Languages Spanish, English

Santiago Macías is part of CMS Grau since August 2014 and specializes in Labor Law, Procedural and Constitutional Law, advising various public and private sector companies. Santiago´s experience includes consulting to various companies, in administrative proceedings before the Labor and Employment Promotion Ministry, labor audits, as well as the follow-up processes and sponsorship of various companies.

Santiago has advised several private companies in the retail, energy, telecommunications and mining sectors and searches for clients that have a considerable group of workers, which in addition have unions in order to engage in collective bargaining, as well as in judicial and administrative proceedings before the Labor Courts and the Administrative Labor Authority.

Among the major problems and challenges that are identified in these companies are the inadequate management of human resources, as well as the labor climate, having many times to restructure the staff area, apply disciplinary sanctions to workers who do not comply with the provisions of the companies, and structuring of advocacy strategies to deal with the judicial and administrative processes that may initiate such workers. We try to provide customers with a low-cost solution, it will not affect their budgets, and of immediate application, without affecting the labor discipline, or the productivity of workers.

Before CMS Grau, Santiago was an Associate at the labor área of García Sayán Abogados Law firm (2013) and  Associate at the labor área of Estudio Muñiz, Ramírez, Pérez Taiman & Olaya Law Firm.
