Rising Star Aaron R. Gott

Aaron R. Gott is a top-rated antitrust lawyer who focuses on antitrust and competition litigation, complex business litigation, challenges to government conduct, and appeals. Aaron is lead counsel in several antitrust cases, exemplifying his extensive experience in prosecuting and defending antitrust cases and other complex litigation. He has represented parties before the U.S. Supreme Court four times and argued countless appeals in the U.S. Courts of Appeals. He is also one of the nation’s leading lawyers on issues involving the state-action immunity, a narrow antitrust exemption often claimed by government entities such as state professional licensing boards and municipalities who are sued for violating the federal antitrust laws. He counsels clients on a range of issues, including antitrust compliance, antitrust exemptions including farm cooperatives under the Capper-Volstead Act, and employment noncompete agreements.

Aaron is a combat veteran who served nearly a decade in the U.S. Army. He entered law school with over five years of professional writing experience as a newspaper editor and Army public affairs officer. His work has been published in newspapers throughout the country, trade magazines, academic journals, and government publications; he has received accolades from general officers, scholars, high-profile litigators, and even federal judges. Aaron’s legal scholarship has been called “meticulously researched and brilliantly argued,” and BookForum showcased one of Aaron’s scholarly papers as an example of “rigorous and elegant writing.”
