Federal Appeals Lawyer & Appellate Attorneys

The federal procurement legal litigation system can be very intimidating. When a contracting agency or contracting officer issues a final decision, small businesses and larger contractors may just accept the decision and move on. However, when your case is reviewed by skilled federal appellate lawyers, potential causes for the government’s unlawful decision can be uncovered before appellate judges.

The federal appeals process is designed to give contractors another chance to present the legal error to the appropriate appellate court, such as the US Court of Federal Claims, ASBCA or CBCA Boards of Contract Appeals or the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. 

At Watson & Associates, LLC, our federal appeal lawyers represent large and small business defense contractors who have faced an adverse legal decision at the contracting offer level or lower court level. Since a federal appellate case is not a new trial, there are some issues that the appeals court looks at de novo. Filing a federal appeal means finding a clear legal or factual error that supports a reversal of the lower court or contracting officer’s decision. Unless a federal appellate attorney has some substantive knowledge of procurement law and the sub issues complained of, then filing a government contracts appeal case will more than likely bring unfruitful results.

Why File an Appeal?

Contracting officers and trial court judges can make incorrect and unlawful decisions. Federal contractors can receive unfair treatment or be subject to court decisions full of reversible error. The unfair decisions can result from misapplication of the Federal Acquisition Regulations by the contracting officer, or improper evidence decisions made by the trial court judge. In many cases, the improper decision can be reversed by having an experienced appeals attorney help.

  • Contracting Officers do not always follow FAR regulations or may have abused their discretion.
  • Lower court judges may have unlawfully disregarded evidence provided at trial that may have had a substantive impact on the outcome of your case.
