Silvia Bauzá joins at Allen & Overy to lead the Spanish employment practice


​Silvia Bauzá joins Allen & Overy as a partner in its Madrid office to head up the employment law practice, strengthening an area that is important for the firm’s activity both in Spain and at a global level.

With more than 20 years’ experience, Silvia was previously a partner in the employment practice at Hogan Lovells in Spain. Prior to this she worked in Gómez-Acebo y Pombo and Garrigues. Silvia is well respected in the market and is considered to be one of the leading employment lawyers in the country.
Silvia has particular expertise in collective negotiations and has advised on a large number of collective dismissals. Throughout her career she has advised on significant corporate restructurings for Spanish and international companies and has wide ranging experience in incentive plan and management contract negotiations as well as on employment aspects of M&A deals. She has also participated, together with a small group of partners from some of the most prestigious law firms in Spain, in working sessions with the Ministry of Employment and Social Security.
Antonio Vázquez-Guillén, co-managing partner of Allen & Overy in Spain, explains: “Silvia’s appointment is a fantastic boost to our employment practice and will complement our existing contentious and transactional teams.  Given her outstanding experience in the market, Silvia Bauzá is the perfect fit to lead the team and maximise the benefit to our clients. Allen & Overy continues to support the growth of its Madrid office based on confidence in the Spanish market.”
Silvia added, “It’s very exciting to join a practice with so many possibilities for development and which will allow me to work with an outstanding team of lawyers from other areas in Spain, and of course those who belong to the powerful network that Allen & Overy has at an international level. For me it is a great opportunity to become part of Allen & Overy at a time when regulatory changes are expected to impact the employment market in Spain.”
Silvia Bauzá is a graduate in Law from Universidad Complutense in Madrid. She often appears as a speaker at international events, has given classes in employment law for many years and is author of numerous publications.
Joining the team together with Silvia is Ana Hernández. She has worked for most of her career in PWC as a director within the firm’s employment practice.
The arrival of Silvia Bauzá will be effective as of 2 October. It comes in addition to the recent promotion of Ignacio Hornedo to partner increasing the number of the partners in Spain to 15.
