    Attorney Profile

    In business and complex litigation, Ivo Labar excels at surpassing clients’ expectations. He is a partner at Sawyer & Labar LLP, where he takes cases from across the country that involve employment law, insurance policyholder rights, trust litigation, corporate governance disputes and shareholder disputes.

    With decades of experience, Mr. Labar knows how to navigate cases at the state and federal level. In addition to his clerkship under a federal judge, he has himself successfully tried and won countless cases. In fact, one of his most recent accomplishments was a verdict that amounted to the largest Dodd-Frank claim award in the country and largest award in punitive damages for any type of claim in the last 10 years in the Northern District of California.

    These results stem from Mr. Labar’s knowledge of the industry and practical application of the law to his clients’ cases. Simply put, he gets the job done when other attorneys cannot or will not even try. Over the course of his career, he has earned a reputation for guiding clients from where they currently are to where they want to be.

    Mr. Labar earned a Bachelor of Science and graduated with honors from the California Maritime Academy. He then attended the University of California Hastings College of the Law, graduating with honors and a Juris Doctor in 1999.

    Today, Mr. Labar lectures at law schools and spent years as a contributing editor to legal publications. He is admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the U.S. District Courts for the Southern, Eastern, Central and Northern Districts of California, the Supreme Court of California and all state courts.
