Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that the ABA Business Law Section has honored partner and Life Sciences Industry Team chair Scott E. Ludwig with its Section Chair’s Award for 2010. The outgoing Section chair gives the annual award to an individual who has made extraordinary contributions over the course of the previous year. Mr. Ludwig received the 2010 award from outgoing chair Nathaniel L. Doliner during the recent ABA Annual Meeting held in San Francisco.

“Scott Ludwig provided outstanding leadership to the Business Law Section in the development of a business plan for the preparation, production and marketing of continuing legal education materials,” said Doliner. “He truly deserves this award.”

Mr. Ludwig currently serves as chair of the LLCs Committee and the Life Sciences Task Force for the ABA Business Law Section, and recently completed a two-year term as the first-ever Content Officer of an ABA Section. His responsibilities as Content Officer involved overseeing all of the content produced by the Business Law Section, including publications such as The Business Lawyer and Business Lawyer today, book titles, and CLE and committee meeting materials. Mr. Ludwig also oversaw efforts to draft the first content plan for the Business Law Section, which will now be used as a model for other Sections of the ABA. Prior to his position as Content Officer, Mr. Ludwig served as chair of the Section’s Publications Board.

Serving as chair of the Bradley Arant Boult Cummings Life Sciences Industry Team, Mr. Ludwig advises a broad range of clients on corporate and tax issues related to acquisitions and sales, including the negotiation, drafting and review of acquisition and sales documents. His clients include both start-ups and established businesses operating in the high technology, biotech and life sciences sectors as well as traditional manufacturing and services companies. Mr. Ludwig holds an L.L.M. in Taxation from the University of Florida College of Law, a J.D. from the University of Alabama School of Law, and a B.S. (cum laude) from the University of Alabama.
