Davis, chief executive officer of Adeia.
Prior to his appointment as Adeia’s chief IP officer, Guiliano served as the lead outside IP counsel for the media business of Adeia and its predecessor companies since 1995. Most recently, Guiliano was a co-founder and managing partner of Haley Guiliano LLP, an international IP law firm with clients that include both start-up companies as well as established innovators across domestic and international markets. Prior to founding Haley Guiliano, he was the chair of the IP Rights Management practice at Ropes & Gray LLP.

He has helped clients navigate intricate issues in a variety of technical disciplines, such as medical devices, cellular telephony, semiconductor processing, and linear and streaming media services.
“I am excited to join Adeia’s management team,” said Guiliano. “I have had a front-row seat on how innovations in Adeia’s IP portfolios are contributing to the improvements across the entire entertainment technology and semiconductor ecosystem. As Adeia continues to innovate and expand the markets it serves, I look forward to building on our current position and further establishing Adeia as one of the preeminent standalone IP licensing companies in the world.”
