Aaron S. Dyer handles complex civil and criminal litigation, with a focus on internal investigations, IP litigation, and criminal and civil trial work. A member of Pillsbury’s Litigation practice, Aaron advises clients on securities, health care, the False Claims Act, and IP theft and piracy, as well as on corporate governance issues and the implementation of corporate compliance programs.
