Government Contracts and Bid Protests

We have provided consulting services and have served as an expert witness to clients in matters related to procurement, government contracts, and bid protests. Our work has focused on technical analysis of bids, project management, and evaluation of contractor performance. This work has typically been performed on a very-tight timeframe and in collaboration with counsel and other experts, including experts in government accounting.
