman of the trustees and can also require negotiations with the Pensions Regulator, the Pension Protection Fund and the Financial Assistance Scheme.
