Capabilities: How We Do It
Claims and Dispute Resolution—A long track record of successfully representing our clients in government contracts litigation in federal courts, including the United States Court of Federal Claims, and various boards of contract appeals.
False Claims Act—Vast experience and knowledge of procurement fraud issues are used to protect our clients’ interests at all phases of False Claims Act cases from the inception of a government investigation through trial and appeal, or settlement.
Investigations—Our interdisciplinary teams have secured a number of “quiet” victories, often in parallel investigations, in response to government investigations, and defend against government enforcement proceedings initiated by the Department of Justice, Inspectors General and other regulatory enforcement entities.
Counseling—We provide proactive risk management and compliance counseling to guide our clients through the regulatory requirements imposed on businesses conducting business with the government including, when necessary, evaluation and investigation of allegations related whistleblower complaints.
Suspension and Debarment—Ensuring that the company can continue to do business with the government or participate in government-funded programs is often critical to a company’s viability. We have broad experience working with government suspension and debarment officials and representing our clients’ interests in suspension and debarment matters and proceedings.
Bid Protests—Our lawyers have been involved in scores of bid protests before the Government Accountability Office and the US Court of Federal Claims, as well as small business standard protests before the Small Business Administration’s Regional Offices and Office of Hearings and Appeals.
Transactions—Our industry experience and subject matter expertise contributes to our interdisciplinary teams that have effectively represented buyers, sellers and investors of companies conducting business in the federal sector.
