Goodwin has been named a 2018 “Massachusetts Powerhouse” by Law360, recognizing the firm's successful efforts in capitalizing on the tech explosion in Boston with everything from major initial public offerings guided by its life sciences practice to the ideas incubator it runs in its cutting-edge building on Boston's waterfront.
“We are deeply focused on four key areas: technology and life sciences, financial industry, private equity and real estate industry,” said Andrew Sucoff, chair of Goodwin’s Boston office. “As a result of really focusing our energy and efforts in these key areas, we have been able to attract and retain the best-in-class lawyers, do the best-in-class deals and, as I call it, success begets success.”
“All of these deals have a commonality, and the commonality is innovation,” added Stuart Cable, Chair of the M&A and Corporate Finance practices for the firm’s Technology and Life Sciences groups. “And so, by executing off of this strategy, focusing resolutely on life sciences, focusing resolutely on tech, focusing on these innovation industries, in part because of Boston's success, we have been successful.”
Law360’s Regional Powerhouses recognizes firms based on the percentage of the firm’s lawyers based in the state, and the strength of the matters handled in the state during the past year.
