News & Press Releases

A July 8 article published by The Boston Globe reported that the New England Aquarium is aiming to become a bold advocate on environmental matters, in conjunction with its plans for significant expansion.

Mintz Member and Chair of the Energy & Sustainability practice Tom Burton, Chair-Elect of the New England Aquarium Board of Trustees, recently led the search committee for the aquarium’s chief executive, Vikki Spruill, a longtime advocate for marine conservation. “Board members believe the nonprofit needs to forcefully advocate for conservation measures, and educate the public about what they can do,” Mr. Burton said.

The article also noted that ML Strategies is registered to represent the aquarium with respect to waterfront development on and around Central Wharf.
On June 12, MedCityNews published an article authored by Senior Director of ML Strategies Aaron Josephson addressing challenges faced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s Pre-Certification (“Pre-Cert”) program. The Pre-Cert program would revolutionize regulation and oversight of certain medical devices.




In the article, Mr. Josephson remarks that, “establishing a new regulatory paradigm for complex medical technologies is no easy task.” The pilot program has already raised a number of concerns among smaller companies, including the high cost and value related to the number of products developed. Despite the preliminary issues and uncertainty from Congress, Mr. Josephson maintains that, “the FDA should be applauded for taking proactive steps to create a regulatory climate that balances innovation and safety.”
