Jonthan Fisher QC Barrister London

Jonathan Fisher QC recently spoke to White Paper Conferences about the Pensions Regulator’s new powers to investigate and prosecute pension fraud, introduced by the Pension Schemes Act 2021.

From 1 October 2021, the new powers will enable the Pensions Regulator to investigate and prosecute those who avoid employer debts, prevent pension scheme members from receiving their benefits in full, or do not comply with a contribution notice.

Jonathan discussed how potent the Regulator’s beefed-up powers are, setting out his views on whether the new measures are a new and important innovation or a damp squib.
