Meet the Editor – November

Q&A With November’s Featured Editor: Alex Valenti

Alex Valenti is an associate in Goodwin’s New York office.

BMW: What is something on your bucket list?

Alex: To attend all four major tennis championships in person. I’m halfway there, as I go to the US Open every year and I went to the French Open with my husband on our honeymoon. So far there have been a few highlights, including seeing Andy Murray win his first major title in Arthur Ashe Stadium; I bought a ticket at the last minute and ended up in a row full of die-hard Scottish fans. Another great moment was seeing Serena Williams win major #20 at Court Philippe Chatrier in Paris. Next stop: Wimbledon.

BMW: If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning a medal for?

Alex: Cooking dinner for 10+ people in a tiny NYC kitchen. Having grown up in an Italian-American family, nothing brings me more joy than gathering friends and family around a table for a good meal. But I have had to develop many innovative strategies over the years to do so with less than 5 square feet of counter space. I challenge anyone to make fresh pasta better than me in the same space!

BMW: What motivates you to work in the life sciences/biosimilars field?

Alex: Knowing that our work can actually make a difference in people’s lives by getting more affordable alternatives to life-saving treatments in the hands of patients as soon as possible. Being able to help our clients achieve that goal while also having the opportunity to work through complex legal issues and learn about cutting edge science is what makes work in this field so exciting and rewarding.
