Associate

Jiaping (Charlene) Liu joined Haley Guiliano from the intellectual property rights management group of Ropes Gray LLP in 2017. Charlene has a wide range of experience in patent prosecution and counseling, freedom-to-operate analysis, non-infringement or invalidity opinions, and patent portfolio evaluation. Charlene has worked with clients in various technological fields, including software, financial service, mobile technology, telecommunications, integrated circuits, semiconductors, network security and medical devices.

Before her legal career, she obtained her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University, and was a Gordon Wu fellowship recipient. Her doctoral work focused on stochastic modeling of data networks, and she worked on wireless transmission protocols for ad hoc networks at Bell Labs during graduate school.
