Sergio Ponce joined Uría Menéndez in 2002 and became a partner in 2014. He is based in the firm’s Madrid office.

Sergio holds a Law Degree from the Universidad Pontificia de Comillas (ICADE), where he also earned a postgraduate diploma in Public Law. In addition, he completed a Master’s Degree in Labour Law Practice from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

Sergio’s professional practice extends to providing legal advice to companies on both individual and collective labour relations. Sergio has extensive experience in collective bargaining, advising on all typical steps of the process, ranging from general planning of legal and negotiation strategies to dialogue with trade unions and overseeing the implementation of the terms ultimately agreed upon.

Sergio has played an important role in some of the most significant (due to their size and complexity) collective dismissals that have taken place in Spain in recent years.

Likewise, Sergio is highly experienced in providing comprehensive legal counselling to companies regarding crucial aspects of labour and social security law, such as those related to negotiation of labour contracts for senior managers (including executive directors), preparation and implementation of variable remuneration and incentive plans, decentralisation of production, management and control of working time, disciplinary dismissals and internal investigations of fraud.

He frequently advises on redundancy procedures and collective bargaining agreements.

A substantial part of Sergio’s practice involves advising clients on their employment disputes and representing them at court, as well as negotiating out-of-court settlements. He also provides advice on remuneration, pensions and other benefits.
