Technical Advisor

Brit Barrett joined Haley Guiliano in 2018 as a Technical Advisor where she focuses on patent prosecution for life sciences clients.

Prior to pursuing her career in patent law, she earned her Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame where she studied organometallic chemistry. Her research focused on utilizing pi-based chelating ligands to trap reactive intermediates not commonly observed in order to elucidate reaction mechanisms that are not well understood. Before pursuing her doctoral degree, Brittany earned her B.S. in chemistry from Colorado State University. During her time as an undergraduate student she developed nitric oxide releasing polymer devices for applications towards thrombosis prevention.
