Representative Matters

  • Appeal of Columbia Construction Company, CBCA No. 3258 (Successful award of over $500,000 for a lost productivity claim against the General Services Administration on the IRS Service Center renovation project in Andover, Massachusetts).
  • Protest of Parks Closure Group, LLC, a consortium of five companies protesting the award of a $350 million contract for remediation services to a competitor. The contracting agency responded to the protest by taking voluntary corrective action, which involved suspending the original award decision and reconsidering all proposals. This granted our client a renewed chance at receiving the contract.
