Hogan Lovells partner Jonathan Kahan awarded Distinguished Service and Leadership Award by the Food and Drug Law Institute

Hogan Lovells Medical Device & Technology Regulatory partner Jonathan Kahan has received the Food and Drug Law Institute (FDLI) Distinguished Service and Leadership Award, recognizing his contribution in promoting public health, advancing the medical device and technology law field, and ensuring a robust and innovative regulatory environment.

Kahan was recognized by his peers during the 2020 FDLI Virtual Annual Conference earlier this month. The FDLI Distinguished Service and Leadership Award recognizes individuals who have made notable contributions to the food, drug, and medical device law community through their leadership.

During the virtual ceremony, partner Jodi Scott noted, "Jon has been an incredible mentor for me and everybody that has worked for him, and he has also been an amazing champion. I've always told younger associates that he will be tough, he has incredibly high expectations, but he always has your back, always." Thomas Burke, Chief, Division of Global Health Innovation, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, who Jon and his team helped in obtaining Emergency Use Authorization for a bCPAP device to alleviate ventilator shortage due to COVID-19 also said, "because of Jon and Jon's leadership, and the team he's brought along, there are not hundreds but thousands of women on earth in vulnerable communities, and now also over 500 babies in the last few months, whose lives have been saved and improved because of Jon's leadership."

Kahan has spent his career at Hogan Lovells where his practice focuses on complicated regulatory processes, including those related to combination products. He is the former co-director of the firm's Medical Device and Technology Practice Group and an adjunct professor who teaches medical device law at the George Washington University Law School. He is a member of the George Washington University President's Leadership Advisory Council and he is also the general counsel of the Association of Medical Diagnostics Manufacturers.
