When clients have a legal problem or concern, they need one thing: a solution. Aaron provides solutions across a host of subjects including business torts and contracts, insurance coverage, and real estate disputes. To this end, Aaron has drafted complaints, dispositive motions, and legal memoranda for injunctions, state and federal cases and declaratory judgment actions. He has also drafted discovery disclosures and requests and gained experience in document collection, review, and analysis.
But most legal problems don't involve complaints, motions and discovery; in fact, most legal problems never involve the courts at all. For that reason, Aaron spends much of his time helping clients minimize and avert disagreements before they become disputes. For example, Aaron is an active member of the firm's Investor Class Action Recovery practice, where he advises mutual funds, public pension funds, trusts and institutional investors on how to maximize securities class action recoveries and fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities.
For clients in the financial services and real estate sectors, Aaron also draws on his academic training- in finance and economics- and on his experience managing construction loans at a community bank. He is also adept at using technology and writing software to help clients minimize costs and efficiently solve problems.
Aaron has represented clients from a myriad of industries, including financial services, insurance and medical technology. But his clients also include underserved members of the Boston community, through participation in Mintz's pro bono initiatives. Most recently, as part of the Domestic Violence Project, Aaron successfully represented a domestic violence victim in obtaining a Chapter 209A restraining order.
During law school, Aaron served on the Harvard Business Law Review's Board of Directors, and assisted Professor Howell Jackson in his research on financial regulation. Aaron also interned at The Goldwater Institute, where he worked on public interest litigation and legislation, conducted client intake interviews, and evaluated the merits of potential cases.
