Laura Carpenter, founder of Carpenter Law Firm and BulaLaw, has been elected president-elect of the American Society of Pharmacy Law (ASPL).

Both an attorney and a pharmacist, Ms. Carpenter has been an active member of the ASPL for many years including prior service on the Board, past Chair of the Sponsorship Committee, past member of the Communications Committee, and current member of the Educational Program Committee. “I am honored to assume a greater leadership role in ASPL.” said Carpenter. “I look forward to supporting the organization as it works to achieve its goals and expand its services to support compliance officers.”

As a practicing attorney, Ms. Carpenter advises pharmacies, healthcare providers and other health related entities on pharmacy and drug distribution matters, compliance with federal and state healthcare law, contract negotiations, risk management, healthcare business planning, electronic health information privacy regulation, third-party plans, and corporate best practices.

Ms. Carpenter founded her law firm in 2007 to meet the growing demand within the increasingly complex healthcare industry for personalized legal services with greater efficiency and cost effectiveness. The firm was recognized in 2012 as an Impact Award Finalist for exemplifying the spirit of entrepreneurialism, creating value, and initiating innovative solutions to meet industry needs. Ms. Carpenter was selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America 2013, Southwest Super Lawyers 2012, and Top Attorneys in Arizona 2012 in the category of healthcare.

Valley Attorney, Garland Brown, Ranks Among ‘America’s Tech-iest Lawyers’

Garland Brown, co-founder of the law firm Weiss Brown, has been selected by the American Bar Association Journal as one of “America’s tech-iest lawyers.” The distinction was awarded to Brown for his knowledge of technology and his ability to seamlessly blend the Microsoft and Apple platforms, a challenge rarely accomplished within the legal industry. The ABA Journal recognized Garland Brown not only for his ability to successfully enable the different software platforms to work effectively together but also for his achievement in enhancing and improving their functionality.

“While I’m both honored and humbled to be selected by the ABA for this distinction, I’m especially pleased to see the ABA Journal recognize attorneys who have made contributions in technology. Since technology plays an increasingly important role in the lives of our clients, deeply embedding technology in our law practice is naturally instinctive to us. I’m particularly proud to be on the forefront of this movement,” said Brown.

Among Garland Brown’s unique credentials are many years of experience working at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington as both a lead software development engineer and as a Director in Antitrust Compliance Law before practicing law at one of the world’s largest law firms. His unusual combination of technology and legal knowledge later prompted Mr. Brown to partner with Scott Weiss to form a law firm devoted to business and technology law, assisting emerging technology-based companies, entrepreneurs and established businesses.

“When I decided to launch my own Internet-based legal research/regulatory intelligence company, I hired Garland. He is the IT guru for his firm and an exceptional attorney. The combination was exactly what I needed to make certain my new business venture got started on a strong footing.” said Laura Carpenter, founder of BulaLaw, a legal research company.

When asked what sets the firm apart, Garland Brown attributes its success to the use of “practical legal guidance, with a healthy dose of technology and business smarts.”
