With decades of experience managing a global patent portfolio, Roger has expertise in developing strategies, such as targeted pruning, to keep within a budget while minimizing the impact on the value of a portfolio. In addition, Roger has experience on the receiving end of patent assertions and litigations, handling many cases both in the U.K. and U.S. He also has experience obtaining intellectual property-based tax relief in the U.K.
Roger joined Haley Guiliano after leading one of the U.K.’s largest in-house patent departments, British Telecommunications plc (BT). He has in-depth expertise in various communication-related technologies, including information security, distributed systems, artificial intelligence, network operation, management and design, and speech and video coding. While at BT, he was instrumental in ensuring the company maximized its patent assets. As a result, he has a good deal of experience successfully asserting and licensing patents (including SEPs) to some of the world’s largest tech-based multinationals.
Outside of work, Roger enjoys walking, running, cycling, swimming and sailing around the great outdoors.
