The ‘highly-qualified work team‘ at Cariola Díez Pérez-Cotapos is routinely mandated to advise on the labour aspects of company restructurings, along with collective bargaining and immigration issues. Other areas of strength for the eight-strong team are stock-option plans, compensation packages, and the tax side of labour benefits. The firm’s international clients further appreciate its membership of L&E Global, a worldwide alliance of international employment law firms. Ricardo Tisi predominantly focuses on advice to companies on labour and social security matters; recently-elevated partner Bárbara Zlatar (‘great analytical skills‘) leads the group’s immigration practice; and Ignacia López, who oversees the firm’s labour advisory and litigation work, is a May 2022 returnee from Clínica Alemana, where she was human resources manager. Within the senior associate pool, Sebastián Krebs is an experienced labour litigator, while former legislative adviser at the Ministry of Labour, Daniela Valencia, returned to the firm in March 2022.
