Karen Sinclair

Dynamic and energetic, Karen is passionate about working with major multinationals and Australian start ups to strategically protect, manage and commercialise their innovation in Australia and internationally.

Title: Principal, Patent & Trade Marks Attorney

Qualifications: Bachelor of Science

Karen focuses on giving her clients the perspective to turn their IP into a working portfolio of assets which delivers commercial outcomes, enhances their competitive position in the market and which is aligned with the overall objectives of the business.

‘I love seeing my clients’ products on the shelf. Innovation is often remarkable, but unless it’s successful in the marketplace it hasn’t done its job – and neither have I.

Technically qualified in organic chemistry and life sciences and with 30 years’ experience as a patent and trade marks attorney, Karen works on a diverse range of start up and SME-owned global patent and trade mark portfolios for Australian clients, and also for well-known global multinationals in the chemical and pharmaceutical fields before the Australian Patent Office.

She has extensive experience in medical and biodegradable polymers, feminine and infant hygiene products, product formulation, consumer health care and nutraceuticals, vaccine technology and diagnostic methods.
