Ignacio’s expertise focuses on contractual issues and senior executive relations including noncompetition and confidentiality covenants; severance and termination agreements; constitutional fundamental rights; discrimination, retaliation, wage and hour laws, employee privacy and employer monitoring of information technology data; and geographical and functional mobility. He also counsels clients with an international perspective on employment policies and procedures and provides direct support for a full range of corporate issues including reorganizations, TUPE, mergers and acquisitions, data protection and immigration issues.
