Government Contracts/Litigation Associate – Northern Virginia

Our client, a Texas-HQ law firm, is searching for a growth hire in its top-rate government contracts team in Northern Virginia.

The team at the law firm consists of experienced government contracts attorneys and litigators who specialize in contract claims and disputes with the federal government. They provide their clients with legal guidance on issues that arise from their relationships with the federal government and private partners. The team helps clients resolve contract disputes, bid protests, and disputes between prime contractors and subcontractors in commercial litigation. Their expertise extends to representing non-traditional government contracting clients operating under “other transaction” agreements with the U.S. government.

The team has an active practice of representing contractors in bid protests at the Government Accountability Office (GAO), U.S. Court of Federal Claims, agency level, and state-level protests. They also handle size protests before the Small Business Administration (SBA), including the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA).

The firm is headquartered in Texas; as such it takes pride in its fantastic ethos and focus on wellbeing and maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Its Partners and Associates are involved in business development and are encouraged to be leaders in knowledge management and leading diversity or pro bono initiatives.

One of the key sells of this law firm is that while it pays market rate, it tries incredibly hard to keep away from the ‘BigLaw’ experience – associates are encouraged to fully take their vacation leave and turn off their phones while they are away. Caregiver leave is very generous and the culture is described as ‘kind and considerate, down-to-earth’ and a place where ‘a lot of people have families’.

The firm is also incredibly flexible, with most teams working 2-3 days in the office but reasonable accommodations being made for more or less office time.

Candidates must be qualified in the State for which they are applying. Pay is in accordance with BigLaw scale.
