Experienced, depth and breadth practitioner Jay has been a government contracts lawyer since 2011 and provides advice and representation on manifold aspects of government procurement. This includes, but is not limited to, bid protests, contract administration and compliance advice, claims, performance disputes, and appeals. This also includes, but is not limited to, small business issues, domestic sourcing, cost and pricing issues, and contractor ethics and present responsibility.
Agile, strategic advocate Jay was named counsel in no less than 100 bid protests, interventions, and cost entitlement protests before the U.S. Government Accountability Office (“GAO”) and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (“CoFC”). He successfully represented contractors in many contract administration and performance disputes, including instances where a contractor faced the prospect of default termination. He has, before the Board of Contract Appeals, even obtained conversion of a default termination to a termination for convenience. For small business clients, Jay has successfully defended size protests, and has guided veteran-owned businesses following Notices of Proposed Cancellation.
Insightful solution finder Jay is a former U.S. Army Infantry Officer and Iraq War Veteran. He graduated from GW Law School in D.C., and was Agency Counsel for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) from 2011 to 2017, before entering private practice. This gives him distinctive understanding of Federal procurement, which he uses to better conceptualize solutions, advise contractors, and work with the Government.
