Government Contracts

  • Government Contract attorneys support all aspects of the Navy and Marine Corps research, development, and acquisition programs, and ensure consistency in policy and practice in this subject area. 
  • Our attorneys advise clients and provide legal opinions on a variety of Federal acquisition law-related matters to include: contractual interpretation; drafting and reviewing contractual modifications; contract disputes and claims; responding to bid protests; drafting and reviewing acquisition-related documents; and preparing or reviewing responses to Congressional, Government Accountability Office (GAO), Inspectors General, and Naval Audit Service requests, and writing acquisition policy and legislative proposals.
  • Government Contract attorneys also represent the DON before the Government Accountability Office (GAO) (bid protests) and the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA) (contract claims).  They work with the Department of Justice in contract related cases at the Court of Federal Claims (COFC) and in Federal District Courts.  They participate in complex negotiations with contractors, subcontractors, and their attorneys, on legal matters arising throughout the acquisition process.  Attorneys also are also asked to represent the DON on acquisition matters before Congressional members and their staffs, and other federal agencies such as the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the Small Business Administration (SBA).
