Tjasse Fritz concentrates her practice on government contracts and related complex litigation. 

Tjasse’s clients have included current and prospective government contractors from a wide range of industries, including defense, healthcare, education, shipping, and information technology, as well as 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. She has advised these entities on a variety of matters, including:

  • False Claims Act litigation
  • Government and internal investigations
  • Pre- and post-award bid protests
  • Regulatory compliance and best practices
  • Proposal preparation and submission
  • Teaming agreements
  • Mergers and acquisitions

Tjasse has extensive experience managing teams at various stages of litigation, from discovery and motions practice to closeout and appeal. She has also assisted clients with public contract-related transactional issues, including contract negotiation and adjustment.

Prior to joining Blank Rome, Tjasse was a solo practitioner, where she provided legal services and general counsel to start-ups and small business clients with a focus on transactional, business, and employment law.

During law school, Tjasse served as the executive manuscripts editor of the Journal of Business and Technology Law, vice president of the Maryland Intellectual Property Student Association, and research assistant to Professor David Bogen. Her work included field research of Reconstruction-era civil rights litigation and development of binary classification models for law exam response analysis.
