Government Contracts

Contractor Disputes, Claims, + Requests for Equitable Adjustments (REAs)

While no government contractor wants or expects disagreements to arise during the life of a contract, the reality is sometimes issues arise. Our attorneys boast extensive experience helping government contractors of all sizes address common issues faced in today’s marketplace. We thoughtfully guide clients during the life of a contract and actively work to resolve disputes within the contractual and regulatory framework.

  • Appealing contracting officer decisions before the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA) or the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA).
