Employment Law Partner Adds to Pensions and GDPR Skills

Squire Patton Boggs announces the appointment of Marga Caproni as a partner in its Labour and Employment Practice in the Brussels office.  Ms. Caproni joins from Loyens & Loeff where she was Counsel in Labour Law and Head of the Pensions Team. 

An experienced employment lawyer, Ms. Caproni advises Belgian and international clients on employment matters ranging from individual and multiple dismissals to national and international restructurings.  She represent clients in both the private and public sectors and in industries such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, media and aviation. 

Ms. Caproni also brings added expertise in terms of pensions and data privacy.  She has advised clients on the impact of transactions on workplace pensions and on implementing and adapting pension plans managed by group insurers and pensions funds.  She has an additional focus on data privacy issues, such as advising clients on GDPR in the employment law context.  She is also co-author of Praktische gids privacy in de onderneming (Practical Guide: Privacy in the Company, 2017), which explains the application of GDPR and other privacy legislation and provides useful guidance on compliance for HR managers, marketing directors, IT managers, and corporate lawyers.

Ms. Caproni holds degrees from the Catholic University of Leuven and the Free University of Brussels, and has been registered at the Antwerp Bar since 2004 and the Brussels Bar since 2007. She speaks Dutch, English and French. 

We wish Marga a warm welcome to the team”, says Brussels office managing partner Brian Hartnett. “She joins an office that continues to expand in terms of both headcount and depth of client service. Marga’s knowledge and expertise will support the growing number of clients who need specialist advice in Belgium and the EU, and her experience in pensions and data privacy will strengthen the services we offer corporate clients.  She will work closely with colleagues such Corporate partner Bart Vanderstraete and Rosa Barcelo, partner in our Data Privacy and Cybersecurity practice, to consolidate those services.”

Caroline Noblet, co-head of the Labour & Employment Practice, added: “Marga will be a great addition to our pan-European and global practice.  Clients will welcome not only Marga’s detailed knowledge of Belgian employment law but also her experience of multi-jurisdictional projects and her ability to resolve complex issues such as global mobility, pensions and benefits.”
