  • Advising clients regarding the different terms and conditions that apply to contracts for commercial items under Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Part 12, including assisting commercial item contractors with pricing issues, claims and disputes, and terminations of commercial item contracts.
  • Advising clients regarding the unique requirements that apply to U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) when it uses commercial item contracts for weapons acquisition programs. 
  • Assisting clients with GSA audits, subpoenas, and suspension and debarment proceedings. 
  • Working closely with commercial IT vendors and other commercial companies that are entering the Government marketplace for the first time to help develop an understanding of the unique rules, regulations, and compliance obligations associated with government contracts.
