The Washington, DC office of McGuireWoods is seeking a partner or senior counsel in its Government Contracts Practice.
Our nationally-recognized team of more than 60 attorneys represents Fortune 100 and other companies and individuals at every stage of civil and criminal investigations and enforcement matters at both the federal and state level. From informal inquiries through disciplinary proceedings and appeals, we advise on matters involving a broad spectrum of federal and state agencies and other investigative bodies. Drawing on a deep bench of former federal and state prosecutors and regulators — including veterans of the Office of Counsel to the President, the Department of Justice, and the Securities and Exchange Commission — McGuireWoods has earned the trust of elite organizations and individuals worldwide on some of the most notable matters over the last decade. We consistently rank among the world’s premier investigations firms in the GIR 100 and Law360 has named us a White Collar Firm of the Year.
When individuals and organizations face serious allegations of regulatory or criminal malfeasance, experienced legal counsel is an absolute necessity. At McGuireWoods, our Government Investigations & White Collar Litigation team is devoted exclusively to these difficult, high-stakes inquiries. Our success is due, in part, to our attorneys’ experience conducting and supervising investigations while serving in important leadership positions at federal and state regulatory and law enforcement agencies.
Qualified candidates will have extensive experience (15+ years) in government contracts counseling, bid protests, claims and REAs, and other forms of dispute resolution and regulatory enforcement actions in the federal contracting arena. The selected candidate will be expected to counsel clients on all aspects of procurement matters. The Partner must have extensive knowledge of the Federal Acquisition Regulations and possess significant experience with government contract compliance programs, ethics and compliance training, contract performance and management issues, due diligence for mergers and acquisitions, Service Contract Act and other government contract-related labor considerations, Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) issues, and government contracting audits. The Partner candidate will need bid protest experience before the Court of Federal Claims (COFC), GAO, and agencies, along with strong claims experience at the Boards of Contract Appeals and Court of Federal Claims. The candidate should also have experience on small business-related issues, including matters before the SBA OHA. A portable book of business is preferred, but not required.
