How we will help?
Medici Legal enjoys the positive role as 'strategic enablers' of your firm's growth in your sector.
We will explain what the legislation actually means: all of it as it applies to you.
Our aim is to demystify regulation and the law and present our understanding in an accessible form which makes sense to you. We do the hard work; research, analysis and summarise raw legislation and regulation to address your needs. That means you do not waste your time trying to make sense of it on your own; leaving you with more time and better conclusions to focus on your objectives.
We can work with you as if we were your inhouse legal team. Equally we can operate alongside your in-house legal and compliance teams, offering a hand in glove service. Our experience and areas of expertise lend itself well to an outsourced advice service - we will identify the legal issues and the associated legal concerns within the areas of our remit and then report our findings and guidance back to you

Where is the legal risk?
Establishing, operating and administering pension products and pension schemes, and creating products for the pensions professional involves risk. Pensions regulatory complexity and the contractual nexus supporting pension schemes are the source of legal risk.
The pension professional has many barriers to effective management of product portfolios stemming from the complicated pensions regulatory framework. The FCA, HMRC, DWP and others have created a kaleidoscopic regulatory framework to take into account.
Do we need to mention the constant challenge of constant change to deal with?
