Jason focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, financial services litigation, class-action disputes, white collar, and government investigations.  He has extensive experience counseling clients through a wide range of matters including supervising difficult discovery disputes involving federal and state courts, issues before federal and state regulatory agencies, managing internal government investigations, and analyzing internal policies for clients looking to mitigate risks.   

In addition to Jason’s wide-ranging litigation portfolio, he is also a nationally recognized campaign manager and political strategist.  In 2022, Jason served as campaign manager for Maura Healey’s historic gubernatorial election where he managed a multimillion dollar campaign.  Jason continues to counsel and serve as a trusted advisor to elected officials, local and state-wide candidates seeking public office. Prior to attending law school, Jason was special assistant to U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and worked on Sen. Warren’s campaigns.

During law school, Jason served as editor-in-chief of the Northeastern University Law Review. Jason was also a Summer Associate twice at Mintz in 2017 and 2018.  He was a legal intern in the Global Litigation department of a Boston-based biopharmaceutical company.


Mintz attorneys represented advocacy groups that intervened in federal litigation to support a temporary selection process for Boston’s exam schools for the 2021–2022 school year. A federal district court judge held the plan to be race-neutral, and Special Counsel Andy Nathanson helped counter the plaintiff’s motion to stop the plan’s implementation during the appeal process. Following revelations of new evidence, the district court judge reaffirmed his ruling.
