Summer 2021

Meagan E. Garland

Cutting-Edge Practice: Garland, a partner at Duane Morris, says her legal practice can be found “at the intersection of fashion, beauty, and Black girl magic.” Representative Clients: Top fashion and beauty brands, fashion and beauty start-ups, retail stores, and industry-related trade associations. Aspiration: “There are not a lot of Black women represented in the boardrooms of fashion and beauty corporations. I want to be an influencer in that space.” How She Describes Her Own Fashion Sense: “A bright peacock among a sea of gray and navy suits.” Recent Work: Garland has enjoyed working with cosmetology schools that want to focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging by, among other initiatives, expanding their core curricula to include training related to textured hair.
