Thomas Eggar Church Adams has expanded its pensions and trusteeship team with the appointment of Graham Chrystie, formerly head of the employee benefits department at Vizards Wyeth, to its London office
Chrystie, who joined two weeks ago, has taken his entire team, comprising three assistants, to Thomas Eggar, as well as all of his clients. He is currently working on a mammoth judicial review application test case involving Annette Carson, the South African-based UK pensioner who is fighting the UK Government over its decision not to pay 560,000 UK overseas pensioners any indexation increases. The hearing is scheduled for 15/16th April. Chrystie had been a partner at Vizards Wyeth for more than 10 years. The firm has recently moved its personal injury operations to Dartford where it also houses its private client department. It also has two offices in Lime Street, London which concentrate predominantly on insurance and reinsurance and professional indemnity work. Thomas Eggar Church Adams has offices in both London and the South East. The firm had an existing pensions/trusteeship team before Chrystie's arrival, with one partner and three assistants.
