A Recap of Resilience: Goodwin’s Life Sciences Practice

Last year, our Life Sciences practice continued helping clients thrive in the face of changing tides.

In 2022, life sciences companies witnessed a sea of changes that brought both new challenges and opportunities. Goodwin helped, and continues to help, clients across the life sciences ecosystem navigate these stormy waters as they look for strategies to enhance research and development, optimize value from licensing, enter M&A and other transactions, and secure capital for growth.

This recap highlights the resilience of these industry-leading companies and the agility of our full-service, integrated global practice. We are continually inspired by our clients and look forward to our ongoing partnerships as we embrace 2023 and the evolving life sciences legal landscape.
