Who we are

Jane Marshall, Partner
A founder member of the Association of Pension Lawyers, a former committee member of the National Association of Pension Funds and a leading City pensions specialist, Jane understands the issues driving change for companies, trustee boards and intermediaries. She has acted for a wide variety of household names, such as KFC, GE and Pernod Ricard.

Jane is noted for her communication and project management skills – especially on large projects – and her ability to promote constructive working relationships between scheme sponsors and trustee boards. She is particularly interested in the policy response of business to evolving pensions regulation, such as that anticipated in EU Directive IORP 2, or devised to remedy the so-called governance gap for contract-based schemes. She was the principal author of Macfarlanes LLP’s response to the Law Commission’s recent review of the law of fiduciary obligations.

Jane began her City pensions career with Lovell White & King (now Hogan Lovells). She was a founder partner of boutique pensions law firm Ellison Westhorp with Robin Ellison and acted on many of its biggest client assignments, including advising the water industry at privatisation, establishing new arrangements for the newly created Financial Services Authority and advising ICI, Cornhill Insurance and Elementis. On Ellison Westhorp’s 1995 merger with national firm Hammond Suddards (now Squire Sanders), Jane became head of the firm’s pensions practice and oversaw its national and international expansion to a team of more than 40 specialist pension lawyers. She joined Macfarlanes LLP in 2006, stepping down from the partnership in 2014.
