Life sciences business consulting and services company Trinity Life Sciences has added in-house veteran Paul Lucchese as its first general counsel.

Lucchese has joined the Waltham, Massachussetts-based company after seven years as vice president and general counsel at software development company EnterpriseDB and brings 30 years’ in-house legal experience at technology companies. 

Before joining EnterpriseDB he was GC at another software company, Aternity, and earlier in his career spent a number of years at Candela Corporation’s and Aspect Software’s top lawyer. He also had a stint as president of Outsourced General Counsel, a firm that provided legal services to technology companies. 

“I’m pleased to have Paul join Trinity’s executive team,” said Rebecca McNamara, CFO and head of corporate operations at Trinity. “His broad business knowledge and legal background make him a perfect advisor for our senior team during this high growth phase.”

At Trinity Lucchese will be a member of the firm’s executive operating committee and report directly to McNamara. He will be responsible for leading the company’s legal operations and global compliance activities.

“I’m most excited about the ongoing organic and acquisitive growth of Trinity and the opportunity to create additional technology solutions for our clients,” Lucchese said. “The potential to offer additional value to our life sciences clients through technology solutions that will allow them to bring life-changing products to market in a more efficient and effective way is a motivation for me.”

Trinity is a leading advisor in life sciences commercialisation, offering services including corporate strategy, product planning, market intelligence and benchmarking to large biopharma and medtech clients. Since the company was founded in 1996 it has grown to have more than 1,600 people across offices in the US, Canada, Germany, the UK and India. 

In August Trinity entered into a ‘strategic partnership’ with management consultancy giant Bain & Company that saw Bain take a minority stake in the firm. The news followed Trinity forming a partnership with private equity firm Kohlberg & Co last November and acquiring D Cube Analytics in the summer, in a move that saw it add data science and digital transformation capabilities to its commercialisation portfolio.
