Sara Berry assists clients in negotiating out of problem situations on appeal, during litigation, and before litigation starts.
She represents clients in state and federal courts, including the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Idaho Supreme Court. She has shaped her practice to provide the appellate perspective during trial in order to preserve issues and present a fully developed trial record on appeal. Sara applies her unique perspective to benefit clients through motions practice at the trial court. Sara assists local and national clients of all sizes, focusing on complex civil litigation and appeals, including disputes arising from contracts, eminent domain, property use, insurance coverage and business interruption, and products liability.
Prior to joining Holland & Hart, Sara practiced litigation for over four years at Stoel Rives. She served as a law clerk to Judge Stephen S. Trott of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and for Judge Sergio Gutierrez of the Idaho Court of Appeals before entering private practice.
