BMWB, WT Enterprise Center, and the SBDC hosted the first annual Entrepreneur Law School. Topics included Entity Choice and Operation; Employment; Building a Brand; Finance, Handling a Lawsuit, Contracts & Real Estate, and Succession Planning. Thank you to all attendees. It was a pleasure giving back to our community.
Attorneys Tyler Topper, Hollye Hawkins, Wes Wright, and Leah Davis competed against 4 middle school students from Ascension Academy in a mock Science Bowl at the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce. BMWB participated to raise awareness in the event. The students will be moving on to compete in the February event hosted by the Pantex Plant. Good luck to our area students!

Among the international businesses that call Amarillo home, Global Animal Products, Inc., located on the aptly-named Airway Boulevard, is truly a high flyer. Global Animal Products manufactures and markets mineral supplement products primarily to the feedlot cattle, poultry, and dairy industries. As their name implies, Global Animal Products conducts business on a global scale-in the U.S., South Africa, Brazil, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand. Their website is www.gapinc-usa.com.
Ken Ridenour, the sole shareholder and President of Global, is a technology leader in the industry and it shows when you visit the company. A hallway at Global Animal Products (pictured below) is lined with certificates that document Ken and his company’s role in four U.S. patents, six foreign patents, and 30 U.S. and foreign trademarks. It’s an impressive sight in the eyes of this intellectual property attorney. Gary Gulp, the long-time Vice-President of Global Animal Products, ribs me about how much money they’ve spent on “that wall.”
