The pride of Labour practice

Iberian Lawyer presents the winners of the 2020 edition of the Iberian Lawyer Labour Awards in Spain: 24 selected in total, firms and lawyers, representing the best in the Labour sector for their expertise, activity and good practice. To all of them, the biggest applause from this publication in appreciation and recognition of their work.

Despite the unusual context in which it took place, the 2020 edition of these awards has been a success in terms of participation, with more than 200 lawyers and firms from all over the country through their nominations. The health crisis that has been hitting the Iberian Peninsula since last March meant that the 2020 edition of Labour Awards Spain was postponed until October, and expected to be held in a few days.

Due to the restrictive security measures established by the health institutions and in order to safeguard the well-being of all participants and organisers, Iberian Lawyer decided to cancel the physical event and make the acknowledgements public in this issue, in the hope of being able to resume the event in future editions and in less adverse circumstances. The exceptional situation should not, however, detract from the substance of these awards, which are held each year by Iberian Legal Group thanks to the participation of a top-level jury, which on this occasion was made up of thirteen members: Álvaro Mena Álvarez, Labour Relations director of Globalvia, Clara Cerdán Molina, general counsel and secretary of the Board of FerroAtlántica, Eduardo Romero Indacochea, deputy general manager, head of Contractual & Legal and Development & Organisation of Lug Healthcare Technology, Francisco José García Utrilla, CEO and founder of Conzierta Mediación Laboral Internacional, Isaac Millán Fernández, head of Legal & Compliance of Quirónsalud, Javier Prados Mateo, Legal director of Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, José Antonio Menéndez, Human Resources director of DS Smith, Laura Díaz González, director of LabourRelations of Grupo DIA, Luis Escribano Gómez-Fabra, director of Labour Relations and Welfare of WiZink, Marta Sempere, vice president of People & Culture at Coca Cola European Partners Iberia, Óscar Romero Jiménez, Human Resources corporate director of Vitaldent, Pablo Bolinches, head of Legal of FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) and Pablo Galán González, Human Resources director of Canal de Isabel II.

The 24 winners in the twelve categories (by firm and individual) have been selected once again this year with the aim, among other things, of stimulating competition between the firms and lawyers in Spain who focus on the Labour practice area and of recognising the excellence of private practice lawyers and law firms, who are experts in the Employment sector. Labour lawyers, as guardians of the rules of the game in the dynamics between Labour supply and demand, together with the companies ́ Human Resources managers, constitute one of the founding components of the system social framework, and that is why, once again, we are making the names of the winners public –on this occasion exceptionally from these pages. Congratulations to all of them for being an example of expertise and good practice among colleagues and clients and for standing out in a very competitive sector that also faces new and more complex challenges every day.
