Leading pensions lawyer John Cunliffe, who is head of employee benefits at McKenna & Co, is to retire next June and is considering taking up a lecturing job overseas. He said: "I will be 62 by next June, McKennas' official retirement age. That is quite old for a City lawyer." Cunliffe said he was looking at university posts in Sydney and Canada but added: "It may or may not happen." Cunliffe, who is highly regarded as a pensions lawyer, and particularly in the field of occupational pensions, qualified 37 years ago and joined McKennas as a partner 10 years ago. Pensions partner Nigel Moore replaces him as head of employee benefits at the firm.
