We Put People First
Client relationships and satisfaction are at the center of everything we do. We strive constantly to better understand our clients and their business objectives, and we foster an inclusive and supportive culture that encourages our team to bring their unique experiences, skills, talents, and perspectives to our work and help our clients succeed.

Excellence and teamwork drive results. We strive for excellence in all aspects of our work: responsiveness, communication, creativity, problem solving, and hard work. We collaborate as a unified practice to build the trust necessary to help our clients solve their most pressing challenges.
Our client service teams are better advocates by thoughtfully and respectfully engaging with our clients, communities, and each other. We participate actively in the organizations and forums that support the aerospace, defense, and government services industry—and our local communities—so we are better placed to serve our clients.

We act with integrity, treat others with fairness and respect, take ownership, and do what we say. And we believe diverse teams are essential to the best problem solving and client service. We proudly spearheaded the ABA Public Contract Law Section’s 21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge©.
With more than 60 professionals supporting our aerospace, defense, and government services industry team across the firm, our market-leading team brings a diverse mix of experience and bench strength to help clients navigate their most pressing issues: bid protests, claims and disputes, government investigations and False Claims Act defense, mergers and acquisitions, employment issues, insurance recovery, intellectual property, suspension and debarment, and international contracting.
