Goodwin Adds Four More Partners to Life Sciences Team (Bloomberg Law)

Goodwin is continuing to add to its partner ranks, Bloomberg Law reports. Four more life sciences partners are joining the law firm. The new hires follow a group of 14 partners who jumped to Goodwin in January. Allison Nicklin, Alicia Palladino, Justin Platt, and Laura Umbrecht Gulick are all joining Goodwin’s Life Sciences practice as partners in its New York and Philadelphia offices. Goodwin last week officially announced it would open in the City of Brotherly Love with the larger group. Other partners joining include John Jones, the former chair of its healthcare transactions and regulatory practices; Thomas Gallagher, the ex-firmwide vice chair; and Rachael Bushey, the former chair of its health sciences department. The haul gives the firm the chance to grow its life sciences and healthcare business and enter a geographic market where “you have to be an insider,” said Mitchell Bloom, chair of Goodwin’s Life Sciences practice. “It was like a complete slam dunk,” Bloom said.
