For more than four decades, Miller & Chevalier has counseled and litigated on behalf of a broad range of government contractors in the full spectrum of government contract matters – classified and unclassified, defense and civilian – throughout the procurement lifecycle. This includes helping contractors understand and comply with the complex government contracting regulatory regime.  We work with some of the largest federal government contractors and with companies that are new or infrequent participants in the government contracting market.  

Our experience includes:

  • Protesting and defending contract awards before the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, federal agencies, and state and local tribunals;
  • Preparing requests for equitable adjustment and contract claims in connection with the performance and termination of government contracts – as well as defending against government claims – and litigating those claims if necessary before the boards of contract appeals, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit;
  • Helping contractors respond to government audits;
  • Advising clients on cost allowability and Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) issues;
  • Counseling clients regarding the complex rules governing the General Services Administration (GSA) Schedules program;
  • Protecting government contractors in intellectual property and data rights disputes; 
  • Using our firm's multi-disciplinary teams – including seasoned lawyers with significant white collar, congressional, prosecutorial, and in-house experience – to conduct high-stakes internal investigations of whistleblower and government-alleged compliance issues, and reporting to boards of directors when needed; 
  • Representing contractors in suspension and debarment proceedings;
  • Combining our lawyers who have specialized government contract experience with those who have many years of jury and bench trial experience to defend contractors in complex False Claims Act (FCA), qui tam, criminal, and civil fraud actions;
  • Counseling clients involved in prime/subcontractor disputes and litigating those disputes as needed; 
  • Litigating unfair competition claims asserted in federal and state courts, including claims relating to misappropriation of trade secrets, tortious interference with contracts and business opportunities, and business conspiracies; 
  • Litigating the full array of employment issues that government contractors frequently face, including non-disclosure, non-competition, non-solicitation, employment, and severance agreements; and
  • Conducting due diligence reviews in M&A transactions involving government contractors.
