Equal opportunities

The Garrigues partners Mónica Martín de Vidales, joint head of the Corporate/Commercial Law Department, Rosa Zarza, head of the Labor and Employment Law Department and Susana Pimenta de Sousa, from the Portugal office, feature in Iberian Lawyer’s new ranking of the Top 50 women in the legal industry in Spain and Portugal.
The Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equal Opportunity has awarded Garrigues the distinction of being an Equal Opportunity Company, a brand of excellence that acknowledges companies that stand out “in a relevant and specially significant way in the application of equal opportunity Plan policies”. Garrigues is the only law firm this year to achieve the distinction (published last Saturday in the Official State Gazette), which has been awarded to companies in different sectors since 2010.
The deputy executive chairman of Fundación ONCE, Alberto Durán,  and the executive chairman of Garrigues, Fernando Vives, have today in Madrid signed an Inserta Agreement aimed at facilitating the incorporation of people with disabilities onto the firm’s workforce.
