HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Global law firm Goodwin
announced today that Dr.
Wenseng “Wendy” Pan
has joined its Life
Sciences
practice as a partner in the Hong
Kong

investments, and complex IP-based transactions. She is active in the
U.S.-China life sciences community and is a recognized deal maker and

“China is well on its way to becoming the second-largest biotech market

companies to consider for their public offerings, and Chinese investors
are a significant capital source for biotech companies around the
world,” said Mitchell
Bloom
, Chair of Goodwin’s Life Sciences practice. “Our Life Sciences
team is focused on advising our clients on both their China-focused and
cross-border matters and Wendy’s extensive experience and leadership
will be invaluable as we continue to build on our life sciences
capabilities in China and globally.”

“Bringing Wendy on board reflects Goodwin’s commitment to continuing our
growth in Greater China,” said Yash
Rana
, Chair of Goodwin’s Hong Kong office. “Wendy is among the few
go-to lawyers for life sciences deals in China, and we are thrilled that
she has chosen to join the Goodwin platform.”
