Jayna Rust selected for NAPABA Leadership Advancement Program

May 5, 2021

Government contracts associate Jayna Rust has been selected for the 2021-22 Leadership Advancement Program (LAP) of NAPABA, the nation's largest Asian Pacific American membership organization representing the interest of 50,000 attorneys, judges, law professors, and law students.

Jayna is among 24 attorneys across the country selected for LAP, a year-long experiential program where fellows cultivate and transform their leadership styles, develop a vision for their careers, and foster relationships with peers within the profession, especially with in-house counsel.

Jayna advises companies, transportation authorities and other entities regarding their rights and obligations when doing business with the Federal Government. She helps clients recover money owed under Federal contracts, protest problematic contract awards and challenge adverse agency actions. In doing so, she represents them before agencies, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), Boards of Contract Appeals, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, as necessary.

In 2018, Jayna was named a “D.C. Rising Star” by the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of D.C.
