Former Special Assistant U.S. Attorney and litigation attorney with the federal government, focusing on government contract matters, including acquisition planning, solicitation, contract formation, contract administration, and terminations for convenience or default. I have counseled clients on all aspects of contract, grant, and cooperative agreement law as well as specialized vehicles such as multiparty scientific research and international agreements. I also have experience in federal personnel law, including representation before the MSPB and the EEOC. I am familiar with anti-discrimination law and matters relating to termination of employment, failure to promote, standards of conduct issues, and a broad range of other employment issues. For more than a decade, I represented the federal government as a creditor in chapter 11 and chapter 7 bankruptcies, reclaiming property, prosecuting and defending claims, obtaining relief from the automatic stay, and filing and defending other contested matters, adversary proceedings and appeals.
