Carly McIver


I'm a Senior Associate at Mourant, providing pan-Channel Islands advice to the trustees and employers of defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes on issues concerning scheme administration, risk and regulatory issues in Jersey and Guernsey.

In particular, I have advised on a number of large buy-in and buyout transactions for offshore pension schemes and structured consolidation projects for the scheme documentation of a number of long-established multijurisdictional pension arrangements.

Key areas of interest include resolving matters arising under the Discrimination (Jersey) Law 2013 in respect of pension schemes, the tax approval regime for local and international pension plans in Jersey and Guernsey, complex death benefits cases and employee benefit trusts. I also advise on private client issues.

I am presently shortlisted as a Diversty/Gender Role Model at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards 2020. I was nominated for the Adviser of the Year and Rising Star of the Year awards at the inaugural Professional Pensions Rising Star Awards 2019 and shortlisted in the Senior Associate category at the Citywealth Powerwomen Awards 2020.

Before joining Mourant in 2015, I started my career as a Share Schemes Knowledge Management Assistant for Freshfields in London, trained at Wragge & Co and qualified into DLA Piper's London office in 2011.
