About Law Office Of Lara Pearson & Brand Geek

Lara Pearson is an intellectual property (IP) attorney who crafts brand protection strategies for soulful social enterprises. Lara began practicing IP law in 1999. After reading Yvon Choiunard's book, "Let My People Go Surfing" in December, 2005, Lara became one of the first few hundred members of 1% for the Planet in January, 2006. By June, 2006 Lara joined the Board of Directors of 1% and by February, 2008 The Law Office of Lara Pearson became one of the world’s first Certified B Corporations. Yay!

Lara’s deep involvement in the social enterprise community enables her to see things other attorneys miss, providing immeasurable value to her clients. For example, Lara once identified infringement on one of her client’s marks and got the infringer to switch brands (cease and desist) before her client even knew of the infringement.

Lara is exceptionally skilled at making intellectual property (IP) law easy and fun. She has a real knack for conveying her knowledge in an engaging and entertaining way that makes complex subject matter not only simple and understandable, but also enjoyable.

My law firm became a B Corp because real leadership is by example. I deeply value community and know that we are better together than we are on our own. The B Corp community is an incredible group of passionate, bright, down to earth peers who value collaboration over competition and believe in using the power of our businesses to create abundance for ourselves, our communities and the world as a whole.
