As head of the Kilburn & Strode trade marks department, and delighted to have been acknowledged as being in the world’s leading 250 women in IP, Carrollanne works to be a leader in the field.

Having been called as a barrister, Carrollanne spent a year in pupillage with a Queen's Counsel specialising in intellectual property. She moved then into industry, first in-house at Rothmans International working on both luxury goods and tobacco products, and later on to 'The Body Shop'. Finally, she moved into private practice, and describes this transition as 'poacher turned gamekeeper'.

Carrollanne is experienced in all aspects of portfolio management and enforcement both in the UK and abroad. Her experience in-house makes her particularly aware of the commercial and practical needs of her clients. She has given lectures and presentations at various professional seminars in Canada, the USA and Japan and has appeared on television and radio discussing IP issues.

She is a fellow of CITMA, a member of INTA and the American Bar Association. Carrollanne is listed in Legal Media Group's 'Trade Mark Law Practitioners’ and in ‘Leading Women in Business Law'. She has been shortlisted in Euromoney’s European Women in Business Law Awards, in the 'Best in Trademark' category. She has been named one of the top 250 women in IP in Managing IP over several years.

Carrollanne has been ranked in the top tier of UK individuals for ‘prosecution and strategy’ in The World Trade Mark Review's WTR 1000 for the last five years.
