Allen & Overy has appointed Cristina Prados (pictured), from Deloitte Legal, as its new head of HR.
Prados has more than 20 years’ experience in the sector and will be responsible for 175 professionals in the Madrid office.
The new HR Director holds a degree in law with a specialisation in European Law. Previously, she worked as a lawyer at Garrigues Andersen and then began to specialise in people management.
“With the incorporation of Cristina Prados we continue to strengthen the firm’s team, which has grown by more than 50% in the last five years. We are convinced that she will help us to continue to drive this growth and to leverage the great talent we have,” said Antonio Vázquez-Guillén and Ignacio Ruiz-Cámara, co-managing partners of Allen & Overy Spain.
By this incorporation, Allen & Overy is filling the vacancy left by Samuel Rodríguez, the former head of the area, who left the firm in march.
