law and equine law. She is a frequent speaker at the National Equine Law Conference
in Kentucky, the equine law conference in California, and is regularly
published on this subject.  Her
presentation at the 2009 Conference discussed the use of expert testimony in
equine litigation, which was also the topic of the chapter she authored in the
recently released American Bar Association book “Litigating Animal Law Disputes: A Complete Guide for Lawyers.”  In 2005,
she was the first speaker on equine law at the American Bar Association in
Chicago, IL.  Ms Bloomquist was the chair

She represents equine clients throughout the world.


She received her B.A. degree in
1986 from the University of Minnesota and her J.D. degree from the University Of Oregon School Of Law in 1989. She was a
member of the National Moot Court Team, earning recognition as the top regional
female oral advocate.

and transactional matters, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, and
a variety of commercial contracts.  She
