Court of Federal Claims Lawyers

  • The United States Court of Federal Claims (CoFC) has nationwide jurisdiction over cases involving all claims against the United States in excess of $10,000, particularly concerning tax disputes, government contracts, and takings cases. DBL’s Court of Federal Claims lawyers handle government contract disputes and bid protests filed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.  Some recent matters include:
    • Represented company in a claim against the United States Navy for failure to pay under a contract for the engineering, production, and manufacture of specific Naval warfighting equipment.
    • Represented a company in a dispute with NASA for breach of a contract under the Space Act Agreement (SAA) regarding the commercialization and manufacture of certain products related patents owned by the client.

    In addition to serving as lead counsel and managing cases throughout the life cycle of litigation, we have worked with many other law firms as local counsel in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.  Each case may only have one attorney of record under the CoFC rules.  We can serve as your attorney of record, make in-person appearances from our office in Washington, D.C., and advise you on the procedure, judges, and best practices for the Court of Federal Claims.

    As an alternative to the GAO, bid protests filed in the Court of Federal Claims require that the protestor follow particular and unique procedures, including a Pre-Filing Notice.  We have the experience and know-how to help you select the right forum and to be successful.

    For more information about our experience, reach out to lead partners Tom Dunlap or David Ludwig.
