Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, PC, is pleased to announce the opening of its
new Federal Government Relations and Public Policy Department.
Based in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office, the new department is led
by Martin A. Corry. Veteran health care lobbyist Kelly L. Lavin and
economic policy specialist Alex M. Brill round out the team.
“With health care policy moving strongly to the federal level, it is
vital that our practice evolve to meet our clients’ needs,” said HLB
Managing Partner Robert W. Lundy. “Marty, Kelly, and Alex are a strong
team with a proven track record. I am confident they will serve our
client interests well.”
“As health reform implementation continues to unfold, the delivery of
care is increasingly affected by decision making in Washington,” said
Department Chair Martin Corry. “Furthermore, Congress and the Executive
Branch will continue to pursue policies to reduce federal health
spending, increase transparency and compliance and improve health
outcomes. Providers and payers alike will be well served by engaging
policymakers to help guide these decisions. We are very excited to join
HLB and its nationally recognized team of health care lawyers. We look
forward to serving clients in an integrated, outcome-oriented manner.”
