Year Joined Firm:
Aaron King is a litigation associate at Merovitz Potechin LLP practicing in the areas of commercial and civil litigation, estate litigation, mortgage enforcement and other debt collection.
Aaron enjoys the intricacies and challenges of litigation and approaches each unique case attentively and thoroughly. He focuses on how he can help his clients in the most effective ways, understanding that litigation is rarely an ideal situation.
Aaron has always had an interest in law and knew early on he wanted to become a lawyer. Prior to law school, Aaron attended Carleton University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) with a focus on Legal Studies.
During law school, Aaron focused on litigation and took on a variety of challenges in different areas of law. Aaron participated in two international competitive moots – The Willem C. Vis moot, an international commercial law and arbitration moot in Vienna, Austria, and the Philip C. Jessup moot, a public international law moot in Washington D.C. Aaron continues to give back to the moot program at the University of Ottawa, most recently coaching the Wilson Moot team.
Coming from a criminal law background, Aaron has a lot of experience advocating for his clients in the Courtroom with various trial and motion appearances. He recognizes, however, that many disputes can be resolved before going to court and focuses on alternative methods to resolving various issues efficiently and effectively before resorting to trial.
Outside of the office, Aaron enjoys spending time with his family, playing soccer, and drinking coffee.
