GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS LITIGATION

In government contracting, bid protests are a fact of life. Our attorneys have extensive experience in counseling clients through the debriefing process when they lose a contract, deciding whether to file a protest, and preparing the protest for filing with the GAO or the Court of Federal Claims. We also vigorously defend against protests filed against contract awards made to our clients. Our attorneys possess considerable experience in filing and handling small business-size protests before the SBA Area Offices and Office of Hearings and Appeals, and they have experience in pursuing and defending protests filed with the FAA’s Office of Dispute Resolution for Acquisitions.

The litigation experience of our attorneys extends beyond the protest arena, as we regularly represent clients in handling disputes with both federal customers and third parties (typically prime contractors or subcontractors) before various tribunals, including federal and state courts, the ASBCA and the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals. We also are experienced in representing in federal courts clients that are faced with civil and criminal charges related to government contracts. Further, our attorneys advocate and utilize alternative dispute resolution techniques when appropriate.
