The American Lawyer Names Kailasanath to Inaugural ‘West Trailblazers’ List
The American Lawyer named Arnold & Porter partner Vinita Kailasanath to its inaugural list of “West Trailblazers.” The special supplement recognizes professionals in the West who have "moved the needle in the legal industry."
Kailasanath is the Administrative Partner for Arnold & Porter's San Francisco and Silicon Valley offices. Through her background in molecular and cellular biology combined with her presence in Silicon Valley, Kailasanath is able to “bridge the traditional technology-life sciences divide” in order to “work well with a variety of clients across the digital health ecosystem.” She uniquely works at the intersection of various practices that come into play in complex digital health transactions, making her an integral member and leader of client teams.
Over the past year, Kailasanath and her team helped life sciences clients establish worldwide commercial distribution networks for COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics. She notes that the pandemic has “accelerated the trend” towards increased use of technology in the healthcare space. She continues to apply her decade of experience working on digital health deals to advise on “cutting-edge issues” for life sciences and technology transactions clients.
“In the coming years, I particularly look forward to facilitating additional digital health efforts to increase access to healthcare and improve health outcomes in underserved communities globally,” Kailasanath said.
