Each year, the US Government spends billions of dollars on goods and services. At some point, a client may consult you about performance, payment, or a dispute regarding their US Government contract, or will hold a Government contract as an asset to be transferred during a merger or acquisition.
Though most companies that sell goods or services to the US Government are commercial companies (your clients), applicable Government contract law is very different and somewhat more confusing than commercial law. The Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA) is a little known but very active litigation forum dedicated to litigating US Government civilian contact disputes. In addition, the CBCA provides alternative dispute resolution services on contract-related matters not covered by the Contract Disputes Act, whether those matters arise before or after a Government contract has been awarded.
