Fieldfisher's new Manchester based pensions partner announces two new client wins


Jeremy Harris joined the Fieldfisher team from DLA Piper in September, boosting the Peter Street based firm's rapidly growing Employment & Pensions team.

With over 29 years' experience, he has truly hit the ground running and gained two new clients, Sibelco UK Occupational Pension Scheme and Cooper Pensions Limited. The Sibelco UK Occupational Pension Scheme is sponsored by Sibelco group companies and Cooper Pensions is the trustee of pension schemes sponsored by the Eaton Corporation Group of companies. Both were the result of successful pitches delivered by Harris and the Fieldfisher team.

Sibelco is a global material solutions company with 174 production sites in more than 30 countries and over 8,500 employees worldwide. Its UK head office is in the North West, at Sandbach, with quarrying operations in Cheshire and elsewhere in the UK.

Eaton Corporation Group is a power management company that provides energy efficient solutions to help its customers effectively manage power more efficiently, safely and sustainably. The company has around 99,000 employees and sells products to customers in more than 175 different counties.

Fieldfisher's pensions team, led by Harris, will advise Cooper Pensions Limited who are the trustee of 3 defined benefit pension schemes, sponsored by the Eaton Corporation group of companies, on legal matters. Harris has acted for Cooper Pensions Limited for over 20 years and carried out this work whilst at his previous firm.

Jeremy's focus in the coming months will be on continuing to bring in new clients to the firm as well as expanding and capitalising on his existing North West network.

Jeremy said:

"I am pleased to announce these two client wins so early into my time at Fieldfisher. I am keen to continue to develop our existing North West offering whilst maintaining a strong focus on delivering excellent client service and a high level of satisfaction. Sibelco and Cooper Pensions Limited are two fantastic wins and I look forward to working with both clients and supporting them with their portfolios.

I greatly enjoy working with the Directors and teams at both clients and look forward to continuing to nurture our strong working relationships".
