Throughout her career at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, she has held various positions of responsibility and management, including her appointment as Dean of the Faculty of Law at the University from 2014 to 2018. After two years as Secretary of State for Employment (2018-2020), Valdeolivas returned to this institution to continue her teaching and research work which, as of today, she will combine with her responsibilities at Pérez-Llorca.
Luis Enrique Fernández Pallarés, partner in charge of the firm’s Employment practice, said: “The incorporation of Yolanda Valdeolivas as of counsel of the firm represents a very valuable reinforcement for our Employment team, given her notable knowledge in this area; and is a clear reflection of the growth that this practice is experiencing in our firm in recent years”.
