3 Q&A Interview with Goodwin Partner Kristopher Brown, New MVA-Member (Medicon Valley Alliance)

Life Sciences partner Kristopher Brown answered three questions on his new membership with Medicon Valley Alliance. On why Goodwin as a US based company decided to join MVA, Brown said "after Queen Margrethe II awarded my law firm Goodwin the Grand Cross of the Order of the Dannebrog for “meritorious service to the Kingdom of Denmark, I was tasked by Goodwin to build roots in the country, especially since my 23andMe profile had informed me that I had a 13% genetic match to the region." He continued, "originally born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, I was also attracted to the much more temperate Danish climate, where I was certain that my mobile law practice would thrive bringing strategic and legal guidance and advice to early-stage Danish and other Nordic life sciences companies seeking to expand their product offerings to the U.S. I would be remiss if I didn’t also note I was attracted by the free expresso shots and midday smørrebrød offerings at the MVA cafeteria."
