Aaron is a Chartered Trade Mark Attorney, Irish Trade Mark Attorney and a European Trade Mark and Design Attorney. He is also one of a handful of trade mark attorneys to have the same rights of audience as a barrister to take an IP dispute before the UK courts.

He works with businesses, helping them to get the most out of their brands, designs and copyright. Aaron also assists businesses with identifying their most important tangible assets, to identify what should be protected and how they can be used to maximise income and bring value to the business.

Aaron also deals with IP disputes, and has appeared in a number of cases before the UK’s specialist IP Court (IPEC) and the High Court. Over the last 10 years he has been amongst the top 10 advocates in the UK Intellectual Property Office for trade mark disputes (by number of appearances), and as well as being instructed by brand owners is also instructed by a number of major UK firms to handle the most difficult IP disputes on their behalf on a “white label” basis.

Aaron has in-depth experience in the clothing, food and drink, and media/entertainment industries as a result of working in-house at both Unilever and BBC Worldwide during his career, of acting for a range of apparel clients and of being a co-director of a business in the bridal sector.

Aaron is on the executive council of the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (serving as the chair of its Education Policy and Development Committee), is a contributor to the profession’s Handbook on Trade Mark Practice and is a regular writer and speaker on legal developments.

Outside of law, Aaron performed as a stand-up comedian for some time alongside his legal practice, but now limits his involvement to watching others.

  • I've worked with Aaron a few times now in relation to UK trademark applications, particularly where they have become contentious. I have found Aaron to be extremely helpful and prompt in replying to emails/calls. I'll continue to use his services and would encourage anyone else in such matters to do the same.

  • Aaron has always been very quick to help us. The initial contact was through a recommendation and I understand why he came so highly recommended! I have worked with a number of lawyers but the level of detail and business understanding presented by Aaron cannot be compared with other firms. I am also kept up to date about billing and any additional expenses. Previous lawyers have landed me a bill for an additional 50% of agreed fees because the project has taken longer than they expected but haven't communicated this to me, their client. A bit of a shock and short-sighted. Aaron ensures billing is clear for all concerned and delivers a professional service throughout.

  • Aaron is great trade mark attorney. He is very knowledgeable on trade marks, but at the same time also very business-driven. And apart from that, he is a very nice person.
