Solutions in a Competitive World

Government Contracts

Our government contracts clients perform critical tasks in defending U.S. interests throughout the world, as well as vital tasks at the regional and state level. Attorneys at Sperduto Thompson & Gassler have represented companies that manufacture some of the most advanced satellite technology known to man, the company that makes the cockpit canopy used for our basic fighter jet trainer, the enterprise that developed advanced underwater submarine detection electronics, and the company that helped feed our troops in the Middle East. We were honored to play a small part, on particularized disputes, in each of those efforts.

We also have extensive experience in transactions occurring between government contractors including the formation of joint ventures and teaming agreements, conflict of interest resolutions, contract novations, and other negotiations arising from mergers and acquisitions among contractors. We defended and won the bid protest of the largest lease in GSA history relating to construction of the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. We litigated and negotiated settlements of government contracts issues with respect to JFKIAT and its landlord, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, itself an entity of the three-state compact. We have led arbitrations involving executive compensation and conflicts issues. We prevailed in a three-week federal court jury trial challenge to the operations contract entered into by the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority. Our government contract clients include national and international clients in national defense, information technology, aerospace, civil engineering, development, construction, and transportation. We also represent individuals involved with national security operations.

All of our government contract clients report a similar theme. Or as General Counsel at a Fortune 100 government defense contractor confirmed:

“Trust is the cornerstone of any relationship, and in the heat of battle, trusting your litigator is paramount. I trust Kim and his team.”
