He also counsels clients on commercial and residential real estate transactions, entity formation, regulatory matters, life settlement transactions, eminent domain, property rights, condemnation, takings, title insurance, and acts as an adviser on day-to-day issues that naturally arise in any venture or for high-net-worth individuals or families.   Prior to forming Adler Wellikoff, Aaron worked as an in-house attorney at Ocwen Financial Corporation (NYSE: OCN) in West Palm Beach and Emergent Capital, Inc.
