Corporate Associate (Life Sciences) — Mid-Level

Location: San Francisco, CA

Goodwin offers a new and exciting opportunity for a mid-level corporate associate to join our aware winning Life Sciences team in northern California! You will join a dynamic practice that concentrates on corporate transactions for cutting-edge high growth, life sciences, healthcare and technology companies in the US, Asia, and throughout the world. This includes working with venture backed private and public companies through a range of transactions including equity financing, IPOs, M&A and corporate governance.

Goodwin represents leading public and private life sciences companies across their entire life cycles — including financings, capital market transactions, mergers and acquisitions, collaborations and licensing, intellectual property and regulatory matters. In 2018, Goodwin advised issuers on more than a dozen biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry IPOs worth in aggregate nearly $2 billion — making Goodwin the number one advisor in this sector by offering value. This work included representation of Moderna Therapeutics in the largest biotechnology IPO in history.

Goodwin has been named life sciences “Practice Group of the Year” by Law360, “Biotech Firm of the Year” by US News and World Report — Best Lawyers, and “IP Law Firm of the Year” by LMG Life Sciences. The firm also has approximately 100 technology and life sciences-focused lawyers across its California offices and is focused on growth in this area.

Candidates should have experience in a broad range of corporate and transactional matters, including venture capital transactions, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, and private and public offerings of securities. Experience working with life sciences companies preferred, but the group will also consider candidates who have only an interest in life sciences work (but not direct experience). Highly qualified candidates must have general experience both working in teams and in managing substantial components of transactions independently, along with outstanding academic credentials, comparable law firm experience, and excellent written and verbal communication skills. Candidates should also have California bar admission (or eligibility to obtain admission promptly).
