"Government contractors are faced with a variety of issues when pursuing and performing government contracts, from ensuring compliance with the myriad FAR clauses and other regulations inherent with federal contracts, to protesting improper agency actions, to negotiating and maintaining contractual relationships with subcontractors and other contracting partners. Whatever issue may arise, I am dedicated to counseling my clients through the situation and ensuring their company’s continuing success."
