    Recognised as a ‘leading individual’ by both Legal 500 and Chambers UK, Anthea has worked with a number of pension providers to create DC master trusts, regularly providing specialist advice on DC pension provision.

    Francois Barker, Partner and Head of Pensions, Eversheds Sutherland, commented:

    “We’re delighted that Anthea has joined us, further strengthening the capability of our UK and European pension teams. Anthea comes with a wealth of experience of advising employers, plan trustees and pension providers. Her appointment is part of a continued investment by the firm in its market-leading pensions practice, and the team’s eighth lateral partner hire in the last five years.”

    Anthea Whitton, commented:

    “I’m delighted to have joined one of the leading pensions teams in the UK and Europe. It’s an exciting time to be part of Eversheds Sutherland, particularly in relation to its growing international pensions practice across Europe and the US. I look forward to drawing on my experience and expertise to help develop the practice further.”

    Eversheds Sutherland has welcomed a number of new faces to its pensions team in the last 12 months, including Partner Georgina Rankin and Principal Associate Andy Wright.

    The team has also received more than ten industry accolades for excellence in the last five years, most recently being named ‘Pension Lawyers of the Year’ at the Professional Pensions UK Pension Awards, 2017.
