Our client is a top 20 global law firm by revenues and has over 2700 lawyers. Their Madrid office is seeking a labor and employment partner with self-sustaining portable business to lead the practice.  This is a fantastic opportunity with a world class firm.

The Partner will advise and guide clients on all types of employment challenges and opportunities and also interact frequently with the Global Co-Chairs of the firm’s Employment group and the wider group consisting of over 285 lawyers globally.

This includes: helping to develop and implement best practices in the workplace, advising and defending companies in litigation or arbitration, negotiating with unions or works councils, dealing with executive compensation arrangements and negotiation of service agreements and separations.

As this is a lead role, our client seeks a Partner with extended experience in labour law and recognised for their take-charge style. With this level of experience you will have designed, negotiated, and implemented every possible type of corporate employment restructuring.


  • A minimum of 8 years post-qualification experience in Spanish employment law and more than 15 years’ experience in total in a law firm or legal services company;
  • Understanding of key business drivers across multiple industries and the ability to thrive in a multi-disciplinary environment.
