Aaron L. J. Pereira is a litigator and patent attorney, with a background in chemical & biomolecular engineering, and a decade of experience with all aspects of patent litigation, procurement, and counseling.
As a litigator, Aaron is known for his ability to distill dense technical records into simple and winning legal arguments, and has done so in federal courts around the country, at the ITC, and before the Patent Office. He has counseled some of the world’s largest and most sophisticated companies on matters of global patent strategy, market entry, and product competition. Aaron also has experience managing large parallel litigation in federal district court and at the Patent Office, and has developed a deep understanding of the procedural and substantive interplay between such proceedings. Aaron has several years of experience litigating and counseling in the life sciences space, with a special focus on Hatch-Waxman and BPCIA matters. He has also brought and defended copyright, trademark, Lanham Act, and general business tort claims in complex commercial litigation.
Aaron is also a registered patent attorney with several years of experience prosecuting patents in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and medical device space. This includes having managed the worldwide prosecution of several families of pharmaceutical dosage formulations, and drafting patent applications on pharmaceuticals and the methods and products of organic syntheses. Aaron also has experience rendering patent opinions.
In addition to litigating and prosecuting patents, Aaron has significant expertise in IP diligence. He has run several large IP reviews in support of multibillion-dollar acquisitions and private equity financing, in a variety of industries, with a focus on life sciences. Through this work, Aaron has developed a keen understanding of both the buy and sell side of such transactions, and a familiarity with the types of advice and reports needed to see them through to completion. He leverages this knowledge to counsel both startup companies, and those that would support or acquire them.
Aaron is active in bar associations and voluntary organizations, including the New York City Bar Association, where he serves as the current Chair of the Patents Committee. Aaron holds a joint J.D. and L.L.M. from the Benjamin N.
