Bio

Aaron Wright is an expert in corporate and intellectual property law, with extensive experience in Internet and new technology issues. He co-founded wiki-based website ArmchairGM, which was sold to Wikia, Inc., the 17the largest website in the world. At Wikia, he handled a range of legal issues for a rapidly growing start-up, developed and implemented a number of key product features (including the development of an open source search engine), and negotiated several business development deals with leading media companies. 

 

After Wikia, Wright clerked for the Honorable William J. Martini of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey and worked as an associate at several prominent New York law firms, including Patterson Belknap and Jenner & Block. He received his J.D. cum laude from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where he served as the editor-in-chief of the Cardozo Law Review.
