Job Description Summary:
Fenwick & West handles complex, innovative technology transactions for some of the most prominent life sciences and technology companies in the United States and abroad.

We are currently seeking associates with five (5) to eight (8) years of licensing / collaboration and commercial partnering transactions experience for our growing life sciences technology transactions practice.
