Law firm Squire, Sanders & Dempsey recently announced its expansion of its Frankfurt office with the appointment of intellectual property, commercial and regulatory lawyers Iliana and Philip Haleen as partner and of counsel, respectively. Both Iliana and Philip will join the global legal practice in January 2012.

Iliana Haleen, who currently heads the intellectual property practice at Bryan Cave in Hamburg, possesses over two decades of experience in international intellectual property protection. She manages the international portfolio of 1,500 trademarks registered in over 170 countries for a US-based consumer goods company, with an emphasis on multi-jurisdictional brand management. Iliana also has significant experience advising on all aspects of licensing, protection and the enforcement of intellectual property rights.


Philip Haleen is a US trained lawyer whose expertise includes antitrust and competition law, EU regulatory law, distribution law and international taxation, including transfer pricing and tax treaty work. He has practiced in Germany for nearly three decades. He both founded and managed the Frankfurt office of Faegre & Benson from 1991 until 2003.

In Frankfurt, Iliana and Philip will rejoin colleagues with whom they have previously worked; these include Horst Daniel, litigation partner and head of Faegre’s Frankfurt office from 2003 until 2009; Karl Walter, corporate partner; and Louis Wakatsuki, labor and employment counsel.

Established in 2006, Squire Sanders’ Frankfurt office has particular expertise in corporate, banking and financial services, arbitration, litigation, private equity, capital markets, labor law, and tax law. With the addition of the Haleens, that expertise will now include intellectual property law.
