Senator William “Mo” Cowan, a member of Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. and the President and CEO of ML Strategies, the law firm’s government relations and business advisory affiliate, has been named one of Boston Business Journal’s Power 50: Game Changers. This annual award honors those individuals who are making a difference in the business communities, “blazing trails” and leaving a mark on the local economy.
“Those of us who have had the pleasure of working with Mo over the years have seen first-hand how dedicated Mo is to serving his clients, the Boston business community, and the constituency of the Commonwealth,” said Robert I. Bodian, Managing Member of Mintz Levin. “This is a most fitting recognition of someone who is a great asset to the community, and we congratulate Mo on this well-deserved honor.”
After serving as the interim Senator for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts following the appointment of John F. Kerry to Secretary of State in 2013, Senator Cowan rejoined Mintz Levin and ML Strategies as Sr. Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer before being named President and CEO earlier this year. Senator Cowan practiced law at Mintz Levin for more than a decade before serving in the following leadership positions for Massachusetts Governor Deval L. Patrick: Chief Legal Counsel (2009-2011), Chief of Staff (2011-2013), and Senior Advisor (2013). He also served as a Fellow at the Harvard University Institute of Politics.
