Tim has devoted his 40-year practice to the representation of Government contractors in all areas of Government contract law.
He serves as an advisor to companies at every stage of the contracting process.
Tim represents a large range of Government contractors, from small minority-owned companies to top 50 Department of Defense contractors, as well as foreign companies seeking U.S. contracts. He serves as an important sounding board; he listens to a client's concerns, frustrations and challenges, and works with them to create a smart, cost-effective strategy that will produce the most favorable outcome under the circumstances.
Should a client encounter problems in the contracting process, Tim provides practical advice and creative solutions to resolve claims, avoid disaster and minimize liability. He has extensive litigation experience, but in recent years he has become a proponent of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), a technique that he believes best serves our clients' interests.
Tim represents clients before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the GAO, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA) and the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA). Whenever possible, however, his goal is to guide clients through the Government contracting maze while remaining in the background and allowing the client to take the lead in its own advocacy.
Tim began his career as a contracting officer at the CIA. That experience informs all that he does for his clients and allows him to give candid, highly-focused advice that helps clients better understand and anticipate the Government's position on a particular issue. He has had more than 20 appearances on Tom Temin's "Morning Drive" program on Federal News Radio, where he discussed various Government contracting issues. Tim is a co-founder and Board member of the Public Contracting Institute (PCI) in Washington, D.C.
