What his colleages say

“Keith is a fantastic addition to the LawDeb team. He brings a wealth of experience of pensions including as a trustee which ensures he will hit the ground running. His mix of DB and DC experience and the fact he was worked with US and Irish pension schemes as well as those in the UK will prove extremely helpful as we start to see enquiries for our services further afield.”
