About Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo P.C.

A Boston institution since 1933, Mintz is now a national powerhouse, claiming such blue chippers as Biogen and General Electric as clients. Bay State pedigree notwithstanding, Mintz’s growth has been centered in the financial markets in New York, regulatory circles in DC, and IP-rich tech and biotech hubs of San Diego and San Francisco. 

From Coast to Coast

Founded more than 85 years ago, Mintz has grown from its New England roots. The firm initially focused on real estate and the banking industry, with an interesting early niche of representing theaters and motion picture chains, but it has expanded into nearly every conceivable practice area. The firm has grown geographically as well and now has strongholds on both coasts and a branch in London. Mintz focused its growth on California, DC, and New York—all of which have grown steadily since the mid-2000s and bolstered the firm’s transactional and litigation practices. Despite the growth, however, Boston remains home to more than half of the firm’s associates.

More than Meets the Eye

Mintz is nationally recognized for its healthcare, life sciences, and technology practices, counseling clients across a range of industries. The firm is also home to lobbying subsidiary ML Strategies, which opened for business in the mid-1990s. ML Strategies offers consulting services on everything from real estate to energy to transportation. The firm also hosts MintzEDGE, a startup accelerator focused on helping new businesses get off the ground, offering consulting and legal services to entrepreneurs in order to navigate the often-overwhelming process of starting a business.

Driving Change

Mintz is serious about public service. According to the firm, “For our founders, helping people in need and providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all was essential.” Mintz provides pro bono counsel to more than 300 clients each year. The firm also has a pro bono partner who oversees the pro bono program and provides training and guidance to associates. One of the firm’s self-proclaimed drivers is addressing the disparity and long-term barriers to equity within the legal profession and the world. Mintz has received awards from local and national groups alike and works on a wide range of issues, including domestic violence and sexual assault, political asylum and immigration, affordable housing and homelessness, human rights, nonprofit incorporation assistance, children’s health, environmental protection, and civil rights.
