Havens Quoted in the New York Times Discussing the FDA

Tobacco and E-Cigarette Lobbyists Circle as F.D.A. Chief Exits

Jonathan Havens, Food and Beverage Practice chair, member of the Life Sciences Practice, and former FDA attorney, is quoted in this New York Times article. Jonathan discusses FDA Chief Scott Gottlieb’s decision to resign and the potential impact on the industry.

"There have been well-intentioned commissioners before Gottlieb," said Jonathan. "But they were not as good at capturing the attention of the nation, of the stakeholders. I think that momentum could very well stall on some of these products, or be lost completely."
