Webinar recording: Pensions Rectification – Evidence and Pitfalls

The recording for our pensions webinar on rectification is now available to watch. Watch Keith Bryant QC and Michael Uberoi consider what evidence needs to be put before the court and how to avoid some of the pitfalls.

Keith Bryant QC and Michael Uberoi cover:

  • What evidence needs to be put before the court when the alleged mistake is not referred to in the documents?
  • How does a Claimant go about establishing the necessary mutual intention in such cases?
  • When is a mistake a mistake as to legal effect, and when is it a mistake as to consequences? – how to approach this distinction in pension rectification cases.
  • The use of confidential opinions – how the courts presently view them.
  • How to establish the necessary subjective intention of the parties, post FSHC.

The webinar


Keith Bryant QC has appeared in and advised upon many significant pension rectification cases – including Re ColArt Pension Scheme [2019] EWHC 3081 (Ch), SPS Technologies v Moitt [2020] EWHC 2421 (Ch) and CMG Limited v Taylor [2021] EWHC 1171 (Ch). The 2021 legal directories say that he is “entirely reliable, dependable, pragmatic and provides strong technical advice.” (Pensions).

Michael Uberoi is a leading junior in pensions litigation who regularly advises upon and appears in rectification claims, with recent cases including Univar v Smith [2020] EWHC 1596 (as to which case recent judicial comment stated: “the law on rectification can be taken as settled” in light of Univar). The 2021 legal directories say that “he has very thorough and well-founded knowledge, and he is very practical and very client-friendly” (Pensions) and that he is “personable, technically outstanding, and very hard working and responsive” (Financial Services Regulation).
