Under the stewardship of managing partner Joseph Guiliano, Haley Guiliano never stops evolving and is constantly finding ways to bring new value to its clientele; over the past 18 months or so, it has added more than 15 professionals to its roster, elevating its skill set in various ways and increasing its diversity to allow for better strategic ideation and problem-solving. Among other notable developments, the boutique has expanded its life sciences practice in Europe through the hire of London-based counsel Alison Care and has taken it up a notch in the United States, too, promoting molecular and integrative physiology PhD Brian Gummow to the partnership. Debuting in the rankings this year, “Brian provides tactical advice that progresses clients’ portfolios and adds tremendous value. He is highly responsive to any questions and requests and his written work product is very high quality.” Care and Gummow have recently linked up to draft and prosecute US and international patents covering treatments for central nervous system disorders and infectious diseases. Working alongside them on this, James Haley is one of the most experienced life sciences patent lawyers in the United States and has procured over 750 US patents for his clients in his celebrated 45-year plus career. Karen Mangasarian is another important name for the contact book: “Deliberative, strategic and thoughtful, she’s an outstanding attorney. Her legal acumen is second to none and her advice is unfailingly pragmatic.”

With star practitioner Peter Hale having been long recognised in the IAM Patent 1000 as a recommended individual, Haley Guiliano enters the guide for the first time in 2022, thanks to a growing reputation. Starting life as a spin-off from Ropes & Gray, the group established its London office in 2017 and in the five years since has become known for its work on both high-value IP deals and high-stakes contentious matters before the courts and the EPO. Hale brings a naval engineering background to his practice managing portfolios and defending patents in the mechanics field. His record of success before the EPO is notable, especially when parallel court litigation is involved. At his side are European life sciences and chemistry lead Alison Care and telecommunications ace Roger Nash. Care is an immunology expert well versed in relevant areas like mRNA and is recognised for her commercial nous; Nash arrived at Haley Guiliano fresh off a stint as patents head at British Telecommunications plc, meaning he easily sees things from his clients’ perspective.
