Mairi Carlin joins Burges Salmon in Edinburgh
Burges Salmon has appointed Mairi Carlin to its pensions and lifetime savings practice.
Ms Carlin joins as a professional support lawyer. She has a broad range of expertise advising employers as well as trustees on the whole range of pensions issues.
She has also advised on the technical aspects of SIPPs/SSAS provision and has provided corporate support on pensions aspects of mergers and acquisitions.
Her particular specialism centres on public sector pensions issues including on private to public sector outsourcings, TUPE transfers and private to public scheme transfers.
Ms Carlin’s appointment is the latest in a series of new hires in Scotland for the firm’s pensions practice following the arrival of senior lawyer Helen Woodford late in 2023 and solicitors Sophie Kirk and Shannon Wright-Davies a few months earlier.
Richard Knight, head of pensions and lifetime savings at Burges Salmon, said: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Mairi to our fast-expanding Edinburgh team.
“The recent appointments of Mairi, Helen, Sophie and Shannon significantly enhance our Pensions offering in Scotland and affirm our commitment to the Scottish market and to our Scottish clients, building on our reputation as one of the largest, most specialist Pensions team in the UK.”
