Avoid Getting Your Appeal Case Dismissed at ASBCA, CBCA or US Court of Federal Claims

As federal government contractors continue to handle contractual claims against the federal government pro se, both the ASBCA and CBCA will continue to dismiss more government contract disputes appeal cases. As a result, companies lose out on hundreds of thousands of dollars in what could have been government claims.

 Although requests for equitable adjustments are not automatically contract claims under the CDA, how you prepare your equitable adjustment request can make it easier to later convert into a compliant CDA claim. Having a government claim lawyer to prepare a sound and supported government claims can save time and prevent costly errors.
