For Referring Attorneys
The practice of government contracts law requires a comprehensive knowledge of the statutes, regulations, policies, and procedures applicable for forming and maintaining business relationships with federal, state, and local agencies. Government contracts law firm Eckland & Blando concentrates on delivering prompt, responsive and professional legal services to businesses both large and small.
Our law firm has developed a national reputation in government contracts. Attorneys Jeff Eckland and Mark Blando presented a pivotal case to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2002. The Court held, in a 9-0 decision, that when the Government enters into business deals with the private sector, it must play by the same rules that apply to its citizens. Franconia Associates v. United States, 536 U.S. 129 (2002). At the ensuing trial, the Government was ordered to pay the plaintiffs over $13 million in damages. See id.,61 Fed. Cl. 718 (2004). Subsequent settlements of similar claims across the country have led to additional recoveries that currently total $202 million.
