Thompson Coburn is pleased to announce that Jeff Newman has joined Thompson Coburn’s Washington, DC, office as a partner in the Government Contracts practice. Jeff focuses his practice on all aspects of government contracts, federal and state procurement, and administrative law and litigation. He represents government contractors and commercial vendors before virtually all federal agencies, including the Departments of Defense, Energy, Education, Transportation, and Homeland Security and the General Services Administration.
“Part of our strategic plan is to expand our Washington, DC office. Jeff’s outstanding reputation and strong background will greatly benefit our clients, especially his niche practice in protecting the intellectual property of companies that do business with the federal government,” commented Margie Krumholz, the firm’s DC office managing partner.
Jeff acknowledged the firm’s diverse client base as a selling point. “They have a number of top-flight clients that may require the types of services I provide as the firm looks to expand its Government Contracts practice. The firm has a strategic approach to growing the practice, and I’m eager to take an active role in that expansion.”
Jeff has negotiated numerous agreements under various R&D and licensing contexts, and regularly counsels contractors on a wide range of compliance matters from conducting internal investigations to creating and implementing corporate compliance programs. He also performs due diligence and provides strategic direction for government contractors involved with mergers and acquisitions. Recently, Jeff was selected to serve on Law360’s first Government Contracts Editorial Advisory Board.
Jeff received his J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law, where he served as editor-in-chief of the Case Western Reserve Journal of International Law, and he earned an M.A. from Case Western’s Graduate School of Political Science. Jeff graduated with a B.A., cum laude, from the University of Rochester.
Prior to joining Thompson Coburn, Jeff was a partner with Foley & Lardner LLP and a member of that firm’s Government Procurement and Business Litigation & Dispute Resolution Practices, as well as the Nanotechnology and Life Sciences Industry Teams.
