Employment Law


Partner and Head of the Employment Law Department


I am Head of the Employment, Pensions and Immigration Team at Fieldfisher JAUSAS.

As an employment lawyer I have extensive experience in advising companies as well as white collar employees on all aspects of employment law. I have participated in many restructuring and collective bargaining procedures, and I regularly represent my clients before the Employment courts and tribunals, and defend employers in investigations led by the Work Inspectorate. I am an expert on senior management contracts and in advising senior managers, and also on the employment aspects of mergers and acquisitions. Before joining JAUSAS, I worked as an employment lawyer for Garrigues and Roca Junyent.

Practicing as a lawyer I have a particular focus on international and cross-border matters, since I am fluent in English, French, and German. I have a law degree from Essex University (LLB) and Paris Ouest (Maîtrise en Droit). For this reason I have gained extensive experience in international employment law, and I have many years' experience of advising foreign employers and employees in Spain. When assisting foreign clients, our team pays special attention to the specificities of business culture in Spain and to the differences with the client’s jurisdiction.

Teaching is also an important part of my professional life. So much so that I am a lecturer in law at La Salle University (BA Management in Business Technology). I am also regularly invited to undertake bespoke training on a wide range of topics related to employment law, both in Spain and abroad. Among his publications, Talmac Bel has written Schriftenreihe International "Arbeitsrecht Spanien".

  • Life Sciences Overview 2008/09

    Law 29/2006 (26 July 2006) on guarantees and rational use of medicinal products and medical devices is the central regulation governing medicinal products. The law still requires development through a large number of Royal Decrees, during 2008 and 2009. Many provisions of Law 29/2006 (such as the sale by post or by telematic means of certain medicinal products) do not appear to be enforceable until such legislation is enacted. This particularly applies to rules on medical devices, which are included in Law 29/2006, but need legislation to be effectively enforced. Such specific legislation is currently being developed, including for medical prescriptions and traceability.
