BOSTON - A Boston bond law firm lost its bid to remain with the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority because it represented the authority's former financial adviser at the same time, according to authority sources.

While serving as the long-time bond counsel for the MWRA, the law firm of Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky & Popeo was also retained by former investment banker and financial adviser Mark S. Ferber to act as his personal attorney. Ferber is now under federal investigation for securities law violations.
