“Comprehensive is not the word for this book. To call it such is a vast understatement. Moreover, it has an excellent pedigree, being written, revised and edited by over 50 pensions lawyers plus other specialists at law firm CMS. They have particular experience in benefit redesign, scheme closures and liability reduction.” –  The Law Society Gazette
