Ejaso ETL Global creates a new fundamental rights unit

Ejaso ETL Global has created a new unit specialised in fundamental rights, which will be led by María Emilia Casas Baamonde (pictured centre), of counsel of the firm.

Casas Baamonde is a former president of the Constitutional Court and the first female professor of labour law and social security.

The creation of this new specialised unit arose as a result of the need to offer a specific service for the protection of fundamental rights in the current scenario, marked by progress and innovation and the inherent risk to these rights.

This new unit is aimed at both individuals and companies, in the private and public spheres, and the services offered include preventive advice to companies, professional intervention in the formulation of appeals/questions of unconstitutionality before the Constitutional Court or the filing of applications before the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).

“It is not possible to live in a democratic society without fundamental rights and civil liberties being respected by all, public authorities and private organisations and individuals. They are the foundation of personal dignity, which must govern the great challenges we must face,” says María Emilia Casas.
