Merlyne Jean-Louis (Managing Partner, Jean-Louis Law)

Merlyne Jean-Louis

As a former dancer, I have a special mission: to provide legal support to people who do not view themselves as business owners. I saw how many were being taken advantage of and wanted to do my part to help them. Thus, I use my legal, business, and creative knowledge and experience to assist my clients.

I’m also a legal commentator. I have discussed intellectual property law on Bloomberg, CBS, The Verge, and Marketplace Tech. I have also been a guest on numerous podcasts.

I received my J.D. from Duke Law School and B.A., cum laude, from NYU. I am admitted to practice in New York and my admission to California is pending.

I look forward to learning more about you and your business! In the meantime, feel free to visit my website to receive a free business checklist and read my informative blog.
