Bruchou & Funes de Rioja

Pre-eminent standalone practice



In July 2022, Argentinian full-service firm Bruchou, Fernández Madero & Lombardi merged with leading employment boutique Funes de Rioja to form Bruchou & Funes de Rioja.

The highly recommended Ignacio Funes de Rioja is a key contact in the team, which regularly advises both national and multinational entities.

As the Argentinian member of Ius Laboris, the team is connected to a worldwide alliance of leading employment specialists to facilitate cross-border transactions.


The department advises across the full spectrum of legal issues relating to human resources matters.

The teams activities extend to employment concerns associated with corporate projects, and include restructuring, employee transfers, assistance with M&A and privatisation processes, and voluntary retirement schemes – as well as the management of associated industrial relations.

Contentious work regularly includes representation in administrative disputes. As well as litigation, the firm also provides alternative dispute resolution services.

In addition, the team is well placed to assist with both individual and collective dismissals.

Further expertise includes social security, remuneration, benefits, incentives, and pensions. The group also advises on corporate immigration.
