He has been admitted to practice law by the D.C.

In high school, Mr. Gulland developed an interest in the law through his passion for the debate team. He decided he wanted to work for a small law firm during the summer and sent out letters requesting a position, eventually landing a spot at Anderson Banks & Anderson in Mount Kisco, New York. He cites Judge William Banks as a mentor, and when he began his career at Covington & Burling, he was mentored by William Allen and Howard C. Westward. Throughout his career, Mr. Gulland took on many cases which others warned him had a small chance of success, but through time and hard work, he and his firm managed to turn those situations around. In addition, he is interested in land preservation and serves as senior counsel for various land preservation organizations. He is the director of the Piedmont Environmental Council, and is the longtime director and former chair of the board of Oatland’s Historic House and Gardens.
