Aaron regularly advises clients on matters such as the development, ownership and licensing of games and software, disputes about rights ownership and software defects. Aaron has supported publishers and developers with a wide range of issues, disputes and transactions involving businesses and projects at different stages, from start-up indies through to multinational AAA developments. Aaron’s intellectual property experience encompasses a wide range of contentious and non-contentious advice including trade mark prosecution, brand protection, patent, trade mark, copyright and design infringement, counterfeit and imitation products, passing off, domain name and company name disputes as well as transactional corporate and commercial matters.
