Some of you might remember that, last year, Rick was named a “Best Lawyer” by the Best Lawyers in America folks, in the field of “Litigation—Intellectual Property.” It’s a nice honor, and we appreciate it! Well, this year, Rick was again named a “Best Lawyer,” but this year, it’s not only in the field of “Litigation —Intellectual Property,” but also the fields of “Copyright Law” and “Trademark Law.” So there you go! Congratulations!

Rick Sanders

Rick is the litigation half of Aaron & Sanders, PLLC; and, from 2012 to 2014, an adjunct professor at Vanderbilt University Law School, where he was teaching Copyright Law. Vandy also happens to be where he got his law degree in 2000. After graduation, he practiced at a major intellectual-property law firm in Silicon Valley for a few years. He returned to Nashville in 2004, where he worked for a large Nashville firm, practicing as much intellectual-property law as he could, but also a lot of commercial law. He left that firm in 2011 to start Aaron & Sanders with Tara Aaron, so he could practice intellectual-property law full time and work with start-ups and other non-institutional clients.
