Gloria Labbad, partner and senior counsel at FGS Global, has joined Heather Podesta’s Invariant as it beefs up its litigations unit.

She did a six-year stint as corporate counsel at Sard Verbinnen & Co., which was acquired by Finsbury Glover Hering in December 2021.

Earlier, Labbad practiced law at Dentons and McGuireWoods and served as a federal district court law clerk.

During her nearly two decade career, Labbad has handled crisis management, litigation PR, reputation building, corporate positioning and media relations matters.

She has worked with financial services, healthcare, insurance, real estate, retail, technology and manufacturing clients.

Labbad has a “proven ability to help clients navigate crises and legal challenges, providing communications counsel and strategy that protects reputation, maintains investor confidence and preserves employee morale,” said Podesta.
