The Los Angeles City Council unanimously confirmed attorney Jeffrey Daar as the newest member of the city’s Ethics Commission, replacing Araceli Campos, who resigned from the panel.
Daar has experience on various city commissions. He is a principal at the law firm Daar & Newman and received his law degree from UC Davis in 1982, according to his appointment form submitted by Mayor Eric Garcetti.
The council had no discussion on the appointment before its vote.
“Jeffery’s extensive litigation background gives him added insight to structuring transactions for clients along with his entrepreneurial approach to problem solving and dispute resolution,” according to the appointment documents from the mayor’s office.
The documents stated that Daar has “close working relationships with lawyers throughout Europe, Latin America and Asia,” allowing him to assemble international legal teams for innovative global solutions to business transactions and disputes.
Daar regularly handles cross-border disputes and transactions, the documents stated.
Daar has been appointed by three different mayors of Los Angeles as a city commissioner since 2003 and has been approved each time by the Los Angeles City Council. Most recently, he served on the Board of Airport Commissioners.
He also served as the chairman of the Los Angeles Rent Adjustment Commission, which is responsible for adopting policies, rules and regulations pertaining to the Rent Stabilization Ordinance and acts as the Appeals Board for the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department.
Daar’s term is set to begin June 30 and will last until June 30, 2025.
