After spending the last ten years as a high-level staffer on the Senate Finance Committee, Pat Bousliman has joined Holland & Knight’s public-policy and regulation practice as a senior policy adviser.

The National Association of Chain Drug Stores has been building out its government-affairs group. Recently added: Jill McCormack from Malady & Wooten; Julie Philp, previously director of government relations for the Association of Community Pharmacists; and Joel Kurzman from Abbott Laboratories.
