After nine years working at RocaJunyent as a partner, Àlex Santacana Folgueroles joins Ceca Magán Abogados as a partner in the Labour department of the Barcelona office, joining the staff currently made up of more than 40 labour lawyers at the national level, together with part of his team: Albert Toledo, as director in the labour department, and Rut Villalonga, as an associate.
A specialist in collective bargaining and Labour Litigation, Alex has handled more than 100 redundancy processes throughout his career, including that of the now-defunct Unión Democrática de Catalunya. He is also recognised for his work in the design of internal policies for companies and complex mandates such as the negotiation of agreements or the implementation of equality plans.
A graduate in Law from the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, he has extensive experience in Labour matters and Labour relations in the banking, automotive and retail sectors, having worked in the past as a Labour lawyer for the former “La Caixa”.
In his career, he spent the last nine years managing the Labour department of Roca Junyent, a firm in which he managed the entry of the area and its consolidation as a reference for the international directory Chambers & Partners. His clients define him as “an enthusiast for knowing the needs of the companies he works with and contributing his experience to them”.
Enrique Ceca, managing partner of the Labour department at CECA MAGÁN, said: “I have always considered Àlex to be one of the best labour lawyers in Spain. Being able to count on him in our team is a real luxury. His signing allows us to underpin the level of technical and human quality that we are looking for in our firm.”
According to Àlex Santacana, who will lead the labour team in the Barcelona office: “This new stage is a professional challenge for me as I join one of the leading labour law firms in this country with excellent professionals and a great growth in the last decade.”
