Our firm focuses on Government contracting. We counsel clients on all legal aspects of dealing with the government under various types of contracts. These include regulatory compliance, solicitation and contract interpretation, bid protests, claims (including changes and terminations for convenience), disputes (including terminations for default), appeals, Freedom of Information Act matters, labor standards, small business programs, data rights, cost accounting, and lobbying.
We represented the lead plaintiff at the Court of Federal Claims in the successful protest of GSA's Alliant procurement. Serco Inc. v. United States, Nos. 07-691C, et al. (Mar. 3, 2008). The court found errors in the technical, past performance, and price evaluations, as well as the best value tradeoffs.
We were co-counsel in the successful protest of an HHS procurement for clearinghouse services. In its decision, GAO made the rare recommendation that the agency replace the source selection official, and the agency complied. University Research Co., B-294358 et al., Oct. 28, 2004.
We represented a financial institution that participated in a Contractor Team Arrangement under the GSA Schedule program in a lease of computer equipment. The Board agreed that our client was entitled to file and litigate a claim in its own name, and did not have to act through the equipment supplier. Key Federal Finance, CBCA 412, April 19, 2007, 2007 WL 1197780.
Petrillo & Powell, P.L.L.C. emphasizes responsive and focused service for our clients. We understand that our clients come to us for problem resolution and risk avoidance, and we act appropriately. Our approach to counseling and representation may differ from that of other firms.
