Evers Legal has been exclusively engaged by Baxter to help fill a newly created Senior Counsel position, to be located in the company’s new Cambridge, MA research facility serving the BioScience side of the company — which will be spun out in late 2015 as Baxalta.
We prefer candidates who are local to the Boston area… seeking highly qualified attorneys with major law firm M&A experience. The role includes supporting the core BioScience business as well as Baxter Ventures, which invests in early-stage healthcare firms. Ideal candidates will be 6+ years out of law school. In-house experience desirable but not required. This opportunity is ideal for a senior law firm associate or junior partner who wants to make the right move into an in-house career. Compensation is strong and includes significant equity.
Daily activities will include licensing, business development support, outside counsel management on deal work, and strategic counseling to the R&D team. Position will report to a senior level attorney at Baxter HQ in Deerfield, IL (north suburban Chicago), and travel to Baxter HQ will be required.
This is a uniquely exciting opportunity… you will be well positioned as a key player as the BioScience division of Baxter becomes a separate publicly traded company (Baxalta) next year. Call Mike Evers at 312-225-1144 with any questions or email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
