Baxter, Senior Counsel (M&A), Boston

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 mike@everslegal.com
