Prior to setting up Neon Legal, Tushar was formerly a Partner and Head of Pensions at a large, UK Top 100 commercial law firm in the North. He has advised on all types of public and private sector pension arrangements and is consistently recognised by the legal directories as being a leading expert on pensions law in the UK. Tushar’s clients have ranged from multi-employer pension schemes with funds in excess of £1 billion and 30,000 members to individuals with personal pension plans.
Tushar is often asked by other pension professionals to assist clients with their most difficult pension issues. Last year, he successfully led the legal team which made an appeal against the first contribution notice in the UK. The Pensions Regulator had made a claim for £20 million and on appeal, finally settled the case for £60,000.
