Allison D. Pugsley
Contrary to what Allison Pugsley expected when she graduated from law school, she spends much of her days doing math. Specifically, she helps clients navigate the pricing calculations required under the Veterans Health Care Act of 1992, the TRICARE retail pharmacy program, and the Federal Supply Schedule program.
In addition, Allison works with clients to maximize profits and mitigate risks in their contracts with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Acquisition Center and the regional Veterans Integrated Service Networks, the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia, the Department of Defense (DoD) TRICARE health program, and the Centers for Disease Control. Allison also leverages her pricing knowledge to help clients strategically position their products on the VA and DoD formularies.
Allison has more than a decade of experience representing biotechnology, medical device, and pharmaceutical companies in connection with federal procurements. She advises on the full lifecycle of government contracts preparing and submitting an offer, contract negotiations, contract administration, contract modifications, and contract terminations. Allison also routinely represents clients with respect to audits and internal reviews relating to federal contract pricing, and advises on voluntary disclosures and settlements with the government. Her practical, problem-solving approach allows her clients to resolve disputes with the government in an efficient and effective way.
Allison speaks extensively on healthcare procurement, pricing, and federal formulary topics. She currently serves as vice chair of the American Bar Association Section of Public Contract Law Health Care Contracting Committee.
Prior to joining Hogan & Hartson (now Hogan Lovells), Allison served as a judicial clerk to the Honorable George W. Miller of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
