The British Legal Awards have named Goodwin the 2020 Life Sciences Team of the Year. The announcement was made at a virtual ceremony on November 19, where the Goodwin Life Sciences team was praised for its “abundance of experience.” Hosted by Legal Week in association with The City of London Law Society, the annual awards celebrate achievement and excellence in the profession.
Goodwin’s global Life Sciences practice embodies the firm’s capital-meets-innovation platform and ability to advise both the innovators and investors around the world. In 2019, Goodwin opened its Cambridge office in the heart of the high-technology Silicon Fen region, home to some of the world’s largest and most innovative life sciences clusters. The addition of an on-the-ground presence in Cambridge has expanded the firm’s ability to support disruptive life sciences and technology companies, and solidifies Goodwin’s position as the leading firm in the UK and European life sciences market.
Goodwin’s Life Sciences practice has been recognized for excellence by Chambers UK and Legal 500 UK. The latter commented that Goodwin’s Life Sciences team is known for their ability to “work together seamlessly” and provide “high-level strategic advice.”The British Legal Awards winners were decided by an independent judging panel made up of general counsel, senior members of the legal community as well as former law firm managing partners.
