The Patent 1000 focuses exclusively on patent practice and has firmly established itself as the definitive 'go-to' resource for those seeking world-class legal patent expertise.
Recommended - Individuals: prosecution
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.
