Elena Esparza holds a Law Degree from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and a Master’s Degree in International Law from the University of Hull, UK, and a Master’s Degree in Corporate Legal Consultancy from IE Business School. During her professional career of more than 25 years she has worked at law firms such as Freshfields and CMS Albiñana & Suárez de Lezo, where she was a partner in the labour law department.

Esparza specialises in corporate restructurings involving collective redundancies and worker mobility. She also has extensive experience advising companies on the labour implications of cross-border mergers and acquisitions, as well as on the negotiation of employment contracts of senior executives and directors.

José Vicente Morote, Managing Partner of Andersen in Iberia, has highlighted that this incorporation “represents an important reinforcement to one of the traditional disciplines, such as the labour and employment area, which already has an important weight in the Firm with 6% of turnover, and which continues to further increase the excellent capabilities we already have to provide a highly specialised service in all areas of the practice”.
