Casey McGlynn is a partner at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. He is a founding architect of the medtech industry and has been guiding and connecting innovators for more than three decades. Casey has played a pivotal role in the medtech industry: his legacy is so vast that the industry would not be what it is today without his contributions. He joins Andrew Cleeland to talk about his start in the industry and share anecdotes of his early experiences.
Casey explains what drove him to create the Life Sciences Group at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. “I [helped a colleague] start a company… and it really changed my life. In that first year I started two companies… I had to decide whether I was a life science guy, a tech guy, or general, and I chose life science,” he remarks. “I felt that the world was just too big... if you wanted to be an expert you had to really get in deep [to] understand.” He shares what it was like to begin and advance his career alongside the ‘giants’ of medtech like Ray Williams, John Simpson and Tom Fogarty.
