Michelle Briggs is both a brand owner and trademark attorney. After spending five years as a trademark and copyright attorney for a boutique IP firm, Michelle found a problem she couldn't wait to solve, bringing essentialism to life for new parents, and so she started Basal Baby. However, she couldn't quite escape the law. Having experience as both a brand owner and a trademark attorney, Michelle has a unique understanding of the needs and pace of business owners as it pertains to the trademark process and procurement, and as such, friends kept knocking on her door for trademark advice and assistance. In 2017 Michelle opened her doors as a freelance creative works attorney, extending her trademark knowledge to help an exclusive set of small and mid-sized business understand their market risk and navigate the trademark registration process.
