Becker, a multi-practice commercial law firm with attorneys, lobbyists, and other professionals at offices throughout the East Coast, announced its representation of new digital health client, the Butterfly Network. The firm will provide federal lobbying services in Washington, D.C, beginning August 1, 2021.

Butterfly Network’s mission is to democratize access to medical imaging, enable high-quality care in low-resource settings, and advance global health equity. The company hopes to champion a new era of healthcare with the world’s first handheld whole-body imager, costing under $2,000.

Becker’s Government Relations team will be led by federal lobbyists Bert Gómez and Omar Franco who will work closely with Butterfly’s Vice President of Government Affairs, Andrea Hechavarria.

Mr. Gómez remarked, “Becker’s Federal Lobbying team is committed to ensuring The Butterfly Network’s innovative vision, blending healthcare and technology, is promoted at the federal level. We are proud to support their revolutionary approach to the well-being of underserved communities around the world and look forward to helping them improve the accessibility of this sustainable healthcare solution.”

Government Law and Lobbying has been a core practice for Becker since its founding in 1973. The firm’s team of lawyers and lobbyists includes several who have served in high-level government positions and distinguished themselves in the political and legislative arenas in state, local, and federal government.

Becker’s federal practice began in 2011 with the addition of two Capitol Hill Chiefs of Staff and the Legislative Director of a US Senator. The bipartisan powerhouse team quickly grew the practice to ten lobbyists and a portfolio of public and private clients throughout the United States including 3M, Univision, ViacomCBS, iHeartRadio, FOX, The National Association of Broadcasters, the Motion Picture Association, NAHREP, the Latino Coalition, Virginia Port Authority, the City of Virginia Beach, the University of Miami, Hennepin County, MN, and Palm Beach County, FL, among others.
