Carrollanne qualified as a barrister, then a Trade Mark Attorney, and is now a partner at Kilburn & Strode. 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'. She joined Kilburn & Strode in 2000 and heads the firm's prominent Trade Marks Group.
Carrollanne is experienced in all aspects of trade mark prosecution 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 and at the Institute of Directors, and appeared on television and radio discussing IP issues. She is 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 was shortlisted in Euromoney Legal Media Group's European Women in Business Law Awards in the 'Best in Trademark' category.
