Wragges boosted by pension client win

Wragge & Co’s pensions practice has been boosted by the addition of two sets of pension fund trustees as clients.

The firm has been instructed as sole adviser to the trustees of two Admenta pension schemes – Admenta Pension Trustees and AAH Lloyds Pension Trustees. Admenta, which controls high street pharmacy chain Lloyds and pharmaceutical distributor AAH Pharmaceuticals, is owned by German-listed pharmaceutical company Celesio.

Wragges won the clients after being invited to pitch for the work. The team acting for the trustees is being led by pensions partner Richard Black and associate Michael Collins. They will advise on a range of pensions-related issues.

The news comes on the back of the firm obtaining appointments by the trustees of the Group 4 Securicor Pension Scheme and the trustees of the Ashridge Business School Pension Scheme.
