The law firm La Guard has incorporated Claudia Burés as a new partner in charge of labour law at its Barcelona office, in line with the firm’s commitment to continue growing as a multidisciplinary law firm.

Claudia comes from the law firm Pintó Ruiz & Del Valle where she has been a partner in the labour department for more than 10 years. She has more than 20 years of experience advising on contractual-labour matters, collective disputes, negotiation of collective agreements, labour inspections, as well as in all types of administrative and judicial litigation, in the labour and social security fields, with special emphasis on her experience in sports law. She has also provided labour law advice in numerous company restructuring processes and bankruptcy proceedings. The new partner has a degree in law from the UCAM (Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia), a diploma in social work and labour law from the University of Barcelona and a postgraduate degree in tax and labour law from the Universidad Ramón Llull.

For Juan Pablo Correa and Jordi Vilalta, partners of La Guard, “the incorporation of Claudia is excellent news for the firm because it allows us to consolidate the firm as a multidisciplinary firm with a new area that is very relevant for our clients, thus being able to continue offering clients valuable advice and providing them with solutions in all the main areas of business law”.

Claudia Burés, the new head of the employment law department, points out that “being part of such an exciting project, with so many prospects for growth and with partners with whom we are in great harmony, is a very stimulating challenge”.
