Alessia is a third year student at Osgoode Hall Law School and a graduate of the Schulich School of Business. As an entrepreneur, Alessia founded Unprecedentedly Chic in her first year of law school, immediately realizing her passion for working with start-ups in the creative industries.

Having worked within the legal department of a leading Toronto entertainment marketing agency, as well as summered at a Bay street boutique business law firm, Alessia takes any opportunity to immerse herself within the entrepreneurial field. Given her background in marketing and branding, and understanding the importance of intangible assets to start-up and growing companies, it is no surprise that Alessia plans to build a legal practice in intellectual property.  As a student, she continues to be guided by this goal and mindset.

Alessia is a Research Assistant for Osgoode’s Associate Dean and Intellectual Property Professor, Carys Craig, as well as an Innovation Clinic Fellow and Editor for IP Osgoode. Her greatest advancement to the Osgoode community, however, has been founding the Osgoode Fashion Law Society (OFLS) in 2016, and acting as the president and leader of the club throughout all three of her academic years.

Currently, Alessia is completing an internship at Motion Picture Association – Canada, where she heavily focuses on online copyright infringement. Her interest in applying her legal knowledge to the creative fields stems from her love for music. Having played the piano since the age of seven, and going on to teach music for six years, Alessia is determined to make a change in Toronto’s creative industries through helping entrepreneurs better protect and commercialize their works. For now, Alessia works with multiple Toronto-based designers and musicians through her branding and consulting platform, Rumble Consulting.

Alessia looks forward to completing her articles at the Intellectual Property and Technology boutique, Deeth Williams Wall LLP, where she can focus on the legalities surrounding branding, trademarks and copyright, while also broadening her interests to the ways in which technology is legally impacting various creative industries.
