Aldo Ibarra is a litigator and trial attorney who represents clients in complex commercial disputes including construction, high stakes environmental tort, wildfire litigation, financial services disputes, and personal injury litigation. Aldo is also experienced in international arbitration.
I represent owners, general contractors, subcontractors, and public entities in all aspects of construction litigation. I help our clients with pre-litigation strategy, from the bidding process, to investigation of claims, and mechanic’s liens. I enjoy partnering with our clients to assess early solutions and help them negotiate out of, or in the context of, mediation. In litigation, I help our clients navigate the discovery process, identify and work with experts, and successfully take matters to trial.
My practice is also focused on assisting clients navigate a variety of complex commercial disputes, including wildfire litigation, high stakes environmental tort, financial services disputes, and personal injury actions. I also help loan servicers in connection with the recovery of bank loans, and am a member of our international arbitration practice group.
I follow the disruptive impact that new technologies, such as 3D printers, drones, and Artificial Intelligence are likely to have in the construction industry.
I follow the investing and banking trends in Latin American and can see changes in Mexican Law, specifically in the renewable energy industry, that may have an impact on foreign investors and are likely to result in international arbitration.
I follow the impact that wildfire activity can have on California residents and businesses at a legislative, regulatory, and insurance level.
