As a specialist in employment law, Cifuentes will join the Employment practice of the firm as partner during the course of the next few weeks. His rich and successful career has served him to be selected as one of the best employment law attorneys in Spain by the directory Best Lawyers® and to be ranked in band 2 in Chambers & Partners Europe for his work in the same field.

These new additions come to strengthen the work of the firm’s Employment practice, which is led by partners Luis Enrique Fernández Pallarés and Fernando Ruiz, and formed by associates Laura Pérez and Isabel Moya, among others. Throughout 2014, Pérez-Llorca has reinforced various practices with the arrival of Ana Ribó, who together with the Judge on leave of absence, Javier García Marrero, joined the Litigation & Arbitration practice of the firm, and the State Attorney on leave of absence Elena Veleiro as well as Prosecutor on leave of absence Antonio Camacho, who joined the Public Law and White Collar Crime teams, respectively.
