Chris Bennett works at our London office and works with Mark Lake in complex police pension and police discipline cases.
Chris largely advises on matters in relation to all aspects of Police Medical Appeal Board work, including medical pension and retention matters as well as injury pensions. He also advises on K5 Police Pension forfeiture.
In the last year or so Chris has piloted the Laws 3 civil case, a niche pensions matter in which it was found that the Metropolitan Police had unlawfully reviewed the pensions of former officers. Chris acted for 50 former officers and advised them of a potential redress, which was achieved with an overall pay out of £2m for the officers and the restoration of their pensions.
