Focused experience: We focus exclusively on government contracts matters, guiding sophisticated clients as they navigate their most complex matters. We're supported by the resources and complementary practices of a large, national law firm – including corporate/M&A, IP, white collar, government investigations, litigation, and many others.

Track record: We've achieved success for clients on high-profile, large-dollar, precedent-setting cases before key legal venues such as the U.S. Government Accountability Office and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

Diverse industry and government experience: Members of our team have previously served as federal prosecutors, U.S. Navy attorneys, GAO attorneys, and in-house counsel.
