Barbara Alexander

Managing Attorney at Alexander Legal LLC

“There is no passion to be found playing small — in settling for a life that is less than you are capable of living.” — Nelson Mandela.

Barbara enjoys the practice of law so thoroughly that she is licensed in three states (so far): California (2002), Georgia (2010) and Nevada (2001). Her passion for intellectual property dates back to the mid-90s when she returned from living in Dublin, Ireland to work for a Boston-based venture capital firm, investing in life sciences and technology companies. Attending law school in Washington, D.C. at Washington College of Law, American University from 1998-2001, Barbara’s legal training focused on federal law – of which trademark, copyright, and patent are a significant part.

Since 2001, Barbara has practiced in the private, government, and non-profit sectors, always with the goal of improving the communities in which she lived. In January 2014, she opened her own intellectual property boutique firm, Alexander Legal LLC, located in Atlanta, GA. The firm’s clients vary in size from start-up to publicly traded company in a variety of industries.

In addition to currently serving as Co-Chair of the Leadership Council for Year Up Atlanta, Barbara serves as Vice President of the Leadership Committee for the Georgia Association for Women Lawyers.
