Pursuing, securing and maintaining a government contract requires navigating a host of complex legal issues. Widely regarded as one of the premier government contracts practice groups on the West Coast, the Oles Morrison Government Contracts team is known for its ability to advise clients at all stages in the government contracting process while keeping business objectives in focus and controlling costs.
We work with government contractors large and small across a wide variety of industries, including: construction, base operations, maintenance, defense, maritime, engineering, health care, aerospace, information technology, energy and communications. Our team of experienced and nationally recognized government contracts attorneys work collaboratively, combining their diverse legal experiences to provide wrap-around services to our clients. We have the knowledge to guide clients of all sizes seamlessly through every step of the government contracting process at the federal, state and local levels.
The Legal 500 (2020 Edition) recognized Oles Morrison as one of the leading law firms for Government Contracts in the United States.
At Oles Morrison, one of our primary goals is to help our clients win government contracts. Sometimes this involves representing our clients in bid protests. Our team has a proven record of success winning bid protests and defending contracts awarded to our clients. We regularly represent contractors in pre- and post-award protests at the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (COFC), the FAA Office of Dispute Resolution for Acquisition (ODRA), state courts, and before procurement agencies. We handle bid protests of all sizes and complexity, across multiple industries. Before we file a protest, we make sure our clients are educated and informed on the protest process, and fully apprised of the potential costs, benefits and risks of a protest. Oles Morrison’s record of published protest decisions speaks for itself. For a list of our Bid Protest record and to learn more about how to win and defend contracts, please visit our Bid Protest page.
Oles Morrison takes great care in providing legal counseling and litigation services relating to government contract claims and disputes. Clients turn to us for assistance in preparing requests for equitable adjustment and certified claims. We work to identify every possible solution to keep our clients out of the courthouse, but when litigation is necessary our team has the experience and resources to aggressively represent our clients against the federal government at the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, Civilian Board of Contract Appeals, and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. We also represent clients involved in subcontracting claims and disputes on government contracts in both federal and state courts. For more information on how Oles Morrison helps contractors through the equitable adjustment and Contract Disputes Act (CDA) claims processes, please see our REA, Claims and Disputes page.
From bid to ground-breaking to completion, and if necessary, to the courthouse, we assist our clients on all phases of public construction projects. Our team – which includes multiple American College of Construction Lawyers fellows, authors of numerous articles and books on federal government construction contracting, and a past-chair of the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry, to name a few – has advised on and litigated some of the largest public construction projects in the country. We utilize our deep bench of nationally recognized construction lawyers and government contracts attorneys to represent prime contractors, subcontracts, suppliers and design professionals in all kinds of public construction projects. Our team not only understands the statutes and regulations that apply to public construction projects, we also understand how construction companies operate and how construction projects are executed. Our unique skill set allows us to offer clients efficient and effective counseling and representation across federal, state and local public construction projects.
Our team understands the unique opportunities and challenges small businesses face in the federal government contracting marketplace. We have extensive knowledge of the ever-changing legal issues that arise in procurements set-aside for small businesses, mentor-protégé agreements, and compliance with small business subcontracting requirements. Oles Morrison offers robust legal counseling to clients participating, or looking to participate, in a variety of small business or socio-economic based programs, such as: 8(a) Business Development, Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB), Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), HUBZone, Women Owned Small Business (WOSB), and AbilityOne. We also pay particularly close attention to the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) ever changing regulatory landscape, and work with both large and small businesses seeking to maximize teaming and joint-venturing opportunities through SBA’s 8(a) and All Small Mentor-Protégé programs, while at the same time not running afoul of SBA’s affiliation rules. Our practice also includes representing clients in size protest and appeals before SBA Area Offices and the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals.
The biggest hammer the federal government has at its disposal is the ability to suspend or debar a contractor. Over the last decade, the number of suspension and debarment actions has skyrocketed. Commonly known as the “corporate death penalty,” the impact of a suspension or debarment on a contractor’s business, livelihood and reputation can be devastating. We recognize the severity of this sanction, and mobilize quickly on behalf of our clients and put the necessary actions in motion to keep our clients in business. This includes recommending and assisting clients with internal investigations and disclosures to avoid suspension and debarment actions all together, helping our clients demonstrate present responsibility and/or contesting facts that underlie the government’s basis for suspension or debarment, and negotiating administrative agreements. We also counsel our clients on how to avoid cross-debarment actions. Our attorneys have a history of helping clients avoid suspension and debarment even in the bleakest of situations.
Increasing government regulation and enforcement means that government contractors are under intense scrutiny for fraud and other misconduct. Along with this scrutiny comes the risk of False Claims Act (FCA) proceedings being brought by the federal government or qui-tamrelators. Oles Morrison has the experience to navigate clients through complicated and sensitive investigations of misconduct and fraud. Our team approaches each matter to determine potential compliance risks and provide proactive forward-thinking solutions. We regularly advise clients on issues involving mandatory disclosures, export control violations, civil fraud, and subpoenas issued by government entities. We work with clients to avoid FCA litigation, but when it is unavoidable we vigorously defend our clients in federal court against such claims.
The best way for a government contractor to avoid litigation is pro-active and knowledgeable advice on contract administration and regulatory compliance. We provide turnkey, responsive, properly scaled contract compliance and administration support to help clients avoid the consequences that may result from unfamiliarity with contract requirements and compliance issues. Our team has vast experience advising government contractors on all aspects of contract administration and regulatory compliance. In fact, one of our attorneys even co-authored what is widely recognized as the preeminent textbook on administering federal government contracts.
Contractors pursuing a government contract frequently find it beneficial, or necessary, to embark on teaming agreements, joint ventures, or other strategic alliances. Our team is skilled at evaluating the best choice for your organization, whether it be a prime-sub teaming agreement, an unpopulated or populate joint-venture, a mentor-protégé joint venture, or a multi-small joint venture. We then prepare the necessary agreements to maximize the potential for our client’s team to succeed, while at the same time limiting potential risks to our client from the arrangement. We also assist contractors with drafting and negotiating subcontract agreements, as well as development and compliance with small business subcontracting plans.
We help our clients in the maritime industry on the unique challenges they face contracting with federal, state, and local governments. This includes advising on bid protests, intellectual property and data rights, contract administration, claims and litigation. With deep experience in the industry, we regularly handle matters dealing with the U.S. Maritime Administration, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Navy.
In addition to our team’s work on federal government contracts matters, our team has significant experience counseling and litigating a wide-spectrum of state and local procurement matters. Our team includes attorneys with significant experience on state and local government contracts matters up and down the West Coast.
With deep roots in the Pacific Northwest, Oles Morrison has long represented aerospace contractors doing business with the federal government. Our team has significant experience advising aerospace contractors on wide variety of government contracts issues, such as contract formation and performance, regulatory compliance, subcontracting, data rights, commercial items, Other Transaction Authority (OTA) contracts, export controls, cost accounting audits, ITAR and foreign military sales. We have a long history of representing government contractors in claims, bid protests and other disputes against the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, NASA, Federal Aviation Administration, and state/local government entities.
