Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, the premier provider of legal services to technology, life sciences, and growth enterprises worldwide, has hired Joshua Beser to the firm as a corporate partner in the New York office. He will be a member of the emerging companies practice, representing early- and growth-stage consumer brands and technology and life sciences companies in corporate matters and as outside general counsel.
Beser brings in-house operating experience at consumer brands and technology and life sciences companies. Most recently, he served as general counsel at Away, a New York-based direct-to-consumer travel brand.
“Josh’s combination of in-house and law firm experience will allow him to offer both early- and late-stage clients practical insights and valuable perspectives,” said Doug Clark, managing partner at Wilson Sonsini. “Josh is well known in New York’s in-house legal community, particularly among general counsels for technology, consumer, and life sciences companies. He’s also developed extensive ties to the area’s dynamic start-up community, in large part through his work advising venture-backed, early-stage companies and founders in the market. We’re very pleased to welcome Josh to our firm.”
“I’m really excited about joining Wilson Sonsini because the firm has such an impressive brand and legacy of working with iconic and innovative technology and life sciences clients,” said Beser. “Returning to private practice gives me an opportunity to apply my in-house and law firm experience toward partnering with founders and executive teams, start-ups, and investors. I’m also looking forward to collaborating with the firm’s impressive team in NY and others in the Northeast, and contributing to the growth of the emerging companies practice in the region.”
