Nationwide Federal Contractor Attorneys Aggressively Fighting Back When the Government Makes an Unlawful Decision

Washington DC federal contractor lawyers fighting back in all statesMany federal contractors seek help with a set of complicated rules and regulations that are attached to their current contracts. Whether you are litigating a bid protest, filing a Contract Disputes Act (CDA) claim with the contracting officer, or defending your company in a government investigation or criminal case, the deck is sometimes stacked against you. Without government contractor lawyers that can aggressively fight back, your company’s future and even yours can be in great jeopardy.  

Oftentimes, the agency contracting officer makes a decision that on its face does not comport with procurement laws or displaces some level of unfairness. Sometimes, a company’s local counsel may not be well-versed in government contracting laws.  When the stakes are high, seeking legal counsel outside of the company could be the answer. This is where the federal contractor lawyers at Watson & Associates, LLC can help.

Sometimes, you are deprived of an opportunity to get companies revenues but the Government Accountability Office (GAO) or the Small Business Administration (SBA) issues an unlawful decision. Again, the stakes are high, and you are stuck with knowing what the next steps should be. With law offices in Washington DC, and in Denver, Colorado, Watson’s government contractor lawyers can help you by filing an an appeal to the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (SBA OHA), or by filing a new protest at the US Court of Federal Claims. The law firm litigates various types of bid protest cases before the various federal courts.

Government Contracting Solutions for Small Businesses and Large Defense Contractors

Companies doing business with the government often rely on local business attorneys or corporate legal counsel to resolve government contracting issues. Unfortunately, many contractors quickly find out that they are spending tens of thousands of dollars due to the confusing procurement laws. 

In other situations, small businesses or large defense contractors find themselves staring down the barrel of a government investigation or criminal indictment for government contractor fraud. These are not areas where local contractor lawyers who are not familiar with federal procurement laws should take a chance. The DOJ’s website proudly displays results where small businesses and large business alike are being convicted of federal criminal charges involving federal contracts.

At  Watson & Associates, LLC , our government contractor lawyers bring over three decades of procurement experience to the table. We litigate the underlying issues that the US Attorney, DOJ and OIG offices alleged to finally get to conspiracy charges and False Claims Act liability.

In many court rulings againtst contracting agencies, the agency tries to get a result by ‘coming through the back door’ with what the ‘front door ‘prohibits them from doing.  Watson & Associates government contracting lawyers provide legal advice and procurement litigation support in the underlying areas of federal procurement laws.
