Aaron is a partner in J A Kemp’s Trade Marks & Designs Group.
In addition to being a UK-qualified solicitor, Aaron is also qualified as a Canadian barrister and solicitor, and an Australian solicitor and registered trade mark attorney.
Aaron’s practice involves all things related to trade marks and brand protection. He also specialises in domain name dispute management. The Legal 500 lists Aaron as a “recommended” trade mark attorney and notes that he is 'a truly outstanding specialist in domain name management, strategy, registration and recovery'. His experience and qualifications in the (sometimes very different) law and procedures of numerous jurisdictions often come in handy in all facets of his practice. World Trade Mark Review 1000 describes Aaron as an “exceptional, world-class adviser”.
Examples of Aaron’s work include:
Aaron frequently advises clients on internet and domain name monitoring, domain name acquisition, website and social media complaints and domain name disputes at all major tribunals, including in respect of new gTLDs. In 2018 he was one of only 34 practitioners around the world selected by ICANN to consult on the Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS) dispute system. The same year he was appointed as a UDRP dispute panellist by the National Arbitration Forum in the United States.
Aaron joined J A Kemp as a partner in 2019, having previously worked elsewhere in private practice in the UK, Australia and Canada.
