Wesley Holmes, Office Managing Partner for the Boston office and a member of the Capital Markets practice, has been named a Go To Healthcare and Life Sciences Lawyer by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. This award is given to lawyers who are considered leaders in their field, innovative thinkers who present their clients with creative options, and viewed as the “best of the best” by their peers.
Holmes draws on nearly two decades of experience advising companies and banks on some of their most sophisticated transactions including public securities offerings, high yield debt offerings, M&A finance, private and venture offerings. As his profile mentions, he has built a reputation as a leading healthcare and life sciences lawyer not only in Boston, but in the US and globally and has advised on over 30 matters valued at more than US$14 billion in the last year alone.
Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly highlighted a few of Holmes’s recent transactions including his representation of P3 Health Partners, a patient-centered and physician-led population health management company, in its completed business combination with Foresight Acquisition Corp, and his representation of Sight Sciences, Inc., a growth-stage medical device company focused on the development and commercialization of proprietary devices that target the underlying causes of the world’s most prevalent eye diseases, in its US$240 million initial public offering on Nasdaq.
In addition to his market leading practice, Holmes serves as a leader of Latham & Watkin’s Boston office. Alongside other practice leaders, he has helped develop and execute a strategic plan which has successfully grown the healthcare and life sciences capital markets practice in Boston.
