Litigator Aaron Ver represents clients in federal and state court, arbitrations, before federal and state agencies, and in administrative hearings. Aaron regularly prosecutes and defends against breach of contract claims, real estate and commercial landlord-tenant claims, and defends clients against class actions brought in federal and state courts. His recent experience also includes recent successes in obtaining dismissal of multimillion-dollar real estate fraud claims on the eve of trial, successfully defending company founders in arbitration against fraud claims asserted in multiple jurisdictions, and resolving a multi-state business partnership dispute involving cases in federal and state courts.

Aaron ensures that his clients are in the best position to achieve their business goals. He works with companies across a wide range of industries, including technology, software, social media, real estate, commercial landlord-tenant, aeronautical manufacturing, financial services, food and beverage, video game, and retail.

Having gained valuable in-house experience as a litigation secondee to an international company, Aaron understands the complex litigation challenges that businesses face. He has conducted internal investigations and counseled technology companies on protecting trade secrets and intellectual property. Leveraging his employment law experience, he partners with startup clients to serve as an on-call adviser and strategic planner on business growth and operations.

Aaron is a coach for Berkeley Law’s nationally ranked trial team and serves as a mentor to students in the law school’s Pilipinx American Law Society. He is also a co-founder and member of the Board of Directors for The Associates’ Committee, an attorney member-funded grant foundation that supports legal aid and impact litigation nonprofits throughout the United States.

Maintaining an active pro bono practice, Aaron represents children and adults seeking asylum and recently filed an amicus brief on behalf of a civil rights organization in a constitutional citizenship lawsuit before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. He was also invited to the 2020 Northern District of California Judicial Conference for his exceptional work supporting the Federal Pro Bono project.
