The Details:

Quarles & Brady's Pharmacy Law Symposium brings together more than 100 industry leaders to discuss the latest and emerging trends. Our presenters have a wide variety of experience and include:

  • Marty Allain, .Pharmacy Senior Manager, National Association of Boards of Pharmacy
  • Executive Directors and Members from state pharmacy boards
  • Quarles & Brady attorneys

The program has drawn a sold-out crowd for the last two years, and this year's dynamic lineup has been designed to do the same.

NEW this year are small breakout sessions on controlled substances, specialty pharmacy, government investigations and settlements, and more. We've designed these sessions to enhance debate and exchange among speakers and participants.

Registrations should be received by Wednesday, July 12, 2017.

Confirmed speakers include:


  • Marty Allain, .Pharmacy Senior Manager, National Association of Boards of Pharmacy

Executive Director Panel

  • Dennis McAllister, Arizona State Board of Pharmacy
  • Michael A. Moné, Ohio Board of Pharmacy
  • Dennis Wiesner, Texas State Board of Pharmacy

Additional Speakers

We are pleased to offer Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit to our attendees. CLE credit is pending in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Virginia, and Wisconsin. We will issue a Certificate of Attendance to Arizona attendees, as the State Bar of Arizona does not approve or accredit CLE activities for the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) requirement. If you are member of another jurisdiction that does not honor CLE credit from AZ, FL, IL, IN, VA, or WI, we will be happy to provide the materials needed in order for you to apply for CLE credit. Please contact Jennifer Michalski, our CLE Coordinator, at [email protected].
