Agnes P. Dover

Having practiced in the government contracts arena for over 30 years, Agnes Dover has vast experience guiding clients in the national security, energy, and information technology sectors through the maze of acquisition regulations. She has worked with clients to respond to government audits and investigations, advised on compliance programs, negotiated prime-subcontract agreements, obtained government contract approvals in connection with M&A transactions, and advised on various federal technology transfer programs. When government enforcement agencies target clients for investigations, she advises them on suspension and debarment and how to avoid the potentially adverse consequences.

Agnes previously served as deputy general counsel for Procurement and Technology Transfer of the U.S. Department of Energy. She is on the Board of Trustees of Baldwin-Wallace University and is the Chair of the Board of Advisors of the Columbus School of Law at Catholic University.
