Senator Cowan will serve as Master of Ceremonies of the mission’s U.S.-Israel CONNECTED Summit
U.S. Senator William “Mo” Cowan, Of Counsel at Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. and Chief Operating Officer of ML Strategies, the firm’s government relations and strategic consulting affiliate, is among the Massachusetts business leaders accompanying Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick on a trade mission to Israel to build upon the strong connections between the business and academic communities of Israel and Massachusetts.
Senator Cowan will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the U.S.- Israel CONNECTED Summit, part of Governor Patrick’s 2014 Innovation Mission to Israel. The summit will bring together hundreds of American and Israeli business leaders, academics and government leaders to participate in industry-specific discussions on topics such as medical devices, neuroscience, Internet of Things, eHealth, water tech, and cyber security.
The mission, which takes place May 27-29, is led by The New England-Israel Business Council (NEIBC) and includes more than 50 businesses and entities as part of the delegation.
Senator Cowan returned to Mintz Levin in November 2013 following his tenure as interim U.S. Senator for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, a seat Governor Patrick appointed him to fill after it was vacated by Secretary of State John F. Kerry. He previously served as Governor Patrick’s Chief Legal Counsel and, later, Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor.
Prior to that, Senator Cowan was a Member in the Boston office of Mintz Levin where he represented a diverse array of commercial clients in business and regulatory matters.
