Sidley Austin is one of the largest law firms in Los Angeles with offices in Century City and Downtown Los Angeles. The firm’s LA lawyers advise clients on international issues in conjunction with lawyers located in Sidley’s four offices in Europe and its six offices in the Asia/Pacific region. Few U.S.-based law firms have a stronger international reach than Sidley.

Century City-based partner Josh Hofheimer’s achievements illustrate the international scope of Sidley’s LA practice. Hofheimer combines two decades of corporate, commercial, and technology law practice with the experience of having run an Australian public company to bring his clients focused, practical counsel to help them grow their business in the United States and throughout the world. His practice focuses on representing clients in the life sciences, agribusiness and food, and information technology sectors. Hofheimer’s work spans a broad array of technology, intellectual property and commercial transactions ranging from agricultural technology to medical devices, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, software, internet and new media transactions and includes developing and implementing business strategies for commercialization of multiple intellectual property platforms.

In the past 12 months, Hofheimer has successfully completed numerous cross-border deals. For example, he recently represented Sound Agriculture in the formation of its strategic partnership with Syngenta to explore opportunities to decrease nitrogen fertilizer use in China while maintaining on-farm productivity utilizing Sound Agriculture’s flagship product SOURCE. He also represented Radiology Partners, the leading radiology practice in the U.S., in the formation of a strategic alliance with Israel-based Aidoc, a provider of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for medical imaging, to offer unparalleled AI capabilities to its hospitals and health systems, and to accelerate the adoption of AI as the standard of care in radiology.
