Angela Stafford

Senior Knowledge Lawyer

Angela supports our fee earners and clients in keeping on top of an ever-changing world of pensions law, priding herself on making a vastly technical area easy to understand and giving practical and pragmatic guidance.

Before becoming a knowledge lawyer, Angela acted as day-to-day adviser to a number of large company and trustee clients, as well as advising on transactional work. This experience has given her a client-focused perspective and she approaches know-how with a ‘what does this really mean in practice’ lens. Angela breaks down legal developments in an accessible way, shown in our bite-size rundown of the week’s events in our What’s New This Week publication, our Pensions in Dispute litigation summaries and training sessions at our Pensions Academy.
