Lorant Porkolab


Lorant joined LawDeb in September 2021 as a Trustee Director. His appointment bolsters the LawDeb Team’s credentials in the restructuring and wider transaction space thanks to his 10-year term as Partner and Head of Covenant Advisory Services at XPS Pensions Group.

Prior to his role at XPS Lorant worked in various roles at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Hymans Robertson and Mercer. He is a CFA® charterholder with a PhD who spent the early years of his career in academia, lecturing both at Imperial College  and the London School of Economics.

Michael Chatterton, Senior Director of LawDeb Pension Trustees: “I am delighted to welcome Lorant to the business, his covenant, corporate finance and transaction experience is hugely relevant for the challenges we are seeing clients face and he will bring a fresh and different perspective to the team. Both his technical skills and wide experience in complex negotiations will be a great addition to our collective knowledge at LawDeb from which our clients will hugely benefit. Lorant’s extensive corporate advisory experience could also be utilised on the trustee side. He has already been lined up to work on a number of client projects as we see activity pick up. Of course Lorant is a well known and respected figure within the pensions industry and demonstrates the high quality of trustee LawDeb is able to attract.”
