Withers launches a Boston office

7 July 2021 | Applicable law: US

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our newest US office. Located in Kendall Square, one of the leading centers for life science research and commercialization, and a significant venture capital hub is a further step in Withers’ growth in servicing the tech and life sciences sectors around the world.

Earlier this year we expanded our international Withers tech practice with the hire of a new team of life sciences and venture capital focused attorneys in Boston. James Shaw, global head of Withers Tech team comments, “For many of our clients who are managing private capital funds, the tech and life sciences sectors are major focuses, and the devastating damage of Covid-19 has hugely reinforced the importance of the life science industry. The addition of our Boston team affirms our commitment to technology, life sciences and venture capital clients in the US and establishes a really robust network to back all of our clients working and investing in the sector around the world.”

Boston life science partner, John Serio shares, “We’re really excited to be opening our doors in Kendall Square. Our practice is very much focused on serving the needs of Boston’s life sciences businesses, so it’s essential that we are located here in this biotech center. The importance of Kendall Square as a life science hub is noted by the presence of virtually every major pharmaceutical in and around the area.

For more information on our new office, team, and offerings, please contact your usual Withers attorney, or a member of the Boston team below.
