Jonathan Havens, chair and co-chair of the Firm’s Food and Beverage and Cannabis Law Practices, is quoted in this MedCity News article. A former attorney at the FDA, Jonathan discusses the decision of Scott Gottlieb to resign as the FDA Commissioner, and his legacy. Specifically, Jonathan comments on the FDA’s 510(k) plan that would impose a 10-year limit on older predicate devices.

"I get why the agency did that, but attacking the 510k system is not the panacea [or] the silver bullet to medical device regulation," said Jonathan.
