This promotion, which brings the number of partners in the Madrid office to eleven, is a further demonstration of Simmons & Simmons’ continued growth and projection in the Spanish market, as well as its commitment to fostering and nurturing talent within the organisation.
“I am very proud to join the team of partners at Simmons & Simmons, a firm with strong values, where excellence in client service is combined with an exceptional human and professional team”, said the new partner.
With a degree in Law and Business Studies from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas ICADE, Carmen Torres has eighteen years of solid experience in the field of labour law. She has developed her professional career in some of the most relevant law firms, joining the labour team of Simmons & Simmons in 2014, where she has focused on strategic advice – restructuring and internal flexibility measures, investigations, collective disputes – to national and international companies.
Since her arrival in 2014, Carmen Torres has been a key element in the success of the department, with outstanding participation in doubling the size of the team and tripling the turnover of Simmons & Simmons’ Labour department.
Eduardo Peñacoba, head of the Labour department and Managing Partner of Simmons & Simmons Spain, has highlighted that “It is very exciting to see how the number of partners of the firm in Spain is growing, and it is even more exciting when the promotion takes place in the labour law practice area. Carmen is a key asset to the Simmons & Simmons Spain project, her well-deserved internal promotion confirms the strength of the national labour practice, which has become one of the few international firms with more than one partner in the labour area.”
In her new role, which is an important milestone in her career, Carmen Torres will continue to build lasting relationships with clients, helping them to overcome the employment challenges they face, to continue to provide the best service to Simmons & Simmons’ clients and to further contribute to the growth the firm is already experiencing.
“I am very excited about this new professional stage. The achievement of this promotion would have been impossible without the support of the magnificent group of colleagues who make up the Simmons & Simmons labour department,” concludes the new partner.
