Lourdes Garcia is part of CMS Grau since November 2015 and specializes in labor and social security law. She has experience in recruitment planning actions, as well as income-generating policies for the prevention of potential conflicts. Also, Lourdes has experience in labor audits and provides specialized and integral advice to national and foreign companies, assuming their defense in labor judicial and/or administrative procedures.

Lourdes has been directly involved in collective bargaining processes that have sustained various companies with their workers organised in trade unions and has advised various companies in the private sector, in areas such as the retail sector, Energy and Mining.

We look for customers who have a significant number of workers which present different situations, requiring each of them a comprehensive and objective assessment. The main problem that often occurs is the lack of labor preventive planning and as a consequence it can impact on the management of human resources as well as the labor climate, which entails the need to evaluate the situation to determine what are the aspects that need to be restructured in order to avoid the generation of contingencies. We try to provide customers with a turnkey solution from a labor approach that avoids exposure to major contingencies and which, moreover, is of immediate application

Before CMS Grau, Lourdes worked as an Associate in Cavero-Blumenfeld, Llosa & R. La Rosa Law Firm (2009).
