Jason Workmaster focuses his practice on government contracts-related litigation, including contract claims and disputes, bid protests, and civil False Claims Act (FCA) cases. He has represented a host of clients in these types of cases before the boards of contract appeals, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (COFC), the Government Accountability Office (GAO), and U.S. District Court. He also routinely assists clients in responding to government audits and investigations. Chambers USA has recognized Mr. Workmaster for his government contracts expertise, noting that clients say he "is an excellent government contracts attorney" and that "his greatest strength is his ability to explain very complicated regulatory and legal subjects in lay person's terms to ensure his client is well informed and can therefore make sound decisions."
A former partner in the highly-regarded McKenna Long & Aldridge government contracts practice, Mr. Workmaster is also recognized as an expert on a wide range of substantive government contracting issues – including cost allowability, the Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), contract funding, defective pricing, requests for equitable adjustment, contingency contracting, the General Services Administration (GSA) Schedules program, and the Trade Agreements Act (TAA). In addition, he is a recognized leader on FCA issues and has appeared on NBC's The TODAY Show and Canadian TV's National News to discuss the highly publicized FCA case against the cyclist Lance Armstrong.
