After graduating from the Pepperdine University School of Law in 1988, René Tovar began his career with a nationally recognized entertainment law firm, where he represented production companies, entertainment executives, actors, comedians, producers, directors, and hall of fame recording artists and athletes in a variety of matters, including contract disputes, royalty claims, privacy matters, intellectual property disputes, personal injury claims, employment issues, and other business related claims. Mr. Tovar has appeared on national broadcasting and cable networks to discuss legal issues and cases. Rene Tovar has been a certified players agent with the Major League Baseball Players Association since 1998 and has represented Major League players in numerous baseball arbitrations.

Mr. Tovar co-founded Tovar & Cohen, LLP, in 1995, where he focused on business and entertainment transactions and litigation. With Tovar & Cohen, LLP, Rene Tovar has litigated high-profile cases and has argued before federal and state appellate courts throughout California. He has negotiated contracts with and for record labels, music production companies, and film and television production companies. Mr. Tovar has also negotiated settlements with and for almost every major insurance company in the country in a wide variety of matters.

Over the past several years, Rene Tovar has focused his career on dispute resolution. He has received alternative dispute resolution training at Pepperdine University School of Law, home to the prestigious Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, and through the Los Angeles Superior Court. Mr. Tovar has served numerous districts of the Los Angeles Superior Court as a court-appointed mediator, and he as served as a private mediator with InterMediate Dispute Resolution Group.

With his education, training and experience as an attorney and mediator, Rene Tovar has the ability to get the parties to focus, not only on the critical legal and factual issues, but on important personal considerations. Mr. Tovar's skills have enabled him to successfully mediate a very high percentage of the hundreds of cases he has mediated over the years. Mr. Tovar's experience helps him to credibly communicate the strengths and weaknesses of each litigant's case to the parties and their attorneys, and to competently and confidently discuss what each side might expect going forward if the parties' case does not settle. All of this, as well as Mr. Tovar's passionate and tenacious mediation style, and unstoppable willingness to push the parties to continue to work toward a settlement - even after a mediation session has ended without an agreement - are but a few hallmarks of this mediator.

Attorneys and adjusters alike describe Rene Tovar as an "excellent neutral," "a mediator we would be willing to recommend" and a "mediator I would use again." One well known mediator, who as counsel on a case mediated by Rene Tovar, described Mr. Tovar as "a mediator's mediator."
