Karen Sebaski to Present at Managing Intellectual Property’s 2018 Women’s Leadership Forum
New York—Holwell Shuster & Goldberg associate Karen Sebaski will moderate a panel at the fifth annual Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) Women’s Leadership Forum on December 4 in Menlo Park, California. The forum will focus on U.S. and global IP developments, providing an opportunity for women in IP to hear the latest insights from in-house counsel and leading law firms in the space.
Karen will moderate a panel focused on privacy issues for IP practitioners, discussing topics including the new California Consumer Privacy Act, GDPR, and other key global privacy laws to watch. Speakers on this panel include the deputy general counsel and chief privacy officer of Chronicle, a company that helps organizations find and stop cyber attacks before they cause harm, and the senior director of legal at Linden Lab, which created the largest-ever 3D virtual world filled entirely by the creations of its users.
A registered patent attorney, Karen has represented clients such as NXP Semiconductors, Sharp, AT&T, and T-Mobile in high-value patent litigations involving a variety of subject matters, including Near Field Communication, liquid crystal cell display technology, and cell phone roaming solutions. She has worked on cases at the frontier of science, including a successful resolution of patent malpractice claims involving “short-hairpin RNA” technology, which is being used to discover new cancer therapies.
Karen is an active member of the Women in IP Law Committee of the NYIPLA and the Intellectual Property Law Committee for the Federal Bar Council. Earlier this year, Profiles in Diversity Journal named Karen to its esteemed Women Worth Watching list.
