Our attorneys have handled legal matters involving federal, state and local construction projects. We understand the unique statutory and regulatory requirements that impact public procurement. We have represented contractors, subcontractors and suppliers on federal project disputes in the United States Court of Federal Claims, federal contract appeals boards and United States District Courts. Regarding state projects we have litigated construction claims under state procurement schemes before administrative law judges and in the state courts. Our attorneys have represented cities as well as contractors in municipal construction disputes.
