Overview

Aaron concentrates his practice on complex commercial disputes, e-discovery matters, and litigation at all levels of Ohio courts and in federal district and appellate courts. Aaron assists commercial enterprises, public utilities, and professional organizations on developing strategies to resolve complex litigation disputes, and has particular experience with managing complex electronically-stored information (ESI) matters.

Aaron devotes a significant portion of his practice to counseling entities in the wireless industry. He regularly advises wireless telecommunications carriers and related construction enterprises on matters of wireless infrastructure network and facility deployment of legacy and state-of-the-art mobile technologies nationwide, including 4G and 5G upgrades using macro, distributed antenna system (DAS), micro and small cell technologies. Aaron’s wireless practice focuses on initiatives to improve wireless voice, video and data services that drive e-commerce and urban connectivity by teaming with radio frequency engineers, real estate professionals and external relations personnel to develop and implement legal and business strategies from entitlement proceedings to breaking ground on new wireless infrastructure. This work involves administrative permitting proceedings, zoning and rights-of-way disputes, and related litigation in federal courts arising under applicable federal laws, including the Telecommunications Act of 1996, Section 6409 of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, and FCC shot clock and spectrum rulings and regulations. In connection with the deployment of  small cell wireless technology, Aaron prepares, analyzes, and negotiates attachment and use agreements on behalf of wireless telecommunications carriers to obtain access to the facilities of municipalities and utility providers throughout the country.

Aaron also advises clients in commercial transportation defense, including trucking litigation, government and regulatory affairs, and the resolution of disputes common in the transportation and logistics industry.
