Eversheds’ former City pensions chief takes role at SNR Denton

Eversheds’ London pensions head Jay Doraisamy has left the firm to join SNR Denton.

Doraisamy joined Eversheds in 2009 from Squire Sanders legacy firm Hammonds (29 April 2009), where she was also London head of pensions. Doraisamy left Eversheds in November 2011. Jeremy Godwin has since replaced her as London pensions head at Eversheds.

Doraisamy specialises in advising on takeovers of sponsoring companies, scheme benefit changes, statutory debts and pension issues.

In a statement, SNR Denton’s UK managing partner Brandon Ransley, said: “[…] Jay’s excellent reputation and expertise, especially in the utilities sector, will be a huge benefit to the practice and allow us to continue to be a market-leading practice in this area.

“Following the recent strengthening of our international finance team by the recruitment of three laterals this is further evidence of our commitment to recruiting the highest calibre lawyers into the firm and to provide a first class service to our clients.”
