Elizabeth Hartree


Elizabeth joined LawDeb from RPMI Railpen where she was Legal Director. Railpen manages the £30bn Railways Pension Scheme. This, combined with her roles as Trustee Director of the DLA Piper DC Scheme (2016 – 2019) and Trustee Director of the Institute of Engineering and Technology DB Scheme, which she will retain, means she is already an experienced pension trustee.

Prior to her role at Railpen Elizabeth held roles as a Legal Director of DLA Piper and Head of Legal, Channels and Technology at ITV.  She undertook her legal training at Baker & McKenzie in London and Chicago having received a degree in English Literature from Christ’s College, Cambridge University and completed the LPC at the College of Law, London. She holds also the PMI Award in Pension Trusteeship.

The breadth of Elizabeth’s experience across private practice, FTSE 100 companies and the pensions industry, and her trustee experience in both the DC and DB spaces, will allow her to manage the relationships with scheme sponsors, advisors and fellow trustees with ease whilst driving the best outcomes for members.

Michael Chatterton, Managing Director of LawDeb Pension Trustees commented: “Elizabeth's extensive legal experience combined with her existing trustee experience across both DB and DC make her a hugely exciting addition to the team. The professional backgrounds of our trustees, and the way this knowledge and experience is shared amongst the team, is a key benefit of appointing LawDeb.  The technology focus of Elizabeth’s legal experience is a particular asset as schemes work to better engage members whilst ensuring security remains high.”
