Coppersmith Brockelman is proud to announce Roopali Desai has been named to the Phoenix Business Journal’s prestigious 40 Under 40 Class of 2016, which recognizes up-and-coming business leaders under the age of 40 who have a major impact in the Valley’s business and charitable communities. This year, a record of nearly 400 nominations were submitted for consideration.
Roopali was honored for her professional background as one of the state’s top election/government law attorneys, as well as her extensive community work over the past decade. Currently, Roopali serves as the president of the Board of Directors for the Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest, which advocates for Arizonans who have limited resources, and she serves on the Board for the ACLU of Arizona, where her expertise in election law helps the organization navigate rights equality and government transparency. Further, she was recently nominated to the Board of Directors for New Pathways for Youth, which empowers the highest-risk youth.
Earlier this summer, Roopali was also recognized by Az Business Magazine as one of the 2016 Most Influential Women in Arizona.
