Karen Goh

Chair of the Board

As Chair of the Board, Karen Goh heads the Henry Goh group of companies in Malaysia and Singapore in leadership and corporate direction.

She graduated with a Bachelor of Laws from the University of London. Karen obtained work experience from other legal firms before joining Henry Goh in 1997 and is our firm’s principal registered Malaysian trademark agent. Working alongside our founder, her father at the helm for more than a decade provided her with invaluable experience and knowledge of the IP industry. All this indelibly prepared and equipped her when she assumed the pivotal role of Managing Director in 2008 and then Chair of the Board.

Her vision for the firm is broad and bold: with the aid of her team, she intends to make Henry Goh one of Asia’s top ten intellectual property firms. She continuously strives to establish increased awareness of intellectual property protection and rights among consumers and businesspeople alike.

Karen is a member of the International Trademark Association (INTA), Malaysian Intellectual Property Association (MIPA) and the Asian Patent Attorneys Association (APAA) and frequently participates in domestic and international conferences. She is also a corporate member of American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM), British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC), Malaysian Dutch Business Council (MDBC), Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MGCC) and other local and foreign business councils and chambers of commerce.

Karen’s unassuming nature, her keen sense of corporate responsibility and compassion are a testament of her late father’s legacy, and she remains actively involved in various humanitarian causes and charitable projects. For leisure, she relaxes with yoga and is also an enthusiastic member of the Toastmasters Club.
