Patrice Perkins turns creative dreams into reality. While in law school, Patrice saw a need to make intellectual property law accessible and approachable for creative entrepreneurs. So in 2010, she founded Creative Genius Law to partner with creative professionals with vision who need legal guidance to protect and leverage their intellectual property.
Some of Patrice’s most notable clients are Luvvie Ajayi of Awesomely Luvvie, Tees in the Trap, by Arsha Jones, Kim and Tim Lewis of CurlMix, Lauren Ash of Black Girl In Om, Jetta Bates-Vasilatos of Bravo’s Tour Group and Jocelyn Delk Adams of Grandbaby Cakes – these are just to name a few!

Patrice and I talk about how she carved out her niche, the ins and outs of trademark law; like naming your business, applying for a trademark and why DIYing your trademark application or using LegalZoom is a bad idea. We also discuss more complex strategies on how to structure your trademarks, licensing agreements, using the likeness of celebrities on your products, copyright issues with tee-shirts, and some popular celebrity trademark issues.
