Kevin is a second career lawyer having worked as an engineer for over a decade in a variety of industries. His experience includes design of acoustic enclosures, automotive components and commercial catering equipment as well as conformance testing of aerospace and automotive components.

Kevin subsequently re-trained as a patent attorney admitted to practice in the United Kingdom and at the European Patent Office. He is also one of very few United Kingdom patent attorneys to also qualify as a Solicitor of England & Wales and a California Attorney. Kevin’s legal career has included time at a strategic IP consultancy and most recently as head of the patents practice of an international law firm.

The past five years have seen Kevin develop a niche commercial IP strategy role servicing clients in diverse industries. Kevin routinely advises clients on developing commercialization strategies and putting in place suitable contracts, undertaking pre-investment or acquisition due diligence and complex IP protection, exploitation and enforcement strategies. Kevin also has full litigation practice rights and rights of audience in the United Kingdom and California courts.

In addition to his role at Haley Guiliano, Kevin is an integral part of the UK patent qualifying examinations through his position as Chief Examiner for the foundation patent exams. Kevin has overall responsibility for setting and marking of five examination papers and manages a team of principal and marking examiners.

Outside of work, Kevin’s time is mostly occupied with family life and spending time with his wife and three children. Kevin has also recently rediscovered cycling and running after a (very) long hiatus and he is training for the 2020 London Marathon and duathlon season.
