Building a Latinx Beauty Brand
Even as an associate in Weil’s Dallas office, Regina Merson, Founder and CEO of beauty brand Reina Rebelde, was thinking about her passion – wanting to create a line of makeup focused on the Latinx community. Regina fulfilled that dream, and we are happy to report that she has garnered much media attention for her company, which has been featured in Forbes, Refinery29, Allure, Vogue and O – The Oprah Magazine, and has sold her brand through such retail giants as Amazon, Target and Walmart.
In this edition of the Weil Alumni Interview Series, Linda D. Domyanic, Manager of Client and Alumni Relations for our Dallas office, talks with Regina about how she built her brand, the advice she has for lawyers considering entrepreneurship, the critical value of her Weil training, and the tremendous diversity within the Latinx community.
The Weil Alumni Interview Series has recently featured videos on our alumni’s successes, well-being, and search tips for in-house legal positions. View these videos on Weil’s YouTube channel.
Patricia Astorga, former Litigation associate in the New York office and now General Counsel at the Mintz Group, a due diligence and investigations firm, was interviewed by Corporate Counsel about her career and her new challenges as a GC. Patricia talked about her skills as a litigator being honed at Weil and as a federal prosecutor, and about those who helped her navigate the legal world as a first-generation immigrant and woman of color.
