Social security legislation has undoubtedly been one of the areas that has undergone the greatest change in recent years, due to major swings in demographic and economic variables. It has become common for laws designed to last for decades to be amended a year or two later due to the speed of change in socio-economic circumstances. This legislative instability makes it difficult to interpret the framework in force at any one time and has a direct impact on the supplementary private social security systems which became popular after the eighties and which were designed around the then-existing legal framework.
PLMJ has a vastly experienced team of lawyers in this field, the result of assisting clients in setting up supplementary plans to the normal social security schemes, with all the issues this creates, and providing legal representation in legal and administrative proceedings arising from complex legislation scattered over various legislative instruments to which the solutions are not always clear.
“The quality of PLMJ’s work is outstanding - its lawyers seem to work 24/7 and are accustomed to handling the most complex deals.” "The firm is able to handle virtually any matter."
