Claims, Appeals, Disputes, and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

The Contract Disputes Act establishes an administrative law process for pursuing and resolving claims and disputes involving Government contracts. The attorneys of Petrillo & Powell have lengthy and broad experience in all aspects of this process, including the preparation of contract claims and appealing Contracting Officer’s final decisions. We have prepared and negotiated requests for equitable adjustment arising out of change orders, constructive changes, terminations for convenience, and other compensable events. We have defended contractors from Government claims and counterclaims, and terminations for default.  (We also handle appeals from size determinations and NAICS appeals (see Bid Protest page).
