Q&A with April’s Featured editor: Sarah Fischer
Sarah Fischer is an Associate in Goodwin’s Boston office.
BMW: WHEN YOU WERE 8, WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?
Sarah: When I was eight years old, I was obsessed with the TV show Dr. Quinn, and wanted to be just like her. I wanted to be a doctor, particularly one who on top of having excellent diagnostic skills and the ability to treat anything, could also save the day, ride a horse, and make everything work out in the end. After I took my first chemistry course in high school, I realized that I was far more interested in that than in biology or medicine, but part of that always stayed with me, as I ended up pursuing medicinal chemistry before going to law school.
BMW: WHAT IS SOMETHING ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
Sarah: I really want to go back to New Zealand. I spent three weeks there before I started at Goodwin, and it was an unbelievable experience. Everything there is so breathtakingly gorgeous – I feel like I never saw blue and green the same way as I did in the waters off Auckland. And the mountains on the South Island are unlike anything else. Plus, the food is unbelievably good and I am pretty sure I have not had a proper flat white since I was in the airport on my way home.
BMW: WHAT SPURRED YOUR INTEREST IN BIOSIMILARS?
Sarah: One of my favorite things about being an IP litigator is being on the forefront of technology. Given the growth of biologics and biosimilars as treatment options in recent years, being involved in this work offers a new and exciting chance be involved in science that is changing people’s lives.
